I guess I've been lucky with my '04 Sixty-5. When it was new (Aug '05) it stopped running because the fuse came apart, didn't blow just came apart. I shoved it back together and rode it home. I thought about replacing it with a modern style but had some of the old ones so used it and haven't replaced it since (12k plus miles). I do carry a spare.
These appear similar in lower amperage 'blow' ratings!!http://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?ModuleNo=493&doy=29m3 Wonder if they are OK?
My 2000 military came with a number of electrical problems, all of which were fixed by cleaning all the contacts and connectors and grounds, and replacing the battery, condenser and points.To reduce load on the system I converted all lights to LEDs (except the headlamp, of course).I also added a couple of accessory circuits, to power my cell phone/gps and to power a cylinder head temp meter.I purchased a modern ATO/ATC fuse block to hold four fuses (the plastic modern ones, not the old glass tubes) and I rewired everything to fit. Then I installed two circuit breakers, instead of fuses... so I no longer need to worry about blowing fuses, at all!
