I basically agree with you Jack.  A temporary short is the most likely cause but I can't help thinking that just because the fuse is marked "F20A" doesn't necessary mean it wouldn't blow at 10 or 15 amps.

  For what it's worth, it is also marked "PROCECTRONL 32V" .

.........A poor connection increases resistance which decreases voltage, and therefore current increases to make up for it........

Umm ....  No.  (unless you are talking about the input to a switching power supply.)

Actually, in our bikes, Voltage/Resistance/and Current are directly and inversely proportional.  The basic equation is:

VOLTS / RESISTANCE = CURRENT

if the resistance goes up, the current goes down.

........I also notice that the flat "wire" has hundreds of little black specs or dots on it throughout its central area which don't exist at the ends..........

kinda looks like welding splatter, eh?

You are correct.  Mathematically, Ohms law is sound.  I was just trying to explain it in simpler terms without getting into electron pathways, thermodynamics, and power dissipation.  Serves me right for trying to simplify things to this crowd of smart guys!

No.
The coverage is uniform throughout the narrow part of the strip and ends where the strips width increases at both ends.
It doesn't appear on the other good Indian made fuses in the other fuse holders and may be due to the heating of the strip prior to or during its melting.

No.  I don't believe it's rust.
The specs on the strip are very small and fairly uniformly distributed on both sides.  I don't know what to make of them but if I get more curious I may take one of the spare Indian made fuses and short it out thru the battery terminals just to see if a similar condition occurs.
Too bad I don't have the equipment to measure and record the ampreage that is needed to blow one of the new Indian made 20 amp fuses.  That in itself would be a good reason for burning one of them out.   :-\

It's a beautiful, but cold (48o), Saturday morning. The wife is gone for the day.
I am sitting here lamenting the apparent loss of my good friend, Mr. Sprag Clutch. He seems to have expired yesterday after a couple of weeks of illness after the engine quit and kicked back at a stop light and gave a nasty case of the Scrunchies to Mr. Sprag. After a couple of weeks and clanks and clatters, he would appear to have grabbed his last crankshaft.
Alas, we sit sadly at his home with all the spares donors gone for the weekend!
Oh, well, I can finish up the work I was doing on the bike, if it would warm up a bit!

Finally finished all the mods on my 2012 G5 and about to take it for a ride (dw already tested it, it is in perfect running order, just running a little rich coz of exhaust)

Let me know what you guys (good, bad or ugly)

euh, no. Foot peg actually.
Left side foot peg has some play. Over time and with vibrations that has damaged the thread. Got a bit worried loosing the peg while standing on it. Could hurt a front teeth. :P
No use repairing thread as long as the peg can move. First thought was liquid metal but how to? Foot peg should still be removable. After some testing I've now hammered in some wedges, made from nails. Refreshing the thread is no big deal and new bolt. Peg secure..., for wriggling with hand... after I stood on it, mm, reasonably secure, say 99.9%. Will it hold?
Has anyone had similar issue with the left peg? Any suggestions for another, lasting, repair, apart from new peg and/or sidestand?

Are the threads damaged or is the mouting post loose?

If the post is loose get a welder to tack it back in.  If the threads are damaged get to a machine shop an see what they can do for you.  Maybe thread it down to a slightly smaller size or put in a new undamage stud.  It's a critical component, don't want it to fail when you need it.
