How to change Sportster fuses
I have a 2002 Hugger 883. I swapped out the wimpy moped horn with a Bonneville, GET OUT OF THE WAY horn and heard a popping noise. I obviously blew a fuse. I received misleading to no advice online as to whether fuses exist or where they were if they happened to exist. So, out of the kindness of my heart, I will share the answer to anyone in a similar situation. While you’re here, check out some of my airbrush or theology. 😎
First, you don’t need to lift the seat. The fuses are immediately behind the triangular cover next to the battery. The triangular cover is actually attached directly to the fuse box.
The fuse box is pressed into the frame, just wiggle it out and flip it over. See all those wires going in the plastic container in your hand? The fuses are hidden inside.
The four 15 amp fuses are hidden inside the plastic container. There’s another square electrical component that you can slide off to get better access to extract the fuses.
Don’t mess with thing referred to as a “fuse block” attached to the fender under the seat. The fuses exist. They are closer than you think.
