The factory "mini" fuse is pretty awful about heat damage. My ordeal chronicled here:

Thanks docc I was thinking it was a stand alone fuse, its in the fuse block. Then it all looks good.

I really love your 30 amp circuit breaker solution. When I re-wire the bike this winter with an m-unit, I will totally steal this idea for the one and only fuse that will still be needed for the charging circuit.

One idea is to drill ventilation holes into the lid. Sometimes these fuse boxes can retain a lot of heat and that can lead to issues. In my semi truck, I routed the passenger A/C duct to blow right across my huge fuse panel. Haven’t had any problems in a good long while.

Yeah, I even tried running with the fuse block lid off. No joy. That is a hard area to ventilate on the V11 without flowing in road-crap and weather-scuz.  :bbblll:

Honda VFR guys learned to use computer hard-drive fans to cool their regulators. Is that what we have come to? :nerd:

Turn the left side of the V11 into a Testarossa, of sorts?

Or just go total Jim Hall/ Chapparal . . .

Those were awesome! Mechanical downforce! It’s a tight package.. best you can do is make sure the contacts are clean and tight. I bought circuit breakers to replace the fuses so in case something goes south you have the ability to at least get to a safe area.

Messing around on the side of any road is dangerous business. Trust me on that.
