Folks

I have an '07 Brutale. Yesterday, on a 200 mile ride, the "charge" light came on and eventually the battery went flat. I bought a new battery (and yes, I did connect it the right way round! :) ), but...

Every time I start the bike, the "recharge fuse" blows, and the alternator goes offline. From reading the other posts here, the recharge fuse on others' bikes seems to be 30 or 40 amps - but mine's only a 10amp fuse.

So - my questions are:

- Where is the diode located on the '07 Brutale?
- Can I safely substitute a 30 or 40 amp fuse into the Recharge Fuse socket?

I have the battery on charge right now, to make sure it's 100% before I fiddle any further.

Thanks in advance for any help!

The diode is shrinkwrapped in the harness, not too hard to find.
Um - I've had a good look at the wiring, but I can't see it... :)

Any chance of a pic? Thanks in advance!

It is supposed to be a 40 amp fuse, who put in a 10?
It came from the factory like that. The spare is also a 10.

Having said all that, I took out - cleaned - and replaced the relay. I put in a 30amp fuse, and - cross fingers - all seems fine!

Thanks for the help!
