Read "Chapter" as "problem".

So I blew the ignition fuse (a 10amp) on my bike the other day, but didn't think much of it b/c it was the oldest fuse in the box, since I've blown all the other ones doing weird shit with my electrical components. But this time it blew 3 sec after starting the bike. So I switched it out with my spare (a 30amp, it's all I had) and rode my bike the rest of the with no problems; the day included a few more start ups and lots of hard riding.

That was Friday, yesterday I started the bike up, spare 30amp still in place, and began riding down my street, I turned right onto a side street and clutched in to coast to a stop sign, and my bike died; but started right back up. I got to my destination hung out then came home and replaced the Ig fuse with a new 10amp fuse and once again hit the road. Upon turning into the parking lot of the store I was going to my bike blew the Ig fuse AGAIN, while I was making the left hand turn. So I tore the seat off in frustration and once again put in the spare 30amp. I started the bike back up, shifted to first, then second to get across the parking lot, then it died again just like earlier when I was coming to the stop sign. Well I did my shopping and came back out, bike started fine and acted normal on the ride home.

I now have a 15 amp fuse in the Ig slot, and I took the bike out for a short run today, and it did give me any shenanigans. It sounds like another wiring problem but I have no idea what it would be except maybe my new starter switch?

Zoom, what do you think?

It makes life less dull when your bike always keeps you on your toes.

From your narrative, and considering the age of the bike, I'd feel you're having a ground short. Probably a wire that has worn a wee spot on an ignition wire.

Not sure, if it a constant, but it seems like the symptoms are associated with turning - as oppose to leaning/counter-steering.

It would be a bitch to examine all the wiring from the ignition, but I think that's what you might try next.
