main fuse blowing

I was riding the hawk a couple weeks ago and it just stopped running I found the 30 amp fuse in the starter relay box was bad. Replaced fuse and it was ok for awhile. Was gonna ride it to work today but fuse blew again sitting in driveway. Please help! I really like this bike but am getting tired of it always needing work.

First thing I'd look for it a bare wire shorting to frame, and check connectors. Intermittent electrical problems are a pain. gl

You didn't order a stock replacement R&R, did you?
