My 5amp accessory fuse blew and I replaced it with the spare that's located under the fuse box cover. I'm now uncomfortable not having a backup and was wondering if Walmart or Pep Boys carry the type the goldwings use or do I have to go to a Honda shop to get one?

I just bought some spare fuses myself at Pep Boys. They had a whole selection of mini fuses from 2 amp to 30 amp. I paid $3.19 for pack of the mini 5 amp fuses, six in a pack.

Thank you both very much! My first adventure with changing fuses on a motorcycle in all my years of riding...

PS: You can use the mini's in the maxi slots, just twist the blades slightly. You can't use the maxi's in the mini tho, obviously.

Just as another note. You have TONS of storage space on the wing. Carry several of each fuse with you at all times. When you have a short, you're going to go thru fuses really quickly until you can find the gremlin.

WaytekWire has some ATM fuses (as the wing uses) that have LEDs in the back end of them = if one blows, it light up and tells you it is shot. Kind of cute - for those that have to have all the odd stuff stuck on the bike. I replaced all of mine with them, but I am gadget happy....... :roll:
