Default 40 Amp Breaker Very Sad - OEM is a JUNKER.

A few days ago I did a complete spray down of the bike. Nothing very crazy and time consuming either. It hasn't really seen any rain this year thanks to good weather. Most of the time it gets a quick fairing clean every few days if the bugs pile up and Lately with 85 degrees I have been washing it off less. So far this year I have had two instances of engine running problems. That turned out to not be a problem.... Hit some fast bumps/ holes in the dark and engine light popped on a few second and went away. I dismissed it as battery. Ordered and planned the circuit breaker upgrade. Last night engine light came on a few seconds and went away. No other symptoms.

So tonight was the night. Found water inside this POS and starting to accumulate around the connection. Watched Pauls video about sealing the new Buss and all done. Less than 7k miles on this part and its trapping water like a sponge.
Very Disappointed that I had to waste my time doing this polaris.

See this thread for all things 40 amp. I got mine from Napa. The replacement that pple tout is made by the same company. Its all metal shell vs plastic. What I did with my spare:

-used ge marine silicone to form a seal between the metal top and casing. This silicone is thinner and flows nicely then hardens like a plastic shell.
-took electricians tape and wrapped it between the lugs 4 or 5 times to ensure the top can't separate from the casing
-threw it in my bag until I need it.

A few notes:

I avoid riding in rain like the plague. Not because of this. Because of my E3s and I just don't like it.

All washing on my bike is by hand. There's lots more places water can get into on a bike than just this that can cause problems. I can hand wash and dry my bike in a hour a couple of times a month. Good enough😁

Rain happens. I like the idea of prepping one and keeping on hand. I still need to make up a small toolkit for the bike.

The Buss Fuse was hanging on the wall at NAPA.

Cool Posting to the 40 Amp thread

Just stumbled across this thread. Since I on my second Victory, my first being a 2003 V92 Classic, my current one is a 2012 HighBall, I'm all about preventative maintenance.

So my question to the group is since I have a 106 and it's currently right at 30000 miles.

I have ridden in the rain, and believe me it's been quite hot here in Houston, TX on the Gulf coast this summer, AND I do wash my bike and sometimes lightly spray it off with a garden hose before hand drying, all of the parameters for this 40 A failure as mentioned up above.

For the past four years, I've carried a clutch cable up to the Hill Country to the Twisted Sisters, just in case the cable were to snap. I've only had one snap down on the bead at the clutch on the 2003 V92, and once on the bead the clutch lever on the HighBall. I think what's made this last cable last longer, is making sure there some lithium grease now added on both ends every time I do my oil change every 3K miles. This has probably reduced that chance of water collecting near the beaded endpoints and affecting those strands where the bead is pressed on to them. Before the Hill Country trip this year I purchased A Magnum Black Pearl clutch cable from WitchDoctors. Have installed it yet because the other one shows no sign of wear and tear. Just this past month I replaced my battery on the HighBall since it sounded like I wasn't getting the cranking power out of the battery. I checked with a local franchise company/online here in Texas called Battery Plus+. The battery that I had replaced the factory battery was a Duralast I think I had purchased from AutoZone or OReilly. I figured well, it's been two years most likely time to change the battery. This Duracell I picked up Duracell Ultra 20HL-BS AGM Black Case, boasted 310 cold cranking amps. Most of the batteries I had seen at OReilly and AutoZone were around 120-150 CCA. I tell ya, I put that battery in and turned the bike over and wow amazing starting power. Oh, and BTW, that old Durlast I pulled out that I thought was somewhere around 2 years old was in fact put in back in Oct 2014, so I def got my money's worth outta that bad boy!

That all being said, sounds like this part should be something well worth carrying in my toolkit as well, just in case.

Courts just ruled to make Harley PAY on the appeal. Now I see HD riders are changing this for a fuze instead..... and have a better bike after doing it. WTH?
