Other than of course this is not a fuse that your would normally expect to have to replace.  The irony is that it is located next to the battery and it doesn't tell you what to do if it's not the fuse :012: .
 
I'm with RichardCBF on this.  The issue has cropped up a few times before although I have to say that after it happened the first time on here I had a good look at my battery to see if I could connect the terminals the wrong way round and I found it close to impossible (cables insufficient length) - so how did you manage it  :187: .
 
I can't quite remember but would I be right in thinking that these fuses are only available from Honda (probably at a price  :156: ) or is it just a bog standard 30 amp spade fuse.

I've not had my bike apart to look, buy I think it's a 'standard' blade type.
See items 10 & 18 here....
10 = SWITCH ASSY., STARTER MAGNETIC (Starter solenoid relay) part number 35850-MT4-000
18 = FUSE, BLADE (30A) part number 98200-33000

Good news - bike fixed and the only damage was the fuse.

Go on then let us know, what was the total £ damage to have the dealer change a fuse.

So you guys can have a good laugh at my exense the damage was £45 for Bikermedics to collect my bike and deliver to the dealer, £33 for the dealer to diagnose problem , replace fuse, refit battery etc. and it will be about £10 for a taxi tomorrow morning to take me to the dealer so I can collect the bike.

Irritating but not excessive - lesson learned is that it would have been cheaper and easier to get the dealer to fit it in the first place.

Expensive lesson....but could have been much worse. Glad you're back on the road.

Yeh, good news, phew! Thanks for sharing as a good lesson for when I do mine soon.
Which 'dealer' did you use, e.g., HGB Ruislip or Chiswick Honda?
