Ignition button blows cluster fuse **case solved **

I've got a problem with my 2007 RR. I was out riding a few days ago and all was well. We stopped for a break and then set off on our way home and I noticed that my cluster was dead - all the gauges etc. I got home and checked the fuse and sure enough it was blown. I replaced it and the cluster came to life until I hit the start button and it blew again. I then replaced the fuse with the bike running and the cluster stays working with no issues. It's only when I start the bike with the fuse in position that it blows - if I remember to pull the fuse before firing up then I'm good to go but this obviously isn't a good way forward.

The bike has no mods on it so there are no issues with dodgy home wiring or circuit overloading etc so does anybody know why the bike should have started acting in this way?

Check the ignition wires for a short. Red and red/blue wires coming from the switch.

Well, it seems the ignition button was throwing me down the wrong path! After a bit of messing today, I eventually got to the point where the fuse would blow as soon as the key was turned so this took the ignition button out of the equation. I then stripped all the fairings looking for somewhere the wire could be chaffed but found nothing. I went for a coffee and when I walked back into the garage I noticed that the tail light was off and after 30 seconds of hunting, I found that the lead was touching the exhaust and had melted. I've now repaired the wire and tucked it out of harms way and all is good again. Just a pity that the label on the fusebox says that the fuse only does the cluster. If it had said it did the tail light too, I could have saved myself a hell of a job stripping all the fairings off!
