Found my Fuse problem, but how do I fix???

So ive been suffering from a faulty turn signal circuit. It seemed like since I installed my i-600 alarm I was going through a lot of fuses. The weird part was that I wasnt going through them instantly, I could go a month on a fuse and then out of nowhere it would blow. I didnt know what the heck was up, and went over all of my connections and everything looked fine.

Now, I know what is wrong.

I removed my horn with an engine swap a while ago, and I JUST noticed that when I press the button, it blows my fuse!!

But now that I know what it is, how do I go about fixing that? whats the deal???

I do, I put 20 amp ones in. youre not understanding that if I TOUCH that horn button, on accident, it blows the circuit with many many amps. I dont use the horn, its not even on my bike anymore.

After you removed the horn, what did you do with the terminal ends that normally plug into the horn? If they are in electrical contact, the circuit would basically be shorting every time you hit the horn switch.

Sounds like a ground wire issue. Trace your horn wires back.
