10a fuse to 20a

I blew about 4 fuses trying to install my new turn signals. some were 10s and some were 20s. im about to go purchase some soon and was wondering if i can get 20s to replace the 10s or the 10s so low to protect whatever its connected to?

Stick to the original fuse ratings. Higher amperages would posibbly require heavier gauge wiring to avoid overheating the wiring and causing a fire.

If your blowing fuses, you might want to check your wiring.
I had this problem too and found that the problem was cause by a bare wire touching a ground.

i know why i blew them, i didnt have any of the wires taped up and they would touch metal. everything is put back together now and works fine. i guess ill wait till my bike catches fire to switch back to 10s

no, i couldnt. i had to determine what wires connected to what. these turn sigs came from italy and italians do a $hitty job when it comes to making wiring diagrams.
