Help- Fuse Block Issue
So, I dumped the 06 KLR and got wedged between a rock and a tree. It crushed the rear fender and damaged the tailight. When I got back to camp I found the taillight bulb flying loose in the taillight lens and the fuse for the 10 amp headlight and tailight was blown. I replaced the fuse, added dialectic grease to all connections, and put a new 1157 taillight bulb in the tail socket. All function to the lights returned, however, I noticed heat coming off the stock fuse box and wires. Is it normal for the lighting wires to warm up while the lights are on, or is something else going on like a dead short somewhere? I've never put my hand on the fuse box with the lights on before, so I don't know what normal is. Any guidance would be appreciated. Also the bike's equipment is all stock, no aftermarket electrical parts added.
