As said, the fuse "box" is under the saddle, its an "ïn-line" item, black and sort of plastic rubbery looking flat and square'ish.
Would suggest replacing it entirely as if you are starting with problems they will continue, cause of problems on my 05, 06 and 07 0KLR's were all related to poor connectivity in the fuse box itself and lead to many hours of frustration.
Replace with "blade" type units which I purchased from my local Electronics supplier...never had a problem since changing them.
yarp. cut the crappy glass fuses out. i spent too many hours messsing around with fuses that tested good but then when you put the voltage to em and they warm up they short out. cut it out and put in mini's
I can't remember if the KLR blade fuse holder upgrade uses the small (ATM) or the larger (ATC) fuses, but it's a worthwhile upgrade for improved reliability in the fuse block.
A glass fuse can look good and be bad, and can actually test good and be bad. Rare, but it happens when the fuse element breaks at it's connection from vibration. Blade fuses are easier to install, remove and inspect than glass fuses, and are more rugged. I've never seen a blade fuse that looked or tested good and was bad.
It would be cool if you had a write-up to go with that!
I have a pretty good electronics store near me, and I had occasion to stop in there this afternoon. They had in-line blade fuse holders, but they were the type where you have to cut and splice into the harness. If you want to do this yourself and do it really cleanly, I'd recommend looking at what Eastern Beaver has.
