Here's my story in case this ever happens to you. My Boulevard just turned 60,000 miles of flawless riding and WHAM... dead! ALL electrical failed, speedo froze at 60 mph etc. Coasted to safe pull over spot and heavy "burned electrical" smell was in the air. Pulled the seat off and found main 30 amp fuse blown. A spare fuse is in a holder right next to it (thank you Suzuki) but first to find out what dead short would cause it to blow. Found voltage regulator / rectifier unit still smoking and burned a quarter sized hole in the back of the "black epoxy" stuff along with 2 wires melted in the harness. No warning at all...utcold: I'm replacing it with an aftermarket MOSFET type vice OEM.
