    Yesterday, Oscar had an electrical power failure about a mile from home, so I had to hold the compression release in constantly while I walked him home.

    Boy, was my left thumb sore after that! Next time, I'll just peel the rear belt off and pedal him home like a bicycle.

    Anyway, the main fuse was blown, which was a 5 amp. The Whizzer Service Manual Electrical Schematic Diagram shows a 7-Amp fuse, but it shows turn signals installed, which I don't have. Should I go for a 7-amp fuse?

    Hi Hal,
    You should replace with a 7 amp. A common problem is the fuse holder. I had one Whizzer that continued to blow fuses, and spent a lot of time troubleshooting the problem and it ended up being the poor quality clips in the plastic holder. Replace it with a holder that screws together as opposed to the original unit. I was a lot happier knowing the better fuse holder was less likely to produce "sparks" directly under the gas tank.

    Have fun,

    HEY QUENTON: 7 amps? Will do!

    (I have a 10-amp, but that would allow an overload current to flow before blowing)

    That's right Hal
    You don't want to cook your wiring especially under the gas tank.
