I have a '96 katana that I just put a new battery in. Every time I start the bike, the main fuse blows. The weird thing is that the bike will start and run. It is once I turn it off that I can't start it again and when I look at the fuse, it is blown. Any ideas? This just doesn't make sense to me.

sounds like the lead from the battery to the starter is grounding out on something. if it was fine b4 the battery install, i'd look there first for pinched or rubbing wires.

Along the lines of what sroster said......if you have a meter, measure the resistance between the positive battery cable and the negative. (battery removed)
