Checked all the wires,disconnected everything attached to loom one by one,even took whole loom off bike,put all back together,no different,still blowing 10A indicator fuse,anyone any other thoughts,getting me down now :'(

If you had all off the wires disconnected did you still have a short???

Put your meter from fuse output side down to earth so you can see the short (battery disconnected) then disconnect the browns in the headlight until the short dissapears, if you get down to the incoming brown directly from the fuse and the short is still present, its in the harness, but unless its been butchered I doubt that. Follow the diagram.

To save blowing fuses, wire a 12 volt bulb in place of the fuse, if it lights with everything turned off, it is showing the short, you need to get it off.

Finally found the problem,ended up being a faulty flasher cancel unit,it kept shorting out intermittently but finally started smoking today!   Luckily the indicators work without it as not available new anymore,thanks for the replies
