Sure but why then has it not happened since I stopped locking the steering head?

Locking the steering head pushes it all the way to one side. What if you don't lock it, but keep it turned all the way left?

I agree with kuksol, this is the place to start.

Also - what if you turn the ignition to lock and don't turn it to the left? I think you can do this. I hesitate to say anything with certainty regarding electrics, but it seems it's either in the wiring harness leading to the headlight/handlebar area, or the ignition barrel. Can you get VOM meter in there and probe to see of things change as you turn the bars, or engage the lock.

Did this all begin after they wired in the canbus filter? If so, that's where I'd look very carefully. Somewhere in my lizard brain I remember mention of issues with poorly installed filters.

For as long as I don't lock it, no problem, must have something internal to the ignition shorting and when the pin goes into the head, it shorts...I haven't locked the head since and I haven't blown a fuse since, I mean for months now...
