Not a blown fuse, what could it be?

I was installing an integrated tail light and the wires seem to have touched together and shorted the bike. There is power to the bike and it primes etc, however the instrument cluster and horn do not not show any power whatsoever. I have checked the fuses and the 30a fuse, which all seem to be fine. However I did hear a pop which sounded characteristically like a fuse... Any suggestions what to check?

Measure the fuses with a meter, don't go by sight.

Oh crap, I might have done the same thing last night. Didn't have time to investigate cuz I also killed my battery.

Let me know if you figure out which fuse went out.

Good luck

Turned out to be the second to last fuse (Horn, ilum etc) that had blown. But was not visibly blown. Had to test it with the voltmeter. One of the red (10a) fuses from memory

Hope it is the same for you!
