Electrical Help Please

I am working on a 1984 Honda 3 wheeler, and need some help. I know there is an electircal problem with the push button starter. It keeps blowing fuses. I have traced the majority of wires looking for a bad grounds, but nothing seems exposed, bare, or out of place. It runs, and will start with the pull cord, but the charging system, and lights as you run it, seems to dim. Is there a componet I am over looking, or any direction someone could give?
Thanks

Re: Electrical Help Please

I believe the battery is the right size, but I can't be 100% sure, as the old battery is gone, and I just have the replacement. Is there anything that controls the current flow when moving.

Here's more background, I replace the fuse under the seat. I can start it with the push button, rev, run the lights turn it on and off, everything works great. Take it out for a ride, and the fuse blows 2 minutes into the ride.

Any thoughts....

Re: Electrical Help Please

Thanks for reading the post, or offering words of advice.
On second inspection behind the head light, I found 2 wires with the coating ground off. After replacing and shrink tubing, she runs like a champ again.
Thanks
