ZX14R Taillight/horn fuse keeps blowing

Getting frsutrated with all these issues on a new bike under warranty. Can goto the dealer its covered but it takes them weeks to fix anything. The 10 amp rear brake light fuse keeps blowing so I have no taillights or horn. I replace and it blows again within secs of firing bike back up. Ideas? I do have a radar detector tapped into the brown and white hot wire at the front of the bike. Looking at the wiring dia its not really attached to this circuit. I have an after market krator taillight. Someone mentioned on another forum maybe replace with oem and see if its the taillight itself? I'll try that next. Open to any suggestions. Anyone else have this issue?

I had a tail light bulb fail and do this to me. The bulb shorted internally. Apparently regular automotive bulbs are not designed to take the vibration of a motorcycle and they can fail this way.
I'd recommend checking your bulbs.
