Fuse is there to keep circuit and components from burning up if the plus 12 VDc is shorted to ground. If it is repeatedly blowing a new fuse you probably have a short, often because the insulation wears thin or cracks and contacts something tied to ground. Use a DVM and trace the circuit looking for the short.

AFA your dimming lights and no lights, check the battery connections for corrosion or loose, make sure the battery ground is solid. Also could check or bring the battery into FLAPS for a load test. Bike batteries go bad with little notice.
