NC50 Battery - To fuse or not to fuse

Jay Krawchuk /

Just finishing up restoring 2 - 1978 Honda NC50s and am installing new batteries. There is no fuse off the battery but I have noticed a few people put them in. My dilemma is that if the fuse blows while running, the battery is disconnected from the circuit, so no voltage regulation, and blows all the lights.

Just seems wrong not having some sort of protective circuit there (my electrical safety senses tingling)

couldn't you stage higher amp fuse to the lights also? i wouldnt though cuz why complicate somethin simple?
