Default Electrical fault

Morning all
I`m new to the forums so hope i`m posting this in the right place!

My CBR600F-W 98 keeps on blowing the 15amp fuse and has a loud clicking noise coming from behind the dials. I replaced the indicator relay (which i was informed would be the likely issue) but that hasn`t cured the problem. The sound has changed from a loud clicking to a loud "quacking" noise and seems to be coming from behind the rev counter/speedo.
The bike starts fine and all the lights, indicators and horn are working (until the fuse blows) but i can`t shift this noise or stop the fuse from blowing.

I disconnected the leads behind the headlight one at a time to see which one might be causing the problem, and the noise stops when i disconnect the 9 pin plug. Not sure what that controls, i just know it stops the noise when its unplugged.

Any ideas?

Can you identify the connector in this photo?

It`s the black 9 pin plug, 3rd from left.

Been told it could be something simple like the side light bulb being blown, something i didn`t check. Will have a look next chance i get.

Yes that 9 pin is for front lights, indicators Horn and clutch switch chances are there's a crossover and blowing fuse, try taking off the horn and see if it still happens

Solved.

Got the bike out for a proper look and found a few chaffed wires in the loom that were shorting out on the frame. All fixed and sorted.
Cheers for the help!
