Fuse blowing!

My side light fuse will blow after a few miles, this then takes out the instrument lights which has their own fuse and this is fine. I have checked switch & its like new inside, changed side light bulb not that it needed changing and still the fuse goes. Any ideas please?

Short to ground in the wiring to the "side lights" (not sure which lights you are referring to) would be the first thing I would check. Trace the wiring from the switch to the light and look for abrasion of the insulation allowing a short? Good luck. Electrical gremlins stink big time.
