i haven't had a chance to inspect it since i got back from the ride but i will check it out. I guess i'm more worried that it could be something else that will strand me. thanks for the input guys.

Could be the fuse itself has cracked or something, so it needs to be held in place.

Or the little clips/contacts that the fuse blades engage with have a problem.

Try troubleshooting it with a brand new fuse, see if it wiggles.

I've got a '99 M750 that loves to rattle the battery connectiongs & the like loose. Runs fine, turn it off & on occasion, you have to raise the tank & tighten everything back up ~

starting problem and did my foam earplug really fix it?

After 1/2 hour of riding i stopped and shut off my bike to open a couple of vents on my jacket. When i tried to start it back up the headlight came on but the fuel pump did not buzz and the starter would not turn. I hit the starter button a couple more times and still nothing.
I checked my fuses to see if one had gotten loose and the 30 amp blue fuse seemed to have a bit of a wriggle to it compared to the others so i pushed it down and hit the starter button and it started right up.
I always carry an extra set of the disposable earplugs with me so i carefully put one on top of the fuse and put the top of the fuse box back on and rode the bike another 80 miles with 2 stops and restarts and everything appeared to be fine .
Now i'm not sure if this was the actual problem or could it be something else that will really leave me stranded. Has anyone had this problem before ? The bike is a 00 900 S model with Original battery , starter , etc.
