Tail light and license plate fuse

Hi,
Just new to the forum.
I have a pearl white z650 and been starting to do some minor modifications on the esthetics.

Here's my question/problem, when I was doing a mockup of my new tail tidy setup, I short circuited the cables for the license plate light and I think I have blown a fuse cuz neither the licence plate light, tail light, brake light or horn is now working. I have been looking around for the fuse but I cannot locate it the bike and my manual doesn't mention it (manual is Thai and I don't know how to read it).
Can someone please help me locate the fuse for the lights?

Happy riding!

Under the left side, front plastics, next to the ignition switch. The fuse box is there. Watch the first part of my tank removal video, or the LED light kit install, and you will see where they are located.

Tip for the plastic push rivets; you can push the center lock button in to release them and remove them from the fairings.

Thank you Tremonte and Geno Horri for the quick answers, I found it after following the video, even though i wonder how you got out the push rivets so easily

I replaced the fuse with one of the spares and tail light is back on. How ever a new problem has surfaced; the hazard is not working anymore, it flashes once (all four indicators and the display), then stops straight away and none of the indicators will work unless i shut off the bike and then put on the ignition without touching the hazard button.

I just installed LED indicators with 25W 8.2ohm resistors connected to each and everyone and there is no hyper flash, but still the hazard wont work. Any idea why?

You may have shorted the flasher relay as well. It should be located around the same area as the fuse box.

Turn signal flasher relay is located on the right side, just forward of the gas tank, above the rectifier/regulator. Remove the right middle fairing to access.

Definitely sounds like the relay is shot. That's kinda frustrating huh?
