Default Adding an Accessory Fuse Block

I'm sure at one point or another every one of us has needed to hook up some accessory or another. To the battery or to an accessory wire? Switched power or always hot?

Have I found the PERFECT little device to do any option asked above. It's called.....wait for it. Wait for it......patience.....

The Fuzeblock. Simple name and straight to the point.

http://www.fuzeblocks.com/index.php

Image from their website:



You can read up yourself but this little baby has 3 wires going to it. Battery feed, ground, and any 12v switched wire.

You can hook up to 6 accessories. Any or all of them can be either switched power or constant. No matter which you select, the battery feeds the connected accessory directly. Meaning that the switched wire (one of the 3 wires going TO and feeding the block) is nothing more than a trigger wire so no additional load is placed on where ever you got the wire from.

Expensive? Maybe. ~$90 with shipping. But...this thing is awesome and made very very well. Solid with a quality feel and weight.

I came across it by helping a buddy work on his BMW. He bought the bike second hand so he didn't now this Fuzeblock was even there. Come to find out, all his accessories on his bike (lights, radar detector, GPS, and heated gear) was all connected neat and tidy do this block.

Rerunning my wiring is one of my ToDo plans this winter. I'm going to rerun/connect the following to this instead of how I have it now:

1) HID headlights (VictoryHID) power wire - CONSTANT
2) Garmin GPS - SWITCHED
3) Radar Detector power - SWITCHED
4) Passenger dual USB power port - CONSTANT
5) PCV and AT power wire - SWITCHED
6) Not used yet

Finding the best spot for the Block is yet to be determined. More than likely under the center console, or maybe under the seat. Not sure yet.

Anywho, when I install it, I will try and remember to take a few pictures of how/where I installed it.

I got it all done. I found a perfect place for it.

I ran a wire from the battery for the positive
I ran a ground to the same place there is a ground attached at the computer under the seat
The 12v switched wire I tied into that plug that isn't hooked to anything under the stereo.

The I drilled a hole into that plastic panel and fed all 6 power and ground wires neatly up to under the center panel in front of the seat.

I installed 2 x Dual USB ports, marine grade. One in the rear and the other into the front of the compartment left of the stereo.

I ended up attaching the Fuzeblock:

- radar detector
- PCV and AT
- rear USB
- trailer plug isolation power wire
- front USB
- not used now

It works very well where it is. The bracket/hinge for the saddle bag doesn't touch anything. It's accessible for fuse replacement or if I want to change one of the accessories from switched to constant power. It's neat and tidy.

Not as sophisticated, not as complicated, not as expensive ($10), but very effective....

I paid $9.99 for this 6 ganger somewhere else. There are also 4, 8, 10 and 12 gangers.

Yep. I can see you relayed it and all. Well done. I used that exact simple setup on my off-road 4x4 rigs. Wasn't in the mood to try and do that again on my bike though.

Mike
you know your shock opening hole. Cover it up with some duck tape it will cut down on the dirt and maybe make the seat a little cooler

I took a square piece of thick closed cell foam and cut a square hole in the center to facilitate the "hook" on the saddle pan and glued it in place over that hole. It works very well as a dirt/water/air gasket.

Also a great idea. I'll have to do something now. That means I need to clean under there first. Bummer.
