Default 40a pile of ****

Amazing it didn't give me any trouble but, by the looks of it, it was just a matter of time. I'm guessing the right hand BATT terminal "was" copper washed over steel because of the rust. Why the hell would they use something like this?? I replaced it with a NAPA 40a that I silicone sealed.

The brass screw goes towards the rear of the bike. If I recall (remember I'm over 80) the battery + lead went onto the silver one.

The rusted (copper??) did go to the rear and I did the same with the NAPA. The nuts on the NAPA breaker are serrated so they bite. I snugged them down pretty good and also used the OEM nylock nuts, double nutting the terminals.

yup the OEm ones are garbage. I had to replace mine. Thank god it happened in my driveway and not out on the road. I carry a spare with me now.

Ok VJ is right..... what happened with my bike is that is was running and then just quit. Wait a few minutes and started it, then it quit again. I then turned on the key switch and waited. the lights went off, then on. This 40 amp circuit breaker is self reset-able. Meaning that when the condition that caused it , goes away, it resets. Hence the on/off on my bike. Sometimes these never reset because they are garbage. I don't know the part number off hand but I got mine at NAPA. I also put a coating of dielectric grease on the contacts and around the top of the breakers where plastic and metal meet

Everything shuts down the instant the breaker trips. Even the needles in the speedo and tach freeze where they were. Nothing works.

Okay for those of us still not knowing this part...

Where is it and does it fail often?
