Decided to finally do my wiring right and install a fuse block. I chose the Eastern Beaver PC-8 fuse block.
It has 2 unstitched (always got) circuits and 6 switched (keyed hot) circuits. I pulled a "signal power" wire from the rear accessory circuit by the tail light to a 40A relay. The relay then feeds battery power through a 30A fuse to the fuse block. This feeds the 6 switched circuits.
A second feed runs from the battery through a 15A (will change to a 20A fuse when I pick one up) fuse to the fuse block. This feeds the 2 unswitched circuits. I mounted the PC-8 using 3M Dual Lock.
The circuits currently in use are:
- #8 - Powerlet socket on the passenger peg hanger. Used for battery tender and mini air compressor.
- #2 - Datel voltmeter
- #1 - SAE extension cable that runs to inside of left fairing. Used for Powerlet tank bag kit. Powers the inside of my tank bag to charge phones on the go, as well as powering my Warm N Safe heat troller for heated jacket liner / gloves.
The Power Commander used to occupy the space the PC-8 sits in now, so I mounted it to the cover of the PC-8 using 3M Dual Lock.
The open bay next to the battery where the exhaust servo used to be, now holds a Motopumps Air Shot mini compressor.
Not at all hard to do. See my post in the thread below for pic and info on the rear acc circuit I used for the "signal power" to the relay. Ping me if you got any more questions and I'll be glad to help.
