Block to the Positive Battery Terminal.
Your accessory fuses will be very accessible and all in one location.
Fuse Block Location:
- You will have a lot of choices depending on your Bike
for Fuse Block location.
We have installed
Accessory Fuse Blocks just about everywhere
on motorcycles. We have a Fuse Block installed under the seat on one of our
own bikes and a Fuse Block installed up in the neck area and hidden in another
of our bikes.
In the picture below you will see a picture of a fuse block installed inside
the Right Side Cover and then inside of what used to be the factory tool box
on another of our bikes.
- You will want to make sure that the Fuse Block is
somewhat accessible. It is very desirable to be able to replace fuses
easily when you are on the road.
When choosing a location, also take into consideration the wiring runs from
the Fuse Block to your Accessories that you are installing.

Some Electrical Guidelines:
- Dressing up wires and being careful to run
them in a manner where they will be hidden and tie
wrapped properly will enhance your installation. Heat shrink to
cover up any soldered connections or to tidy up wires is the way to go.
Chrome Cable Covering will also
give you a professional custom look for any wires that are showing and not
covered up. It just
take a few minutes to plan the job and draw the wiring out.
- An inexpensive
Volt Meter or some other way to verify voltage is a must
for wiring jobs. A crimping tool and
solder gun are also needed, depending on what
direction you take. Radio Shack is the
easiest and cheapest place to pick up those items.
Soldered connections are always a better way to go when making your
splices or connections at devices.
- In most cases you will want to remove your
Gas Tank for wire routing. Refer to your manual for directions.
This usually is a fairly simply task and worth it in the long run.
- The ground wires for your accessories will be
connected to a bike ground. The ground wires do not run through the
