Anyone hook a general purpose fuse box up to the 12's battery to plug in farkles, USB's LED's without the CAN-Bus getting all pissy. Recommendations?
Auto parts stores carry them, here's one at Autozone:I also note that the Fuzeblock blithely wants you to install an "inline fuse' along the positive terminal. . .uh, where does one get those and how does it connect into the Fuzeblock. Also, if I remove my battery cable to install it, does that weird out the storage for various things on the R's computer?
That actually looks REALLY useful!. . .going to have to read up on it. Anybody have one or contemplating one? It probably doesn't even need a fooberator. . ..Hey drDave, just a thought... Have you considered a Power Distribution Module?
It does NOT have fuses & relay to fuss with.

Just thought it may be an option for you.

Awesome Web. Thanks! I think I'm going to spring for the fuseless box.Depends on where you want to install the fuse box. If toward the back of the bike, I'd use the switched wire on the tail light or on the diagnostic port -- it's the barrel-shaped connector with a twist-off cap that you plug a GS911 into for diagnostic readings, resetting service reminders, and other maintenance DIY work. You're looking for a green-and-blue or a green-and-white striped wire -- that's the switched one on my '09. Might be different on your camhead. You don't want to connect to a red wire (hot all the time) or brown (ground).
If you're installing toward the front, the parking light wire is switched, but it's more difficult to access. And, of course, there's the infamous GPS connector.
Have had good luck w/Posi-tap connectors. Customer Installation- Posi-Tap Instructions. Easy to use and fairly non-destructive.
I have no experience with the PC-8, but did buy a single-circuit relay from EB a few years ago to run my heated liner. Had some satisfying email with Jim as well. I like his approach, and I like his stuff.I'm liking the Eastern Beaver PC-8. Anyone have any experience with it?
