Main power to the fuse box, 10-12ga, everything else I use 14ga.

Jim

PS I didn't have any 10-12ga so I used two 14ga once. Not ideal, but it works.

all depends on what your running and how long the wire is, there are some nice wire sizing charts out there

there is a chart half way down this page that may help you

Question details details

I bought the Fuzeblock, now....is that another relay or a fuse between the block and the battery on the positive side?
How did you mount it exactly?
It appears you made an aluminum plate and velcro'd or screwed it to the airbox?

What sort of/size fasteners did you use to mount the box to the plate?
No fasteners came with the FuzeBlock...

That's a big fuse to protect the fuzeblock. It may be overkill but it protects the whole unit.

I traced the unit onto aluminum sheet and added a tab to attach to the screw on the bottom of the T. The tab on the right attaches to the right side of the T with two sided tape and the zip tie from the big fuse.


I bought tapered screws and mounted the unit to the sheet thru the holes provided. I also put some two sided tape on the T to stick to the plate.

I had to dremel a tiny bit off one of the fins under the seat.

Got it, where does the big bolt hole bolt onto? Battery strap hole on the airbox?
How big is the big fuse (amps)?
Also, which wire did yo tap into for the 'switch' wire?

Yes, battery strap hole.
I think 25 or 30amps.
I bought a parking light switched power adapter to get my switched power. Clean and no messing with the wiring harness.

Centech AP-2

I used a centech ap-2 so I could charge my battery via a unswitched lead and still have switched leads for my other accesories. I wired a powerlett female unswitched to the front left panel to allow charging of the battery and running of high load electric jacket. Then ran a switched circuit to the powerlett on the RH panel, ran a extension off of that to a terminal block up front , all of this is run through a noise filter and all electronics (audio) run off this circuit.

A work of anal retentive art.

I did the tool tray, but mine looks more like a bowl of spaghetti (works, though).

It makes sense to use them for all fuse box connections, but what about when u need to double up on circuits?

The connectors are available here. http://www.sherco-auto.com/cg.htm

I'm not sure what you mean by your question. If I put more than one device on a fuse, I just run a seperate pair of wires from the centec to the device. The wiring is done pretty much like the wiring diagram. Clarify your question and I'll try to provide a better answer.

One man's definitiona of "anal retentive art" is another man's "obsessive compusive attempt that could have been better".

for example On slot 3 I have my voltmeter and my underglow led kit.
On slot 5 I have my heated seats and my license plate lights etc..

I will just run two wires to the one terminal on the fusebox and use the female connectors.

I also orders tons of protective sheating. I have a scary jungle down there. looks like a crackwhores pubes. I must dare to sort it out!
