I made a shelf in the tray to hold the Autocom up and was able to fit the
Centech on the bottom. The XM is velcroed to the top. The Centech relay
is under the tray and the PIAA relays are on the side of the airbox.

Here's a link to More Pictures.

Why not?

Its a commonly available Potter & Brumfield T9AS1D12-12 relay....and you can get it from Mouser Electronics for a whopping $3.47.

How many do you want?

Hell, you need a screw driver just to get to the fuses if you need to replace one under driving rain...which is always the case.

Nit picking tonight Alex?

Actually, IIRC the relay isn't a plug and play, it is a part of the unit, though I may be wrong.

No, just posting accurate information.

The relay can be soldered in...it is a PC mount type.

And you'd have to carry a relay along if it was replaceable on the fly.

Let me guess, you carry spare injectors and a Motronic?

OK, so soldering is a "normal" job for the average backyard mechanic. Of course you are certain it is not potted, right?

Thanks for clearing that up!

There, another reason for you to make a video..."How to Solder - Soldering Techniques by the Master", by JVB. I want 50% of the profits.

Quite...in clear view...




Its a nifty little unit, but it has some drawbacks:
1) current limitation for some users,
2) I need a screwdriver to get to the fuses,
3) the back may not be insulated for an install against a metal plate,
4) the price.

Hmmmm, clear view of what? I see the top, how about a back view to see if the soldering is sealed?

Really, I couldn't care less, but your sanctominious attitude really pushes my buttons.

Edit, not worth it.

Looks like a nice unit, ease of wiring, spare fuse holder (2) and, if the relay
did go (which, I have never had happen on anything) all you have to do
is move the fuses to the constant side.

They all are, but I prefer a terminal lug to stranded wires in a barrel.

If I did go with that unit one day, I'll be using ferrules.

I used to use them when wiring Weidmüller components and that is what you used when working with stranded wire.

Yes, after getting a screwdriver out to remove the cover. The designer should have used banana plugs to make the cover a friction fit. Just an idea.

The back is not insulated, but it comes with a protection plate. You need to provide the appropriate machine screws.

This image shows the protection plate mounted to the Fuzeblock.


And this image shows where it wound up on my bike. The cable tie holds it to the battery mounting strap.


More info on my installation at http://www.snafu.org/pics/r1200gs/2009/0204-fuzebox/

I have to anyways with the Centech 'cause I drop the fuse in the slot and can't get it out with my fingers. Just put a piece of chewing gum on the relay to hold the cover in place (or velcro).
