Had Mike Goff install a fuse block (not sure which brand) prior to farkling up the GSA. It's real smart to have the fuse block switch off with the ignition to avoid current leaks with added electrics. Just run your battery tender conn directly from the battery. Charges better that way.

I use the Touratech fuse block thing and have converted my additional outlet to direct to battery so that I can run heated gear or a pump. Works fine for me.

Edit: meant to quote pictures of your bike but you get the idear.

Hawt!

Remember to use rubber washers under your regular washers on the top case. That should keep things waterproofish. BTW it WILL crack and come off in a high side. :

On a side note I see AutoZone is selling universal marine grade kill switches now... Schizz?
