Twisted Throttle Power Hub Auxiliary Motorcycle Fuse Block

We've updated the PowerHUb to a new model and naturally updated the name as well to the PowerHub2. We have looked at the design or the original PowerHub and decided to make a few changes to make it more water resistant, easier to install (less space), lower profile, and make the relay replaceable. We also found from using it on our bikes that needing tools (screw driver) to open the unit to change a fuse made little sense so there was an update there as well. Here is the end result:



All of the wires now get routed into one side of the unit so that you can nestle it into tighter spaces. The positive and negative wires are a beefier 10 gauge wire with a high strand count to make it more pliable. This aids with the installation.



As you can see the relay replaceable and allows you to hook up items on a Can-bus bike.




Tthe rubber bands that hold the lid into place. No need for tools to access the fuses. They remind me of O rings. They are quite stout and sturdy.



Complete installation instructions and supplies included. We also did not terminate the positive and negative leads so that you can run the wires more easily and trim to length. The ring terminal for that battery are included as well.

Here is an overview video for you to share with others: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTLNK...A30Q6iwDKpBOLA

That looks really familar. Is it a private-label Fuzeblock?

The original POwerHub was made by Fuzeblock. Twisted recognized the quality of that product and partnered with Fuzeblock to bring it to you guys.

We are constructing the new PowerHub2 ourselves here in America with as many American components as are available.

Are you going to offer a wiring kit for the fuse block with posi-lock connectors?

If you buy it from us you will pay the same price as if you went to the manufacturer. What you do get it our well documented customer service and tech support. Another bonus is that we are working on a few complimentary products to add to the mix. - more to follow on that.

I see your price is listed as $115, and the original still sells for $84. What gives?

I have read that the lid does not sit flush when fuses are installed from a Review on the twisted site. Has this been proven to be an issue / has it been resolved?

Several fuses in mine and it closes with no issue. My only gripe is that the hole to run your power wires into the unit is very small and really limits the number of circuits especially since it comes with 3 wires already in it. I really do not see how in the hell they expect you to be able to get 12 more wires into that hole.

12 wires

if you have 6 circuits, why 12 wires? Can't you ground at the horn/light?

I bought this and although it works, it's a sub-par product, especially for the price.

Can you explain your opinion. I was looking at this and would appreciate details. Thanks

At one time this was an issue. This has been corrected for some time now.
