Pics of a Fuse Block Install on a GT

Will someone please post a pic of your fusebox installed on a new-gen GT? Sure would help to see where you are locating them.

Hey Jack, since the Painless (4 switched, 3 hot) is so large, I mounted it in front of the ABS. That shelf and side is cavernous. Note that the ground bus is under the ABS. The smaller ones (Centech, Blue Sea) can be mounted on top of the battery, or if you don't have TPM, there's a spot under the passenger pillion.

I just returned from CCR and had Cycle Gadgets preform the install of a Centech AP-1 on my GT. They placed it under the passenger pillion. I will post pics this week.

No matter how many times I see this type of thread, I always learn something new. Man! I love this board!

Question- I'm looking to install a Bluesea and thought I would run all my wires back to the fuse panel. If I do this, why do I need a ground bus?

For example, my Satellite radio is currently hooked directly to the postive and negative sides of the battery. Which pole would I then terminate to a ground bus? Again, please forgive my ignorance. A mechanic or electrical tech I am not.

Just ONE fuseblock? . . . uh ah!

I have a 6-circuit (always HOT) BUSS fuseblock close to where Griffina put her Painless block. It's for all those devices that I want to be HOT all of the time. (i.e. GPS, cellphone charger, intercom, Valentine One and it's remote audio device.) I have 2 spare circuits on there yet.

I also have a relay-controlled Cintech AP-1 under the pillion seat. It's for my MotoLights, air-compressor, and the passenger's heated-gear port. I trigger that relay with the low-beam lead, so that fuseblock isn't HOT until after the bike is running. There's 3 more circuits leftover on there for future use.

Aside from that, I have my fused Gerbing's connector wired straight to the battery. And I have a fused female powerlet port wired straight to the battery. I use that for my Battery Tender, or powering my ICOM or iPod off the bike when needed.

I'll show you all this stuff when I get down there to get my seats done.

The positive lead of any device runs through a fuseblock circuit. The negative lead, to the ground buss. And the ground buss should be connected directly to the negative pole on the battery. Do not use any other grounding location.

And, the Centech and BlueSea has the ground bus already in place. Along with connecting to the ground of the battery, you should use, at least, a 35 amp circuit breaker or fuse on the hot side as close to the positive battery cable as possible. She likes the circuit breaker type as they'll reset, as opposed to a fusible link or fuse, if you're in BFE.

OK, and while we're waiting at my house for him to finish your seat, we'll use that 3-4 hours to put 2 fuseblocks on my GT!!! He he

With pic's like that, Grifmiester, even an idiot like me can't screw it up!

My TouraTech setup, easy to get to. Single 15A fuse, works well for all electronics in pics, and my Pro1 Intercom, which is under left side panel.

GPS is wired direct for obvious reasons.

Other than that, it's a nice install.

The problem there is if the bike is bought by one of our own.
