Power board

Postby seeberluca » Thu Jan 03, 2013 3:09 am



Hi ,
I'm 100% sure that our wingadmin posted a topic related to an additional power board for the gl 1500.
Can someone tell me where this post is? I am going crazy looking for him :?
Thanks in advance

I've got one of those from Electrical Connection. Great item.

The only thing it is lacking is a ground bus for all the returns. I made my own (well, I cut up a terminal strip and created one from it), with a 12-gauge wire going to the battery negative terminal.

I did the same like you copying the idea from electrical connection . Quite sure they have copied from you :D there is only one wingadmin and you " belong to us" :lol: :lol:

The only different thing is the wire I used: a 6-gauge wire going to the battery: do you think it is enough? 12 sounds huge :o

I have a doubt: are you talking about some american standard for the wire size ? :oops:

Remember - the lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire. On our bikes, 6 gauge wire is massive overkill - it's capable of carrying over 200 amps! At the length involved in my installation (a few inches), 12 gauge is good for 100 amps, still far more than it will ever see, particularly being that the alternator is only capable of producing 90 amps!

You are right but you are talking about the Awg standard I realized it now. I am using the mm so 12 are not 12 mm but after the conversion they are around 2
