96 Goldwing Fuse Block

Post by JohnO28 » Sat Aug 12, 2017 1:53 pm



Looking to add an aux. fuse block and if anyone has some ones they would recommend and/or to stay away from. Not looking to add anything big but some LED lights, a 12V aux port and things like that. Any input would be appreciated.

Several, including myself, have added this power plate to their bike.
WingAdmin did a review of it here.
Another has come on the market through Cyclemax (here) that looks interesting too.
You might also consider adding a ground block, like this for the negative side.

The EC power plate is OK except for the relay which is junk mine also proving defective. In any installation where the battery positive is on the right side it also forces the relay to hang upside down which doesn't help and is counter-intuitive for mounting a relay.
This is what I do

Any name brand relay from your local auto parts store will do. When my EC OEM relay did go it had only been powering the volt meter and was never used anywhere near its' rated capacity. :lol:

On my GL1500 I use the 6 fuse fuse-block by Buss. It is strapped to the battery bracket with nylon tie straps. I use a separate relay for any of the circuits that need to be switched through the ignition so the feed is live to the relay but not the component until the ignition is turned on. Such as the auxiliary lights or horn. This allows direct battery feeds to whatever I need to run when the key is off, such as my GPS.
If you need more circuits and want a relay block that has central ground built in, you can use the Buss 10 fuse panel.
As you can see, they are both reasonably priced (under $20), sell through Amazon and fit nicely under the left side panel over the battery.

If you pay more than $20 you are really paying too much.

I use these marine fuse blocks. Come in 4 - 6 - 8 gang units.

I picked up the factory fuse box from a 1984 (I think) GL1200 at a swap met for a whole $2.00. I have not added it to the bike yet, but it will either get strapped to the battery, if it fits there, or will be mounted under the seat. the one I got is a blade style fuse box , not sure if other year GL1200s used glass tube or not, and will work nice for my needs.
I plan to run the following
1) driving lights (2" round 10watt/700lumin from superbrightleds.com)
2) a LED body light kit
3) automotive style stereo amplifier
4) aux cig /usb plug for my cell phone when used as a GPS/music source
that will leave me a extra spot for _______ , if I need it.

All good options and input is greatly appreciated.. I am leaning towards this one. Thinking it might work pretty well for LED conversions.
