Need Help, electrical, What are these?

Post by GlassDC2B » Fri Apr 06, 2018 9:16 am



I Just purchased a 1990 Honda Goldwing GL1500 SE (My second One), I found these 2 blocks on my bike and I was wondering what they are called and if anyone by chance has a schematic for them or knows what the pin out for these are. I have tried running searched for relays in this forum as well as fuse block and I have yet to come back with an answer. I have also done a Google and Bing search and each time I get results for either the Flasher relay the Starter relay or the Omron Relay. Any help would be great even if someone has a link that they can share with me.

Im looking for information on both the small one and the larger one.

Thank you in advance.

There may be a id on the other side but just by the wiring configuration,I'll guess.
The large one is a power distribution block.Possibly accessory controlled switched.
The smaller one appears to have wiring for a lamp flasher.Headlight or brake lamp.
There not OEM.

At least it appears fused. It would be interesting to see what it looks like on the underside. Definitely looks like a home-made power distribution strip.

The underside is not solid, their is no openings or any other sort of access ports. Also their are no tags or markings on it at all.

They appear to be potted from the view that is presented to us.

The right side, larger one, is definitely a fused power distribution block, and good to keep.

The other one, most likely is a Flasher Module for the rear brake lights.
Probably out of production years ago

Looks like others have it figured out correctly' What seemed strange to me was the use of, what looked to be, 7.5 amp fuses. Don't think I have ever seen that ampere fuses before.

What does the wiring connect to? BTW Semper Fi! Are those really 7.5 amp fuses?
