Two questions for the fam!

Post by Hearn660 »



1st Question can someone share the link to the topic where I might be able to replace my 55 amp dog one with a blade type 55 amp fuse for my GL1500

2nd Question Anyone in here installed a Quad Lock phone holder to their GL1500?

Also I bought a new updated Computer info center to replace the old LCD Screen and it’s really cool. I bought it off of Pierre Dal on Facebook he is the builder of the screen. I have had it installed for a few months and it hasn’t shown any signs of fault yet.

55 amp Blade fuse probably hard to find if exist at all. 60 amp will be close enough.
A local inventor has figured a way to turn a sausage grinder backward to manufacture pigs. :lol:

Re: accessory mounts for a GL1500

Post by threepwood »

I have a GL1500 too and have been trying to find out how I mount accessories (iPhone and GoPro 10) to my bike. There are plenty of you-tubers who appear to have done it, but 100% of the vloggers I've tuned into fail to show how the sort of mounts they have used, with their camera angles always been painfully too high to give you a hint.

I contacted my local Honda dealer here in Hamilton, NZ, and so far can only assume they have as much ideas as I do.

My suggestion is to figure out where to put a Ram ball and work from there. That is what I am doing. Can't remember where I saw it but someone pulled the logo out of the console and drilled his mount into that location with the thought that the logo could be replaced after if someone wanted to return it to stock. I am not too concerned with resale value but it is a good location.

Dog Bone fuse is the same for Volkswagon. Walmart started stocking them... about 4 years ago? (after I requested it)
Can parallel two 30 amp BUSS Fuses, unless you find 60A. Works fine but if one goes out the other will also.

Would that be ok or safe on a 12v motorcycle? Please forgive my ignorance as I am not all that electrical savvy.

A maxi would be fine on a bike, but beware cheap maxi fuseholders. They are often junk.
Is there any reason you need to change the dogbone holder? They typically outlast the bike.

Nosir no reason. I was just curious as the blades are easy and more readily available. I think I read a post or article where someone changed the dog one to the blade type, thought it was pretty cool. I bought two dog bones off of Cyclemax for under 6 bucks… lol thanks for keepin an eye on me Rambozo! It’s nice to know good people are still out there watchin out for other people. If you are ever in south Florida let’s go for a ride.

I am currently getting my bike ready for Sturgis. In my younger days I did Daytona and Leesburg here in Florida this will be the first big trip out of the state. Me and some Harley friends are trailering up then riding for a week. If you are up that way would love to meet other GL1500 riders.

0RAM mount makes a neat ball mount that bolts to the handle bars of Gold Wings very nicely just next to the grip on either side. I actually have one on each side of my GL 1500 SE. I have one older Lowerance GPS that leaves a trail of where I have been and sometimes I use my Garmin on the other side when traveling to give directions as to where i am going.

To whom it may concern... (NOT being Chicken Little here)

The CCC (cheap china crap) isn't worth it, unless you're looking to burn up your bike.
SERIOUSLY, I had installed the CCC fuses and those thinner blades didn't insert snugly in the OEM fusebox.
That looseness resulted in higher resistance = HEAT.
My 1991 fuse holder partially melted but was just good enough to still use.
I bought the BUSS fuses and they insert stiffly.
OK, sky's not falling . . . . yet.
