Electrical junction box for accessories

Post by JVRODGERS »



I would like an alternative to connecting accessories directly to the battery, lights, camera, etc. What is the best product available?

If I were installing one today, I'd probably be installing this one. However, I've never actually seen or installed one of these. What I like about it is this. Everything is housed, with no internal connectors hanging out the side. Also, it appears that double crimp connectors can be used, and those "tighten screw and crimp" type. It also houses its own relay that powers it. Many others have an external one.

FYI ... on 5th gens, there should never be more then 2 wires connected to each battery post. The 1st ones are the +/- cables. The 2nd ones are for the accessory fuse panel.

This product is exactly what I am looking for. Have you had any issues with it? Where did you find a location to connect the trigger wire?

Here is what I have. It is similar to what Greg is showing. This one was designed by a ST 1300 owner about 20 years ago. I have the trigger wire hooked up to the ACC terminal on the wing fuse block. I used mine on my ST in 04, then transferred it to the wing. Well worth the money.

Plus 1 on the Fuzeblock. Built like a hammer. Like you, I've had mine on two different bikes, and I've had mine about 8 years.
