I have fitted an Eastern Beaver headlight HP4 circuit to my DL650 and connected it via a PC8 fuse block switched circuit with a 20A fuse.
Today I noticed the positive wire has been overheating, ( the insulation is melting on the wire and the PC8 terminal plastic has melted ) but the 20A fuse is intact.
OK brains trust what is going on here? Should I have connected the headlight circuit direct to the battery?
I just checked the instructions on EB's site; I should have checked this before. It seems that I should have connected to the battery terminals . Is it me or is the EB website a little confusing at times; written by a guy who knows his stuff, but knowledge base far in advance of his clients ( well me in particular)
It looks as if I have a self -made PC7 fuse block.
PC8 fuse box, EB headlight mod, Givi engine bars , Enduro Guardian radiator guard, B&B sump guard, MotoBrizz chain oiler, ATV high bars , (heated grips, EB ABS off switch, USB and cigarette plug mounted on Adventure Tech dashboard), Mitas E07 tyres, Bark Busters and Storm guards, Galfer braided SS brake line 2 inch extension, Cogent DDC fork emulators and .85 Kg straight wound springs.
