I will be using no more than three items drawing power consisting of a gps unit, a cell phone charger and an mp3 charger. Is it worth installing the fuzeblock or skip it? The tank bag that I've got has two power supply outlets which I would use to take care of the phone and mp3 so I would only be wiring 2 plugs. Your thoughts?

Might add a 4th power accessory??

Small electric tire pump?? You never know when you might need one. (I know the other 2-3 items would not be "on" while the pump is in use, so amperage-wise, you should be OK with whatever you add for the other 3)

I have the tire pump but it's got alligator clips and if I am using it the other things will either be off or unplugged.

There's never any shortage of useful info here! I wish that I had seen that a few days ago.

You might as well install the PC-8. You say you only need 3 circuits...but that'll change.

Aux lights, heated grips, frappachino machine...it'll come.

I do love me some coffee. Since I work on big ships when I'm home riding is strictly something done for fun or errands, with that in mind I doubt that heated gear will really be required. I do like toys though.

Sure is easier to put it in and be ready for "what ifs" in the future, instead of trying to rewire stuff later on.

Another reason for the fuse block

An unswitched fused circuit (wit an on-off switch) can be really handy for using or charging your toys without having to turn on the key and leave it in the bike.
