Hi,

I recently picked up eastern beaver's PC-8 fuse block and the switched headlight wiring harness. I'm going to install them today and when i pulled the seat off, i discovered this guy:



the only thing i can think it might be aftermarket is part of the grip warmers? anyone seen this thing before? It does not hook directly to the battery, but instead both the black/red and white/blue wires run up under the tank to the front.. I am guessing that one set goes to an ignition hot and the other set to the controller. I can take the tank off and check them, if needed.

thanks in advance,

- Jared

That's is indeed a Warm and Safe Heat-troller module. R/B goes to power, W/Bl goes to the heated gear and the large black cable goes to the controller potentiometer knob. The power lead likely goes to the OEM heated grip connector behind the radiator.

You can neaten the wiring and power it from the switched part of the fuse block.

With every connection involved being in the front of the bike, I find it a little strange the thing was located so far back.

he wrapped it in electrical tape and taped it to the side of the battery, I suspect he was worried about moisture. I got nearly all of the wiring done and left a circuit open.. thinking of doing just that with the wiring, since it is currently wired to be hot all the time, and as far as I can tell there is no fuse.

Chances are it was powered as I mentioned before. If that is the case, it runs off the bike's signals fuse and is off when the ignition is off.

it may be wired similarly, but I have ran the battery dead on two occasions because i forgot to turn it off.:thumbdown:

Then it isn't run to the OEM heated grip connector and using the fuse block would be a good idea. That somebody would do an unswitched power takeoff from somewhere under the tank from a device right by the battery boggles my mind.

i guess i should be really surprised, but i used to buy old UJMs and restore then sell them.. the stuff people will do to "get on the road" :headbang:
