I have a six circuit block under my seat with switched and constant power sections. I am going to install an Oxford handlebar power socket on the handlebars (switched power) so I don't have to worry about the 3A fuse on the dash socket. I currently have a pigtail that is under my seat for the heated gear. I take the seat off and flop it over the rail when it is cold, but want a cleaner solution.
I am doing another Iron Butt next year and will likely have a phone, GPS, and radar detector mounted on the bars so I need some more juice up there.
because heated grips can be had as a factory accessory, there is an unused plug in the wire harness for just that purposeIf I ever bother to install my heated grips they wil go through the switched part of the fusebox.
Yeah I know that to be true in my previous Stroms. I don't know if it's true on the new 1000 but regardless I would still most likely wire it to the fuse box since it is easy and simple to do.because heated grips can be had as a factory accessory, there is an unused plug in the wire harness for just that purpose
I'll get a pic in a day or two. I had to take the Strom to the barn and we got 30+ inches of snow in the last 24 hours. There was plenty of room for my fuse block and a terminal strip for a negative polarity connection. Still plenty of room for a PCV when I get around to that.Can you post a picture of your fuse box and where you have it positioned? It's pretty tight under that seat.
