    Stripped down bike of all fairings (if you want to see the steps see THIS POST & a few after it) but this time I also removed the main tank cover too.

    The black & red lead hanging down the left side of the tank is for the Autocom which should be sitting in the channel in the tank.

    I decided to mount the fuzeblock on top of the battery for a couple of reasons. It keeps the cable runs short & the main fuse nice & close to the battery. It also means that to add more items into it, I only have to remove the battery cover which is held down with just 2 screws.

    I relocated the autocom fuse (red block to left of the battery) from the top of the battery to the left of it & secured it down with with some velcro. The fuzeblock fits nicely on top of the battery so I cleaned it off with some isopropyl alcohol & stuck that down with some velcro too. I connected the positive (red with inline fuse) & negative (black) wires directly to the battery. The blue wire is connected to a switched live on the GPS connector to activate the relay for the switched side power. The autocom wires were tidied away in the gap between the battery tray & the tank.

    I've left the panels off ready to install the camera system once my mounting bolts arrive.

    Nor mine mate but this is a piece of urne to install.

    It will work fine Alan as the whole idea is to BYPASS the BMW CANbus system. Just for the record, this is the bike I've A) had the longest & B) Had the least amount of problems with so I think that sort of blows your comment out the water.

    Bear in mind that was the original battery (batteries are a consumable after all) I think its done pretty well :)

    Did you ever look at the PDM60 instead of the Fuzeblock ? Just wondered if you had and if you had any reason for choosing the Fuzeblock.

    I did but the PDM60 is pretty much twice the price mate. Yes, its got electronic fuses that reset when you restart the bike & they are reprogrammable but I just couldn`t justify the extra cost.
