    Adding a 12V buss off battery for accessories

    I am in the process of adding a 12V buss to my NC for all the accessories, as the stack of terminals on the battery is getting out of control. I purchased this on ebay

    8 Way Terminal Block Bus Bar, 1 Input to 8 Out, 12V DC / 24V AC Input and Output | eBay

    and was wondering where to put it, seems like above battery is logical location, but the Frunk Battery cover uses this area for tool pouch. Where are you folks locating your accessory busses? Pictures would be nice if you have them.

    Thanks for reading.."Willie

    I put the fuse block to the left side of the frunk in faux wall of the gas tank next to the frunk and the ground bus on the right in the faux wall

    This is a picture of the right side with the ground bus, I can't seem to find a picture of the fuse block on the opposite side, but I'm sure you get the idea

    I wanted to add a link to the fuse block and ground bus so you'd have a better idea of what I was able to easily fit there

    I put my fuse block (not a buss) behind the battery cover in the frunk and just above the battery. Attached with velcro.
    It is a small block and plenty of room to screw the battery cover back in place.

    Sorry, no pics..

    I use an Innov PowerHub (Feature of INNOVV POWER HUB1) and it lives in the right fake duct.

    Options for location would depend on the model year of your bike, due to bodywork changes that happened for 2016+.

    I use a Fuzeblocks FZ-1, mounted under the left “fake duct” (fuct?) present on 2012-2015 models. The Fuzeblock allows powering and fusing 6 circuits, with a very simple method of assigned the circuits as either switched by the ignition key or as 24/7 power.

    Greg, Thanks for your input, and yes, I am riding a 2016 with Fiamm Freeway blasters mounted in that area, getting pretty crowded.�� Willie.......

    Thanks Rippin209, great ideas, but unfortunately I am running out of space, I have Sound Blasters mounted on either side of the Frunk in front, so getting very tight for bigger fuse blocks.

    Thanks Ld rider, I guess I will try to wrestle my purchase in the same location you chose, my only concern is, will the battery cover go back on without interference? Guess I will give it a go.
