    Installed Fuzeblock FZ-1

    I need to find a way to get power for my GPS and it seems that fuzeblock is very simple to install. Bought it online, and also bought the accessory (wiring harness).

    Used the space for the tool bag in the luggage to mount the fuzeblock unit. Needed to cut the luggage lid to allow wires going in to the luggage. The lid is about $25 and I can easily buy online if I decided to revert the mod later. +12v trigger is connected to the rear turn signal light.

    Hi
    Welcome to this den.

    I have read about this but do not have experience with it.
    Can you show some pictures of some devices attaching to it for power?
    Why is it so good to use this instead of just connecting up to the battery directly?

    Can you be as layman as possible, coz I am not so young and bright no more...

    Thanks.

    I don't understand your source of switched power. There is no continuous source of switched power at the rear turn signal light.

    You can use any switched power source (like horn, break light, ...) on the vehicle, and I pick rear turn signal lights (easy access).

    Hi happy, you can refer to the pdf from fuzeblock for the diagram. https://fuzeblocks.com/docs/fz-1-installation.pdf

    It's actually quite straight forward. I connect the red wire to battery + end, black wire to the ground, yellow wire to the rear signal light (after removing one screw under the rear fender). As for the gps device, just hook up to the device slots as indicated in the pdf.

    I'm with Beemerphile about using the rear turn signal as the switched power source. Isn't power through that wire ONLY present when the turn signal is on (or am I missing something - always a possibility, I'm afraid!)? I would have thought the switched power source for the relay would require the presence of juice whenever the key is on, and I don't quite get how that applies to the turn signal?!?

    I agree with you, same applies for horn and brake light. The right light to tap in the rear of the bike would be the tail light which is on whenever the key is on. The wire color is pink with blue. You can get the ground locally at the battery.

    Hi Beemerphile and BttrThnWrk, thanks for pointing out this. You are right that it's not the turn signal light. It is indeed the tail light (pink and blue). Ground is directly attached to the battery as you indicated.

    Thanks.
    So the rear tail light "switches" on the FZ1 when you turn the ignition key on?

    Cool, now I get it...
