Adding an GPS via the fuse system
« on: September 19, 2019, 02:17:18 PM »
I’m thinking of wiring my GPS through a fuse spur inserted into the stop/tail/meter fuse. This is the kind of thing I’m talking about;

Has anyone done this? I don’t see a problem with the draw, the GPS is very low in that respect, rather the profile of the fuse spur possibly preventing the lid of the fuse box seating down.
If you have done it, which did you use and where from?

Cheers,
Murph

I spent $14.00 on the Accessory Sub Harness (PART# - 08A00-MGH-640). It plugs in to an existing plug under the left side plastic. It has switched and un-switched connections. I use it for my after market heated grips, my GPS connection and an ANSI connector.

I use inline fuses for each accessory.

Unless you are dead set on your original plan, Grabcon's suggestion is the best option.

My only issue with the sub harness is that its designed for Honda accessories so plugs etc then become an issue.
Please correct me if I have the wrong idea here. My electrickery experience is largely confined to ‘70s bullet connectors and the like.

I forget where I got them but I bought plug kits that connected right to the Honda plugs and they were not very much money. Also they have these things called wire cutters and the plugs come right off. :001:

Just google Honda Motorcycle connectors I am sure you will find something.
