Denali Powerhub or FZ-1 Fuze Block - Thoughts?

I have heated hand grips, a stereo system and I'll be adding extra lighting in the near future and maybe a setup for heated gear. Should I invest in an item like these?

FZ-1 Fuzeblock Fuse Block with Built-In Relay

I don't know electronics well so I most likely wouldn't be able to fix this if it started giving me issues like in some of the reviews I've read. I need a set it and forget it approach.

FZ-1 Fuzeblock Fuse Block with Built-In Relay

Joey - I put these into my '08 and '09, while on my '15, I just use the pre-wired OEM attachment points.

I recommend the Fuzeblock...!

You can build a functionally identical one for $5 from an auto relay. See prior threads. An auto relay including socket was $4 on Ali express while terminal blocks were $1 and a fuse holder was $1.

I've used a fuse block (Blue Sea 5025) before on other bikes, but this time with the Versys I used the OEM accessory relay, and ran multiple leads from that to my accessories. I did add additional fuses on some things, like a 5A fuse in the lead to my tank bag. That way if something goes wrong in the tank bag, the 5A fuse blows but the rest of the accessories keep working.

if you dont want to waist a bunch of money you can build your own aux fuse block for around $30. Damn you OCD. Plans/projects to come
all you need is a relay(about $5) and fuse box(about $10) and some wire and connectors(maybe $10-15)

Fuse Blocks

Sorry I missed this message last month. There is an ex-pat American living in Japan that makes some real quality stuff, and you have choices on the length of the leads. the name of his company is Eastern Beaver. No kidding, it won't cause you to be redirected to a porn site if you try it. It is easternbeaver.com. His stuff is less expensive than the big producers, and you can spec out heavier wiring if you want, and pre-fused lines. The Pc-8 is his standard, and you can order it with a 50 amp fuse if you like.

Build Your Own

Several good threads;
see my first post , total cost in parts was under $30; 1 relay and harness and one waterproof fuseholder, two weatherproof cigarette lighter plugs , the wiring I already had, all the fuses and other holders came with the heated jacket and Oxford grips and the relay for the Denali was included with the horn
