Just wanted to share this. I found a much simpler install for multiple constant connections for half the price of the Fuzeblock. It is also a little bit smaller, so guys that are running out of underseat storage may be interested also.

For me this is perfect, I only need power for gps, a power socket, and eventually some driving lights. Although it is constant power and not switched, it is fused, and saves a lot of space.

It's simple, which I like, but you still need relays if you want devices to turn on/shut off with the key. I guess you could wire a relay to control this Powerlet contraption, but if you're doing all that a Fuzeblock does it all in a nice, tidy package. YMMV.

Is that really smaller than a Fuzeblock? Looks like more stuff going on...it all needs to go somewhere.

Anyway, thanks for sharing an option.

Yea i've had that on my bike since April 2010. It works great and is easy to tuck out of the way.

Yeah, I was sharing a constant on connection for guys that didn't need a switched connection. I have a Fuzeblock, but never got around to installing it due to having tools and a Pack Jack taking up all the room under my seat. I decided the ability to do a little on the road maintenance was more important than having switched connections.

That was my situation also, I don't have space under the seat.
I bought the Fuzeblock more than a year ago, but only now I had the time to install it. It works perfectly under the left fairing and it's a very clean install.

Can you post a pic of what it looks like all tucked away when you get a chance?
Wouldn't do any good. The last time it was neat in that area was in 2010. i've added all kinds of goodies and under the seat is full.

When I did mine, I just wanted to be able to keep the toolkit in place which I didn't do on my last Versys. That's why I have a small fuse block in the rear and relays elsewhere under the seat. This picture doesn't show the diodes I recently added near the fuseblock.

The OP's cable seems nice.
