I plan on running heated grips,a GPS, and a 12v socket (to charge phone/ipad, etc). The first two would be switched and and the 12v would remained un switched to be able to keep charging. You think your the three circuit would work? Sorry to bomb on your thread asking but electrical stuff really confuses me!
I don't know what you mean by the "front mask". But you want the wire from the battery to the first fuse to be as short as possible in case the wire shorts to ground from getting the insulation rubbed off. If it shorts, there is no fuse to limit current and you have a good chance of a fire and/or totally trashing the battery.
