Tony is an inmate here, and good people!

Let me know if you have any special accessories. I can make you a custome wiring diagram. Basic but easy to follow.

Thank you very much. Presently I have only a 12v plug outlet for my GPS but plan on adding a set of lights soon.


That is after the install of the new Wilbers front and rear, new Anakee3 tires, FD and oil/filter fluid changes. Thanks for the DVD by the way

(Careful, Jim! Your answer is to "Do you prefer cycle nutz to eastern beaver?" might have repercussions in Jo momma!)

I put the rear wheel back on the Softail. God bless the motorcycle jack! Much easier than trying to hold or wedge up a heavy ass wheel and thread an axle through the swingarm.

It depends. The EB unit has a need for an external relay that takes up more space and adds complexity. For some this is a good thing because they are comfortable with the added wiring, and they need the added capacity. The EB kit is very high quality, and I like a few of its features a bit better, like the basic mount system.




Needs both to used switched power.

However, I think the Fuzeblock is simpler and has plenty of capacity for most users, especially with much of the Aux lighting going to low draw LEDs these days. The FB also has the capability of choosing how many of your circuits have switched or batter power by simply swapping the fuse from one terminal to the other. In the unlikely event of a relay failure the FB allows one to go battery power to all circuits, where the EB unit is limited to two! The other benifit of the FB is that it is simpler for novices to install.


Simple, small and clean.


Hap, Jo momma already has my number, I doubt it could get much worse!

36K service, which is all fluids including brakes, valves, alternator belt and throttle body sync.









A little corrosion repair as well.

Went for a ride today. Noticed the RH grip warmer was not working. Stopped at gas station and saw wire was damaged to grip. Got home, removed grip then removed heat element. Cut wire back, desoldered from heater and resoldered new larger wires back onto element. Solder new wires to old wires and tidy up wiring.

Back to nice N toasty!

I made SteverStoves with a damn dislocated shoulder and fractured humerus. That was pretty fun.
