    I suppose some may think I'm committing a sacrilege with this idea, but I want to add a fuse box like a Centech or a Fuzeblock to my R100r. What I am looking for is advice for a mounting location. The easiest solution would be to remove the tool tray, but I'm not sure I want to be that severe.

    Really can't push this little product enough.

    Been told that $60 in USA was a bit expensive ... but here in OZ I was quoted over double for something even similar.

    Fits really nice under the tank with easy access if you do blow a fuse ( no need to take off the tank ) ... well made ... and only took a few minutes to install. And as I posted ... it actually looks stock on the bike

    I know it's not the most accessible, but have you thought about putting it under your tank with the rest of your electrical components? You'll have to pull the tank to get to them but it's not like you'll need to do it often or that it's much trouble. Also, you can get a fuse block at your auto parts store for 10 bucks. The centech is nice but I didn't find it worth the money.

    edit: I have a suzuki front end, a ducati alternator, a toyota starter and whole buncha welded home made garbage on my bike. A fuse block is hardly sacrilege :D

    +1. Plus extra wiring for the point converted bean can w/ a dyna spark booster so you can bypass it, or any other component. Could probably wire another bike with the extra. And, I can't remember how I wired it. :lol3

    Those painless kits are great. Used one to build a '43 Willys Jeep. Good quality wire and components.
