    It simplifies the wiring process when running multiple accessories.
    Gps, additional lights, heated grips, heated clothing,...

    BMW thing?,... :rofl

    In mounting the FZ-1, am I good in using the available aux 2 (switched) wire to trigger the relay?

    I plan to splice into it (vs running a wire back to the brake light) unless one of you electrical gurus has a better idea.

    Thanks!

    used the aux switched too to switch the power.
    Mainline directly from pos plug right side of the bike (still needs a single connector attached).
    Running the ground to the frame.
    Connects:
    • heated grips
    • aux lights
    • gps
    • tripy (electronic roadbook)
    • hazard light blinkers controller
    • 1 spare atm

    I put mine in the glovebox. That has worked out fine. The only concern that I had was working around the wires in a "field" repair. But even that has worked out. Here I am stripping the bike in Colorado to fix the carbs. I just used a strap to hold up the glovebox as I worked on the carbs. No real problem at all.

    Those are the wires that I connected to for switched power. Never caused me any problems. I ran a wire to the battery for the direct power for the unit.

    Been working this way for about 2 years now with no issues. I'm still happy with my FZ1.

    Thanks to 3 ADVers who'd installed the FZ-1, I found a pretty easy way of mounting my FuzeBlock behind the headlight. Easy peasy.

    Thanks for the help, guys!
