    Has anyone added a Fuzeblock in a 2013 F800GS with the alarm module installed? Mine came with an alarm and that's where most people seem to install their Fuzeblocks - where the alarm would go. Since I don't have access to that space I'm having trouble figuring out where to fit mine, the biggest space I have found is right by the diagnostic plug and the block will fit but there isn't really anything to attach it to. Thanks.

    I put mine under the center front panel with two zip ties and some velcro.

    Switched power comes from the GPS plug, turns off about 30 seconds after shutting the bike down.

    Thanks. I tried there but couldn't find a way that it would fit. I'll have another look when I have it apart again.

    This is where I put it, it's tight but fits even with the cover on. Well protected and very short wiring runs to the battery and the accessories which are mostly located in the cockpit anyway.

    Thanks, I'm not sure we tried it there with the cover off - that may do the trick.

    +1 I did the same thing - it fits in there - tightly - but it fits. I put a strip of thin, adhesive silicone on the top and some velcro on the bottom. (I have a tire repair kit in the rear section)
