Auxiliary fuse box : Another approach

Recommended Posts

McGyver

If you salvage the wiring loom of a CB500XA and get its fuse boxes and cables...

attachment.php?attachmentid=37629&d=1546

 

...you can go from this...

attachment.php?attachmentid=37630&d=1546

 

...to this...

attachment.php?attachmentid=37631&d=1546

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=37632&d=1546

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=37633&d=1546

 

 

...and end up with this.

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=37634&d=1546

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=37635&d=1546

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=37636&d=1546

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=37637&d=1546

 

Can you spot the differences from stock?

 

:D

I will definitely do this, great idea ! But with 1 slight difference, I think I will need 3 direct connections (permanent voltage) and 3 over the main switch.
Where can I best tap the switched 12V ?

Thanks, Martin

You have a switched circuit in the 6P options connector as soon as you plug in a relay and a fuse.

Ahh, right, well, yessss... but, how, where...
You guessed it right by now, the electrical circuitry of my NC is rather new to me, so:

1. Where is the 6P options connector located

2. Where do I plug in the relay (and the fuse..)

3. What type of relay ? any generic one, or back to the dealer's ?

 

...so sorry to ask...

I bought a cheap option relay from Amazon, £2.50 vs £15 for the Honda one. Works fine BUT it sits a bit proud so that the cover does not fully close. Your call ...

This looks like a better fit but a bit more expensive , £7.50 for a pack of two:

The 6P options connector is located under the fairing panels which run around the Frunk. R hand side for an X model and later S models, L side for early S models (700S, I think). You will find it tucked in near the bottom of the frunk once you’ve removed the panels.
