Details and Features
Fuzeblocks has designed a fuse block that is easy to install and fits into a small space. The on board relay offers the choice for any device to be switched on or off automatically with the vehicle or to be powered constantly.
With the FZ-1 in place you can power all kinds of motorcycle accessories including, but not limited to, auxiliary lighting, GPS, radar detector, CB/FRS/GMRS radio, heated grips, XM radio, audio mixers, intercom system and any other device requiring 10A or less. Any of these accessories can have constant or switched power by simply placing the fuse in the correct position for the power desired.
Installation for the FZ-1 fuse block requires no crimping. All connections are made by heavy duty screw terminals that can accept up to a 12 gauge wire. All the FZ-1 needs is +12VDC, ground and a +12VDC switched source to make it fully functional. The unique board layout provides six individually fused circuits that can supply constant or switched power for each accessory depending on your needs. Check out all the features the FZ-1 has to offer and you'll agree that it makes powering your accessories easy.
Normally, to have switched and constant power for your accessories, two fuse blocks are required. One is wired directly to the battery for constant power and the second fuse block is wired through a relay for switched power. The FZ-1 eliminates the need to wire two fuse blocks by providing both types of power in one unit. It reduces the wiring by more than half and allows you to select what type of power you want for each output. The FZ-1 is easy to install, reduces the amount of wiring time required and is about the size of a pack of cigarettes. The unit is great for experts who want a simple installation and for novices who are electrically challenged.
Dimensions: L 3.25" x W 2.5" x H 1.25"
Very First Farkle

We installed this on a Yamaha FJR1300 that had all kinds of spaghetti wiring at the battery. After trying to incorporate this item into the existing wiring we soon found it easier to strip all the original wiring modifications and start fresh. Once completed everything was as close to original with accessories. The big benefit is being able to change anyone of the circuits from constant on to ignition switched or vice Versa. For example I would not wire my accessory plug as live but my communication device died so while in having lunch I was charging it & all that was necessary was to reset the fuse into the constant on position. Came out from lunch & itwas at charged ready for the ride. The only mod to the existing wiring was taking a jumper from the tail lights to energize the ignition circuit to power other items such as GPS, Heated gear & grips. If something should short it is independent of the bikes wiring system leaving it trouble free. It also allows you to swap out the fuse without having to disassemble the front fairing to get to the battery and inline fuses wherever they may be located.
Safe options to wire accessories

After examining some alternatives I concluded this was my best option.
It allows for 6 different circuits with a main 30 AMP fuse to protect all circuits. You can use whatever size fuse you want on the 6 circuits just make sure to never draw more than 30 amps total. The big benefit to using this Fuze block is you can change the way a circuit is powered with the fuse the center slot is common and the 2 outer slots are constant power and ignition power. For example I don't want to leave my USB port powered all the time but when I stop for lunch I realize my phone is dead so I flip the the fuse from ignition power to constant power and it will charge my phone while I am having lunch. When I come back to the bike I can put the fuse back in the ignition power slot and all is normaled again.
It's a great way to add accessories without butchering the factory wiring.
