Title: BigPie Aux Fusebox MK2
Post by: bigpie on March 15, 2019, 18:15:22
Hello,
This is the newest version, now with 4 outputs in a smaller size and screw terminals. As before, no cutting of the loom on V-Stroms and likely other Suzukis

looks good, as usual, BP :thumb:  What size fuses? Any included?

For anyone looking for the first time:

And, probably this youtube link still works for new design ...

Is there a benefit for the solid state relay, over the old 4 pole plug in type?
Title: Re: BigPie Aux Fusebox MK2
Post by: bigpie on March 18, 2019, 06:03:45
It isn't a SSR, it's just a conventional relay in a smaller package.

Could you explain to the technically dim why I would need one? Everyone raves about your old version and I'm going to be using the bike for commuting come next week and feel like this is something I should have, but don't know is why or what it does...
Title: Re: BigPie Aux Fusebox MK2
Post by: UK_Vstrom650 on March 18, 2019, 19:42:45
It lets you add switched accessories easily. Usually people either wire directly to the battery and run the risk of leaving them (e.g. heated grips) on when they leave the bike, which flattens the battery, or people have to splice into the loom and make their own switched wiring. This does it for you without having to cut into the loom, and has a relay to reduce the load on the stock wiring.

It's a bargain at £30 for a plug and play switched accessory connector with individual fuses.

Edit: mine run, LED spotlights, heated grips, heated jacket, and two cigarette sockets for providing Sat Nav and dashcam power.

I was showing a friend of mine my mk1 Aux Fuse box on my Glee yesterday and he would like to get something similar for his, new to him, 2007 Triumph Tiger 1050.
Is it possible to fit one to this model Triumph? I’m a tech cretin but assume it would depend on finding a suitable wiring connector to tap into, like the Glee one under the back of the tank does?
If you could advise I’ll let him know.
Thanks, Mark.

Hmm I don't use any of those extras but I might if I'm commuting. Are they easy to fit?
Title: Re: BigPie Aux Fusebox MK2
Post by: bigpie on March 19, 2019, 07:49:46
Stonec0ld, very easy, usually just removing the seat is enough. Screw the ring terminals on to the battery, locate the rear brake pedal connector, separate it and put the fusebox wiring between the 2 connectors.

If you collect I'll show you how/help fit.

mrp192, it will work on a Tiger like any other bike, but I don't have access to one to find a suitable connector. I know some people have used a posi-tap on a switched live on other bikes.

I think the clue is in the title...but

Assume this allows tidy connection of a number of accessories to a block with individual fuses and block connects simply to battery by two wires with a 'activation switch' from the rear brake? Assume fine for a 2009 reg wee - same wire to rear brake pedal feed.

There seem to be several images floating around the site so wanted to check a couple of things as it's not entirely clear to me - do accessories wires connect via screw rather than male/female bullets? Other images look like bullets, latest looks like a block connector with screws? And in latest pic there is the thick black and red wires + a thin black one - assume that's the one to the rear brake pedal wiring? And what are the rough dimensions please - assume it's up to buyer as to how to attach. PM for order / payment?

Apologies for length of Qs but couldn't find direct answers easily in swathes of original posts.

Feel free to reply as quote with answers as may help others.

I suspect the answers will be as I expect and perhaps then I can post some images myself on purchase / fitting  :grin:

Previous version used bullets, this required the end user to crimp bullets on to accessories, with this version they simply use the screw terminals. 2009 Wee is the same as other stroms.
28mm heigh, 68.5mm in length and 47mm wide.

Fitting to a 09 Weestrom - the wire - orange and grey (or white) and black - in the shadow (under coolant tank, under petrol tank)

close up of connector - flipping hard to get to & mine has a cable tie just besides, but easy to disconnect once past the gynecological constrictions  :)

Post by: Fritz on April 11, 2019, 13:31:49
Disconnect (fairly easy - look at a connector you can get to easily to see where clip is before ferreting about :smirk: - clip in aux each end and move back to a safe point in void and move on to where you want to put the box etc. Good bit of kit and will save considerable faff and any future worries and access problems for add-ons.  :clap:

Are you now supplying to submariners too?

Post by: bigpie on April 18, 2019, 12:39:04
I've had someone buy one and have concerns about rain and crossing streams, though if an submariners need a 12v relay fusebox, I'm your man.

Can anyone tell me what fuses I need? Obviously not very electrically minded here.

The live red has a spot for a fuse and also what fuse should I use in the box? Planning to put my heated grips through the box?

Title: Re: BigPie Aux Fusebox MK2
Post by: bigpie on April 18, 2019, 13:57:42
Heated grips either a 2amp or a 3amp. Just stick at 15 or 20 amp in the main fuse holder.

If you take the bullet connectors out of the equation is the mk1 still smaller? Mk2 just terminates in the unit itself - very neat and easier for the end user.
Title: Re: BigPie Aux Fusebox MK2

I'll take some side by side photos later, the mk1 on my bike will be replaced by the mk2 that's been under water.

Hello Gents

Thanks to Bigpie I have now fitted my auxiliary power fusebox and run the heated grips and USB connector through it, Lights to be added when I finally decide between 55w Halogen or 35w LED's for added visibility on rainy mornings! Pic attached! Very easy install, Thanks Bigpie.
