BigPie Aux Fusebox MK2
« 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







One can be yours for £30 posted to UK addresses.

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?

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...

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?

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.
