Started running the proper wiring for the fuze block i bought. Trying to find a good a good switched 12v. Probably tap the glovebox switched circuit.

S/P - where are you mounting the F/B? If under the seat, grab switched power from the license plate light - blue wire with white stripe - make your own pigtail and avoid cutting any wires from the Yammie harness.

I can shoot you some pictures of my setup if you'd like.

Yep under the rear seat. I looked at the license plate connector but with the bike being all led lights the wire is so thin i think im doubling the current flow. What year is your bike? Its would be a heck of a lot easier than tapping the lock for the glove box.

Tail light wire is fine, or the licence plate wire... it doesn't take much current at all for a trigger relay.

Changed out the old brake fluid, while installing speedbleeders, which is good.
I was on the low end of the rookie scale for getting old liquid on the bike, which is bad.
I have new clutch fluid and brake fluid and now have great brake action, which is good.
I found out that the ABS block would not actuate, which is good to know now, not on a spirited ride, but potentially bad, certainly disappointing.
I found out, once again, that I have very helpful friends here, friends that make me laugh, and friends that have both qualities...all of which is very good.

Work. Volunteered as the bad guy qualifying cadets. Some fighting involved. Some pepper spray involved. Bad luck when receiving a baton strike. I have an impressive temporary cast almost to my elbow. My hope is to convince the orthopedic surgeon to fashion a “hook” inside the natural curl of my fingers when he’s making the permanent cast, so I can perpetrate the clutch. Will not be able to shred with jwilly. But I’ll fucking ride. I fought four more guys and rode my bike home after I broke it. It was excruciating, but I’m the boss of me.

Yep looks like you have a different year. All the wiring on my bike, well except for maybe two wires, leading to the taillighting is no bigger than the blue with red strip wire in the background. Ill need to attack it tomorrow and get it done. Long day today. Thanks for the pic.

AE for the win. :D

If you were close and it had good tires I'd let you borrow it.

If I were close I’d pay to put tires on it and swap you for the ‘18 for the duration.

OK - first, I'm certainly not trying to insult your intelligence, but the blue/red stripe wire in the background is what I used for my "trigger" wire on the Fuze-block. That wire is connected to the "ignition hot" lead on the F/B. For the main power and ground, I round tripped 12 gage non-stranded wire to the battery, with a 30 amp fuse in a waterproof fuse holder at the "+" on the battery. I could show you pictures of how I did that - I think it came out pretty good. The trigger wire doesn't draw any power - like MAYBE 0.25 amps. That thin blue/red stripe wire is more than adequate - even considering the draw of the license plate light.

What accessories are you looking to run off the Fuze Block?

This morning took a nice ramblin 2 1/2 hour ride with my son David...he on his 2004 FJR...went through rural north Greenville County, up through Tryon and Saluda...nice cloudy sprinkle day with low 70s in Saluda and upper 80s near home base. Had a cup of coffee and a biscuit and talked...hadn't ridden with him in awhile as he is a busy young man. He wanted to show me the mint condition 90s station wagon he bought. They don't have kids yet...but maybe in a few years after some ducks take their place in the row.
