Sorry I don't know about wiring, but curious for what you are using this for.

Fuse Block

Has anyone installed a blue sea fuse block. I need wiring instructions for switched and unswitched. I have the fuse block 5025 which has pos & neg posts, and a 30a relay.

A link or instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Would be nice if we could see the directions. But lets try: Switched (Source +) is a wire that is only "Hot" / enegrized when the key is "On". The Unswitched (Source +) would be "Hot" / energized at all times (directly hooked to the battery.). I'm uncertain if this was your question but took a shot at it. Post again if you need more.

Cheers

Thanks guys for the responses.

Jace: when wired to the battery, this device allows for install of multiple accessories (light bar, GPS, heated grips etc..) without overwhelming the battery terminals or having to find creative places to ground each accessory.

Steve: Unless I overlooked it, the instructions on bluesea website only show the unswitched installation with the Fuse Block Pos & Neg to battery. I want to wire it with a relay to take advantage of the switched option.

Here is what I kinda think I Know for sure.
Relay (30) to Battery (+)
Relay (87) to Fuse Block (+)
Relay (86) to Switched 12 volt (+)
Relay (85) to ground
Fuse block (-) to Battery (-)

Am I missing anything.

Ahh I see. But wouldn't the switched connection in the bike already have a fuse on them? And wouldn't that play with the FuseBlock? Or are you going to use a switched relay to activate the relay in between the direct connection to the battery that would power the FuseBlock?

I really have been thinking of doing something along the same lines. I have multiple items tied directly to the battery terminals. I looks like a rats nest under the seat. everything is marked and knowing that I'd clean-it-up sometime, I've not cut any leads shorter. That means coiled up lengths of wire tucked under there as well. Let's see to the Batt.: Aux. outlet (w/fuse), Kury aux light harness (w/relay & fuse), battery tender (w/fuse), homemade 4 way flasher circuit (w/relay & fuse), LED lights (w/fuse) is all I can think of. Aargh!

You are correct Jace. I guest I didn't list it but my intention is to place a 30A inline fuse bet ween the Relay (30) and Battery (+).

Mickey, you didn't overlook anything. I misunderstood your question.
I realize there are other blocks a bit more expensive available but I thought I'd give this one a try. My only concern is that the thickness of the blue sea may be an issue. Over the weekend, I ordered the blue sea, along with an inline fuse, relay and a wired relay female connector which will be my starting point for building my wire harness. I got all for $39.00 @ amazon.

I may not get the opportunity to install this weekend or the next, but I'll give an update when I do.
