Electricity is for electricians and wizards as far as I"m concerned. Black magic. I try my best to leave it alone and hopefully it will leave me alone.
But I had a scare last summer the day before a big trip, my LED brake light started to flicker on and off. Dangerous! Somehow I managed to trace it to an SAE cable that travels from my battery to the handlebars so I can charge my GPS/phone. It has an inline fuse and one of the legs of the fuse had been crushed and was shorting.
The reason it was crushed is that I have WAY TOO MUCH CROWDING ON TOP OF MY BATTERY. I think I have so many inline fuses there that when I removed and replaced the seat it shifted position and as a result got mushed.
I have a new SAE cable with inline fuse. I have Denali D4 auxiliary lights with lots of cables, connectors a fuse and a relay. And Oxford heated grips and its inline fuse! I have most of the wiring for these run along the frame and then tucked up nicely near the horn. However, the inline fuses have to be right next to the battery because the distance from the fuse to the terminal connector is like 2 inches. And as you guys know, there just isn't any room right there on top of the battery.
My project right now is to clean up and protect this abomination of wiring that I have made. It would be great if I could lengthen the wire between the terminal connector and the inline fuse so I could tuck a couple of the fuses where there is some room behind the battery at the wheel-well. Is this a possibility? Any other suggestions?
