The fuse block certainly is a neat way to power auxiliary components.
I use only "KLRista Engineering" connections (basically, stacking connectors onto battery terminals) to power auxiliary 12-volt socket, Gerbing's heated clothing, and TPI relay harness for "Fat Boy" H4 headlight (Generation 1).
My Generation 1 stator wouldn't handle, gracefully, the Gerbing's jacket liner, gloves, and pants, so--I upgraded the stator (to 280 watts) with Race Tech stator and rectifier/regulator. (I think the Generation 2 stator would have been adequate for the load. Why not upgrade with one? No ignition exciter coil on the Generation 2 stator!)
Still running glass fuses, 'cept for the in-line blades for the TPI headlight relay harness and the Gerbing's power cord.
Gonna get a blade fuse box some day; at least blade fuses to replace the glass ones. Bought a BMW multiple-connection positive battery terminal connector, but--it needs some Mr. Bench Grinder modification before it fits the KLR configuration; might be my next electrical project.
The fuse block you show, lacofdfireman, and the one from Aerostitch linked by Grinnin, look like excellent approaches, as in, "right the first time," to augmenting the KLR's electrics.
