    Power Block Question

    I'm looking for some feedback from anybody that has successfully installed a manufactured power block (for accessories) on their F6B. If you had to do it again what would you change by way of placement, size etc.., if anything?

    Thanks for your insight.

    Eastern Beaver...quality workmen ship. It's fused & has positive & negative sides. Fairly EZ to work with & install. I used velcrow & a zip tie to hold mine to the strap that holds the battery in place. It fits nicely between the side cover & the battery & it's a fairly EZ safe run for accessory wires.

    I agree. Used Eastern Beaver box on my B and on another bike before. I attached it to the bottom of the cover on the right side - opposite the little storage box - and used 3M double sided tape to keep it in place. I put it there for 2 reasons: 1) most of my add-in requiring power (phone charger, Garmin & heated clothing plug so far) are all up front, and 2) it is much easier to get to than removing the seat. It has worked great.

    Ya have to agree, but did put it under seat.
    So much easier to add things to bike as far as heated clothing and lights, and outlets.

    Hooked mine to the battery with Velcro, works great and easy access.

    I put a block under the left cubby. Saves running more wires from the battery.
    ITS ALL GOOD
