FUSE BOX REPLACEMENT?
« on: May 06, 2005, 07:25:50 PM »
I know this subject has been covered before, but I can't seem to find it.
 I got my  little "v" running today, great! But I had some smoke, not from the exaust, from the fuse box. I know I could put in line fuses like I have on the other v, but I would like to install an upgraded fuse box.
 Does anyone know where I can get one that won't melt down, and will fit in the same area as the one the v came with.

i use the inline fuses but other members here have gotten sealed fuse boxes at pep boys. i dont know what the part number is but if you brought yours in i bet they could set you right up.
im sure some one else here has the part number though.

What about the big screen TV, DVD & satellite dish?

If you have an accident on a motorcycle, it's always your fault. Tough call, but it has to be that way. You're in the right, and dead -on a bike. The principle is not to have any accident. If you're involved in an an accident, it's because you did not anticipate. Then, by default, you failed.

Good find, Extent.  Thought I remembered seeing something about a HUD last winter but didn't remember where.  This may have been it.  Too much $$ for me to try on something that likely wouldn't work with the V anyway.  Besides, I just went over the toy budget on a helmet cam.

JP Cycles sells a replacement fuse box.  I think in their catalog it siad it was weather resistant, but doesn't mention anything here:

If you use the fuse box from Littelfuse, it will handle the 30Amp main fuse (even though it is rated for less). I have used it for a while now, and have not had any problems.
A bad marrage is like dirty carbs... It just makes everything else suck.

 ??? No joy at Pep Boy's. They couldn't even cross the part number. I went to Kragen, Auto Zone and Radio Shack. I finally found one at Off Road Warehouse. I had to do some mods but it seems to be the fix I needed. I'll keep you up to date on the other fixes that will be needed on a bike that has less than 2800 miles.

My local NAPA looked one right up in his electrical catalog.
It is 3"x3"x 1/2 with 6 fuses, the plastic auto kind. :D

The terminals were two rows of three to a side of 1/4" spade :P

I had good luck with taking the guts out of an automotive fuse box and inserting into the stock Vision fust box.

Hey coilXZcoyle,
Do you have the part number for that electrical box?  Do you know if it was weatherproof?
