I certainly wouldn't recommend it due to the possibility of exceeding the design capacity of the circuit. You could be asking for serious trouble. :wink:entrop said:The accessory terminal on the fuse panel has a 5 amp fuse in it. If I needed more capacity can I simply replace it with a 10 amp fuse?
This is straight from a Honda Tech Bulletin. Since they designed and built the bike, I have to assume they know their stuff.entrop said:Without the OK of someone who really knows his stuff, I wouldn't do it.
Not exactly. The accessory + terminal is powered off of the accessory relay which draws power through the audio/accessory fuse (#21). The wire from the relay to the ACC. + terminal is what the 5-amp fuse is protecting - bad idea to replace it with a higher capacity fuse.entrop said:...and the other side of the fuse is the same power supply that runs the lights, starter, etc.
There are 5 other year models of GL1800. The '06 is different than the others, but the same principle applies; the accessory terminal is not attached to a bus bar. BTW, fuse #10 on your '06 protects both the accessory terminal screws AND the optional socket - but it's still a 5-amp fuse. That makes the accessory socket pretty useless if there's already something drawing a few amps from the accessory terminals.gwlrhfarm said:Now I'm totally confused...according to the 2006 Honda Service Manual....
Thats what I'm going to do...along with Fred H's Grounding strip...then hang all my accesories (under 30 amps) off of them...this was great...THANKS ALL!!!!zaT111 said:I would not recommend it, designed for only 5 amp load. Add an EC power plate for your accessories, six outputs, up to 30 amps total. It is a clean and easy install, the matching ground plate works well also.
