CBX750 originally has fuse box for six glass fuses and two spare fuses. I decreased number of fuses down to five by removing unit which responsible for tail lamp failure indication. I bought fuse box for eight blade fuses with intention to put in it three spare fuses, two to replace any of five regular fuses and one, 30A to replace main fuse in starter relay. Thus, as fuse in CBX750 starter relay is also “old style”, I decided to use CB750 Seven Fifty starter relay.
I worked through few ideas of fuse box position and as result, I found the place for it under the tank. For the rear mounting point I used front mounting point of ignition unit holder. For front point I used clamp mounted onto the frame, using rubber band as a kind of vibrating protection. I crimped connectors on “intake” wire in five places without breaking it:
- Starter relay position must be as close to battery and starter, as possible
- There should be ability to replace main fuse without tools.
After some thoughts I not only found the best solution for starter relay but also found a place for regulator/rectifier. I made housing of aluminium and used fast release fasteners, but I think in this case pictures will describe my design of the part better, than words.
And a couple views of cable/wires disposition:
