Man, I've had so many bikes with zero fuses. Uhh...8 right off the top of my head

Definitely not a bad idea, though.

never been a fan of those screw on fuse holders.. they never close as well as they should, and you end up cranking them on.. never to be undone..


i would say.. look at revivals stuff, they have make your own fuse blocks.. maybe someone here knows what these are called and know if a single fuse type..https://shop.revivalcycles.com/water...ay-fuse-block/

being a munit you only really need one fuse.. then you can run a solid state or breaker fuse.. https://shop.revivalcycles.com/solid...-reset-20-amp/

Main problem with installing an inline main fuse is there's no place to put it. Didn't plan ahead.

Trying to figure out what wire to order. Will probably use 4rcustomswire.com. (Recommended by Mike.) Thinking I could get by with 18 gauge wire for almost everything.

18 should be good depending on what you're running...

i did 90% of my bike with 22 ga wire.

Fusable link ? Maybe just crimp a fancy 2 pole connector on a link one side goes to battery and the other to the m-unit. Make a few spares...

It's a clean idea.

Had to look up fusable wire. Never seen it before.

Maybe as last resort. I could see it going wrong, in a big way.

Fancy 2 pole connector? No idea what that looks like, even after searching.

If wiring was an event in the Special Olympics, I'd probably come in last.

Any good CF threads on wiring?

Found this one. Sure there's more.

Was thinking about 22 gauge, but would hate to put it in the wrong place.

All of the inputs on the left side of the m-unit should be good to go with 26 gauge, or larger. 22 gauge is the smallest gauge sold in bulk on 4rcustomswire.com, so that's fine.



Appreciate any and all help, tips, and advice.

22 gauge would probably be fine on the input side of the m-unit, although I'd probably use 20 (or even 18) if I was wiring it, just based upon it generally being stronger and easier to crimp connectors to, not so much on current capacity.

If you are trying to hide a bunch of wires to your controls, you can find multi-strand wiring "bundles" that are all wrapped up in one insulator, like so:



I'd use at least 16 gauge on the 10A circuits on the right, and 10 gauge on the starter circuit.

Aux would depend on what I was wiring and how many amps it needed, but 12 gauge should handle the 16 amps max it specs.
