So The harness I have does not have this for my katana. It's the little module with the red button. It seems as if suzuki loved this little thing, as i'm finidng it in a ton of fiches for other bikes. Being Mr. Cheap as possible, but within reason, I was wondering if it would be all the same if I just wired an inline fuse in place of the breaker instead of paying $30-$40 for a new breaker.

Has anyone done this, or does anyone know of the amperage of these breakers?

Yeah that's what I was thinking, but getting the correct size fuse matched up with the same size breaker is the issue as I do not know and cannot find the amperage that actually trips it out.

I'm still looking, but I think I may just need to buy the breaker.

Ok do you mean the breaker is missing or was never fitted to your model ? it could be either !

let me know & I can advise :)

Ok that is your main fuse for the older model wiring with a black almost oval holder?, from memory its 30 amp (but please check)

You can wire an inline fuse onto those wires (red from memory) I have used blade type ones a few times & with a blade type fuse holder you can get yourself a push to reset fuse if you wanted (similar to household ones but 12v) the only other option is a stock one from ebay but how good they will be by now is anyone's guess

Later models used a 30 amp main fuse on the starter solenoid but ive never looked at wiring one of those in to an older harness so cant say more

Yeah I've been searching everywhere and cannot find the breaker by itself on eBay. The old gsxr oilers used them, some older cruisers and the katanas all used them for a long time. Just seems to be one of those things that never needed to be replaced, so there's no info that I can find.

Do you remember how you got the info for how many amps the breaker would be made for? I don't know anything about amps or watts or voltage. I'm just muddling through as best as possible
