Exclamation Battery connections - to many

I must have about 4 wires running to my battery now for this and that with separate fusses. Things like Gerbings connections, alarm, ex lights & sockets, etc. I would like to get them off the battery and put elsewhere. So i was thinking that perhaps there is a block out there that I could run one wire to and then have all the connections off the block. Of coarse I would have to have 2 blocks, one for pos and one for neg.
The next question would be where to put it on my GT.

Any covered / protected blocks out there I can run several wires from? I would keep the individual fuses to each line since they are of different AMPage.

Check out www.centechwire.com. It is a fuse panel that will hold 5 inputs. Advertised in BMWON.

This was posted on one of my posts, maybe you did not see it.
Go here: http://www.centechwire.com/ You may find what your looking for.
"Centech AP-1, Aux. fuse panel" . I think one of the other guys mounted on under seat somewhere. Good luck ! .
OOPS.......Looks like Mr. Loggiebone beat me to it.

Another option is www.bluesea.com fuse box. Marine grade and they come covered and with labels. You can have them in 4 to 12 circuits. I had two of the 6 circuits on my LT. First was for all the HID lights (4 lights), the radar detector and GPS. That was in the nose cone. Second one under the seat.

thanks

this is great info guys.
i see the Centech @ 50.00 fits under where i would put it. the other is a bit bigger @ 32.00. so, I will have to pick between them.

in any event, this is what i was looking for.

wish these bikes has a bit more space.

I had thought of putting the electricals in the space now occupied by the tools, and moving the tools to the compartment under the seat. Do you think that this little weightshift will be feelable?
