Four hours of quiet work in the garage and one trip to Checker for electrical parts and the Fuzeblock is hooked up. Good directions and pretty easy wiring got me set up with my AutoCom, Satellite Radio and heated liner for the wife. Using the tool tray under the seat worked fine. There is enough room for the Fuzeblock and AutoCom boxes. I ran the power cord and audio cord under the left side plastic to the radio. I used the auxillary power outlet to be the Trigger for the Switched side of the power and it all seems to work. Now I need to cut about 20' of antenna wire off that I don't need because the antenna mount is on the same ram mount as the radio. All I need now is riding weather. . .too much snow in Colorado.

Installed one on my Honda Rebel about 5 months ago, the one for the 650GS just showed up yesterday.

Danged thing was a piece of cake to install on the Rebel, not quite sure where its gonna fit on the 650 though......:scratch Not a whole lot of room under that seat.

The picture makes it look large. The item is about ?¥ths the size of a deck of cards.

One of the simplest to install and easiest to use pieces of gear on the market. The only tricky part is finding a switch power lead. But that is not the fault of the fuzeblock.

Nice piece of kit.

Paul, that looks like a tidy job. I mounted the base plate to my tool tray to make it a little sturdy. Put the AutoCom on top and to the side of it also in the tool tray. The BMW stock auxillary plug right below the tool tray worked as my power switch. GSA rocks now, just need nice weather but it is coming in Colorado.

I put one under the left dash panel of my R1200ST (http://darryl.crafty-fox.com/mcpics/2009/R12ST-Electrics). It was very easy to do, and like you, I tapped into the canbus accessory lead to get switched power. I also used the opportunity to install a Stebel air horn.
