    Wiring a Main Fuse in an Early /5

    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently reworking the wiring in a '71 /5, which has no main fuse. I'd like to wire one in per the later models, but am having trouble figuring out the best way to do it and what amperage I need.

    Anyone do this willing to offer advice?

    Thanks!

    Edit: Found my answer here: http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/electricalhints.htm , I swear I looked first but must've missed it.

    Snowbum also has an electrical diagram of the fused version of the /5 here:

    That will also give you a visual of where the fuses are connected in the circuits.
