Does anyone know anything about these fuses for the terminal block. They are individual fuses that "bridge" the wiring screws on the terminal block. I got these years ago with some other accy items and have not seen anymore. Does anyone know where to but them at if they are still produced. I would like to put a set on my speedsters.

You really only need one on the Battery wire.

I thought about that. But are all the other wires hot at some time.? I know you will only be protecting half of each circuit, but that is half that was not protected before. Im not much of an electrician, so I could be wrong ...

I think the photo is upside down.... I suspect the fuses would be used to protect the lite circuits which would put the fuses at positions 3 thru 6. It is much more difficult to protect the battery (and the magneto) as the current in & out of that terminal is much more variable. Also if you put a fuse in the battery wire, when it does blow you loose ignition and lights, not a good idea for night driving.

Tony: That makes sence. That may be why there are only 4 of the fuses on the panel ... Thanks ...
