    As the title reads... I looked at the wiring schematic of my bike in my S/M, and nothing is mentioned of it. Unless it's called something else.

    I'm in the process of building a little electrical project and would love to know before I take the bike apart just to find out if it is or it's not.

    I would think Harley would be smart and throw at least a 5-10 amp inline fuse or run it thru the breaker box fused. But I've seen oddities before.

    Are you asking if a connector like the one below is fused? Or should be fused?

    Yup that's one.

    The one that most normally hook a battery tender up to.

    If its for a battery tender, absolutely fuse it. I am pretty sure most tenders come with the pig tail fused, I know the last couple I bought did.

    You can see the fuse block on the other end of this one.

    Okay, excellent. I had a feeling it wasn't fused.

    Thanks all.

    I went to go take the seat off my bike to clean it underneath, and I got curious and noticed a 3 amp ATC fuse on the battery tender cable on the positive side.

    So, on mine it's fused. Makes me feel better!

    Thought I'd share. :)
