    I have way to many connections on my battery terminals. I've heard them referred to as terminal blocks, power blocks and Kuryakyn has one called a fused terminal. I need to condense wires from multiple LED's, heated gloves, trickle charger, USB port etc. Currently the underside of my seat and all the twisted together wires is a mess making it very difficult to remove the battery!
    Looking for suggestions from riders who have used this product to clean up the wiring and get back to single connector on the positive and negative terminals.

    A positive terminal block is a great way to eliminate too many wires at the battery.
    Locate a spot behind the left side cover, where the fuse box is. You may be able to pull power from the cable connection to it from the battery.
    You can go to NAPA and get 1. By doing the accesory power supply block, the battery cable will be able to remain clean and tight.

    No, but now I'm adding yet another connection to the terminals, a Wolo Air Horn. Just to many wires going to the terminals and I'm concerned about losing a consistent positive connection, not to mention the unsightly mess of wires under the seat.

    Here is my solution, all five terminal blocks for $9.00 on EBay. Just search "motorcycle terminal blocks" and they pop up.
