Well, I installed the Power Block and an EC Ground Block yesterday, rerouted all my accessory wires to the blocks and got nothing when I turned the bike on. Confirmed the ground block wasn't the problem by short lining the ground to the ground on the accessory connections on the fuse block. Then applied pwer to one light by short line to bypass the power block and it worked. As I purchased it from Wingstuff, it will be a couple of days before I hear back, but I'm not happy that I'll have to now deinstall the one in the bike and then install a new one. Routing the power block is a pain in the backside!

Oh, and maybe it is just me, but this New Year so far sucks the big one - my desktop PC also gave up the ghost yesterday... :mad:

" Sympathetic malfunction of non-contiguous devices . " ~ Lee's Law. Sorry to hear it Sparky. What does this unit look like ? And never, ever, forget: If you go it alone you have no one to blame but yourself; if you share it with another you can blame the failure on him.

Rapier, Are you talking about the Auxilary power plate that allows for hookup for extra devices?

If so the problem might be only in the relay. It may not be in the socket right or the relay bad itself. They are a $10 item certainly not worth taking the bike back apart.

PM me if you want to chat about it.

I'm not familiar with this power block. Is there a relay on the power block ??. If so does it click when turn it on ?. If there is a relay and it doesn't click when power is turned on then either the relay is bad or the relay is not getting power.

It does have a relay. You should hear, you can even feel it click when power is applied. I'm betting 12 volts from the battery is applied to the relay contacts with that large red wire. Then there is a trigger voltage that is applied to the relay coil when the key is turned on latching the relay and passing the 12 volts from the battery to the power block.

Thanks for the advice, Ron! When it gets warms enough for me to be out without looking like Nanook of the North, I'll check to see if that click is occurring.

I started a rewiring job on the wing before Christmas, then it got coooold, the wing looks like it was in a wreck, parts all over that part of the shop but have not been able to or want to work on it since, It is supposed to warm up for a day or so then get cold again. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get it done before spring.
