    Beaver Power Center 8 Placement

    I just got my Trophy and will soon be adding stuff like I do to all my bikes.  Many of the accessories will require power so I'm looking at the Beaver Power Center 8 as my first addition.  My question is simply, where is the best place to put it?

    Hi ladisney,

    I don't know that particular product, or its dimensions.

    I have a "Fuzeblock" which I have installed under the rider seat,
    and that works well for me.

    Cheers  :821:

    I put a fuse block under the seat as well, next to the little storage compartment.  Pick up a trigger source for a relay from one of the fuse locations that is only powered when the ignition is on (or one that only has power when the engine is running if that's your preference).

    The Eastern Beaver PC-8 is a great fuse block.  I've had one on my Rocket III for years.

    For the Trophy I went with the FuzeBlock and have it positioned under the rear seat.  There's a nice rectangle there that it fits into nicely.

    The Eastern Beaver PC-8 (great company BTW, I've bought a bunch of stuff from them) is about the same size as my PDM60, which I have mounted under the pillion seat, to the left side of the tray.

    The only problem with mounting fuse blocks on our bike is that the stupid battery is way up in front. To run power that far back, you should run a ~12AWG wire from the battery positive terminal (with inline fuse) to the fuse block. To run that wire where I wanted, I had to take off the gas tank, although, to be honest, I think I could have fed it around things without doing that.

    It took taking some panels loose at the top to get room to position it, but I put a flexible automotive wire protector from the battery back to my fuse block location and put the hot and ground wires inside it.  I used a separate multiple terminal ground block for each circuit on the fuse block.

    I bought a 2017 Trophy today but don't take possession till next week.  I downloaded a service manual today "Workshop Manual by Fiche-man" and on page 16.8 it says the battery is under the seat.  Or at least I think so on page 16.8 it says for all except models except Thunderbird.   

    I also have in hand an Eastern Beaver Fuse box, new Cyclops lights and a set of Bosch horns to install.

    Is there a better manual than the one I have?

    Thanks Ken

    Hi kirkkw,

    You have the wrong Manual for your new Trophy !

    I suspect you have downloaded a Manual for the previous Trophy Model.

    There are NO officially sanctioned electronic versions of the latest Trophy Model Service Manual.
    Any such copies you may find for download will be illegal copies in breach of Triumph's Copyright,
    and as we have seen before would not be allowed to be shared on this Forum.

    The correct Paper Manual, in Hard Backed Ring Binder, is available from any authorised Triumph Dealer,
    or On-Line from official Triumph Vendors such as Bike Bandit.com

    Cheers  :821:
