    Fuse Block 1

    Can someone tell me or better show me a picture of how to release the front Fuse Block. I want to tap into either the Heated grips or Aux fuse switchable live to wire in my cameras. Maybe I just can't see the wood for the trees but I can't see how it detaches. Might just be a case of needing new glasses :017: :017:
    Keep it shiny side up and rubber side down

    There are spade connector adapters that will tap the hot side or the fused side of a fuse location to allow you to connect another wire very simply.  I used one to add a second 2.1A waterproof USB port up front for phone or GPS power.  I bought mine at the auto parts store, come in a package of ten I think.  I'll look for them and if I haven't already given them away and still have any of the extras I can mail you a couple.  PM me if you think that will work.  In the meantime I'll get a picture of mine and the connector to post for you.

    Trophied, I know itís been more than a year since last posting, but I wonder how you managed to get room for the tap? The mini flat fuse box just donít seem to have any room for more than the mini flat fuses.

    If not too much trouble, could you take a picture of the installation of the tap in the fuse box?

    Iíve just added a tow bar relay box and tapping into the rear light wire signals with solder sleeves, but wouldnít do that to a main power line from the fuse and there isnít much room to take of the tape isolation below the fuse boxes anyway.

    I really want to avoid running a new wire all the way from the battery and only have one main fuse on top of the battery.

    If I donít find a solution as yours, I was thinking of tapping into the rider din socket wire, this wire is protected by a 20A fuse (accessories)

    Thanks
    Mike

    I used that on my own fuse block, but if it won't work on the existing fuse block, try these:
    https://www.amazon.com/automotive-fuse-tap/s?k=automotive+fuse+tap

    Also available at auto parts and Walmart.

    I'm just about to have to leave to go out of town for the youngest's birthday lunch we promised him so I don't have time right now to take my seat off and get you a picture.  We're a little late already.  Hope this helps.

    Thanks Glenn, it could be nice when youíve got some time. I think I misunderstood your earlier posting as you tapped into the existing mini flat fuse box.

    I know these kind of fuse taps, very handy but requires some room in the fuse box, which you donít have on the existing fuse boxes and the Triumph engineers never imagined that someone would like to add more powered accessories on the Trophy and prepared at least one spare fuse holder. I always hate to splice into the existing wiring on a motorbike due to vibrations.

    So I just wondered how you managed to tap into a source.

    Thanks again
    Mike

    That's why I furnished the link.  Those can be had in standard or mini, different amp ratings and plug right into the socket with an extra fused lead off of them from the hot side for power to go elsewhere.  Available a lot of places and all over online.  That would be my pick to go into the existing Trophy fuse block.
