Thumbs up

I got mine today too, ditto what Gnepig said...

Looks good and sturdy, and the sealed cover is really nice.

Thanks again!!

Quality is Job 1 !

Hey folks,

Glad they are measuring up or exceeding Xpectations!

I wanted to post this addendum of instructions, I'll post/edit it to the earlier message as well that has my email/paypal account name in it!

A few folks, possibly not familiar with the PAYPAL system, and also didn't realize that the FORUM automatically
"parses"=formats my account name as an actual email link!!
It wasn't supposed to be a LINK to my Paypal account, just wanted to provide the EXACT spelling/description so when folks accessed THEIR Paypal account, and then selected to send $$, they would have the proper spelling/format of my account to bring it up as a verified PayPal account!!

I've already sold 11 of the 12 batch, but have already ordered and received another 7 more, as I said, I'll be keeping a running inventory!!
T.C.

Sssshhhh, you'll have the TRIPLES Wanting them, next!! :p

Hey Chevy,

Sounds great, post away!! Can you tell me how many are interested?? It only takes Del City a couple of days to process and ship them to me...they have a center in NC, just across the border, so IF I have them in stock, the turnaround will be almost immediate. However, IF I get a run of orders and run out of stock on hand, and it's near the weekend, then it'll be a few more days before I can get the replacement stock to be able to fill the orders.

Just have them tell me they are from the XJ list, so I won't be worried about NOT recognizing their forum handle!

Glad to be able to help other bikers save some $$!
T.C.

Update on use of this fuseblock!

I've heard from a couple of folks with XJ's, Trbig and Maxim4Rob, and they have stated that there isn't enough room for the block UNDER the XJ's side cover!?

I didn't realize this!! I think the technique that they had thought about was screwing it on top of the old fuse holders plastic base, which is attached to the metal block base!

My thoughts are now for XJ owners to remove the old plastic glass fuse holder, and mount the new block a bit deeper into the metal base. Might need to cut a bit more metal out of the base where the wires fasten to the block to prevent contact and shorting out against it, along with shrink wrap or other insulation around the wire/female clips that fit onto the fuse block pins!

Sorry I don't have any photos to show this technique!

I've got an XJ and mounted mine on top of the TCI on a bracket that mounts to the TCI mounting holes.

There is plenty of room onder the seat for this!!!!!

A new fuseblock location!

Hey Louis,

That's definitely an alternative to the under the side cover location, thanks for the idea.

This also a test reply, an Xsive reported having problems posting replies, so testing things out!

Before "I" blow a fuse!

Hey Brant,

Here they are, provided you haven't changed your turn signals to LED's, then you could use a lower rating!

Fuses: Left to right
Taillight=10A
Headlight=10A
TurnSignal=20A
Ignition=10A

Haven't changed anything T.C. and that'll work(too lazy to look it up) as was going to tag cover accordingly, and that leaves one slot open for a spare.......Thanks..

Playing the slots!

That Spare slot could be used for the MAIN fuse that's on the left side of the bike!? The one I put on mine a few years ago only had 5 slots, and it got used for the AUX terminal!! I'm thinking about swapping it out with one of these 6 slotted ones, and routing the MAIN FUSE thru it!?

Stopped in Pep Boys after work today. They had a littlefuse fuseblock of obvious lesser quality for twice the price.
Couple questions : Are ATO fuses the correct ones; and does anyone know what gauge our wiring is, at the fuseblock, for getting the right slip on connectors?
