    I have a 2007 Mk1.
    I bought a Healtech Thunderbox for ďeasyĒ auxiliary power take-off.
    Whatís the best place to put the unit in the limited space under the seat, and whatís the easiest way to run the cable for a USB socket to the handlebars?

    On my 2009 Mk1, i found the best place to mount my aux fuse box was under the Upper left hand side / fairing not under the seat as running loads of additional wires up to the cockpit was easier and getting a switched supply from one of the sidelights  :028:  :7:

    Itís not an auxiliary fuse box: itís a  2 x 1 x1/2 inch box for aux power take-off, and is attached to the battery by ring leads. Thereís a block attached by a couple of leads, that the leads for auxiliary stuff like USB sockets go into.
    I then need a relatively easy route to take cabling for a USB socket to the handlebars.

    I think Richard will know exactly what you have and will refer to it as an auxillary fuse-box, as it does contain leads which are "fused" internally to the box for different power requirements of your auxillary items.
    Richard uses  boxes which do the same job on his bikes. Especially as he has lots (and lots!!) of accessories.

    If you place the box under the fairing at the front of the bike where most of your accessories I suspect will be fitted, and extend the red and black wires back to the battery then you only need to run the wires once. If you place the box near to the battery, each accessory you fit will then need the wires running back to the box so more work each time.  :028:

    Please accept my apologies!
    Extending two wires forward to the box does make much more sense.
    Thereís far more space at the front than under the seat, and I can stick it to the tank under the side fairing.
    More likely to be needing auxiliary power at the front of the bike too.
    Spots, USB, cigar lighter power take-off.
    Thanks for the help.

    Iíve had a shufti at the unit.
    Thereís plenty of cable on it to take it up the side of the tank to the inside of the side fairing.
    Iím going to have to take it off anyway to replace an indicator (the rubber had perished!!!), so 2 birds with one stone.👍
