So itís 8mm thread bobbins Iíd need?
It depends on the year of your bike  :031:

Mk1 & Mk2 bikes (2007 to 2014) need M10 Bobbins

Mk3 & Mk4 bikes (2015 to 2022) need M8 Bobbins

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.

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:

Thanks everybody.
The midges will never be able to keep up 😁

I believe that the Scottish midge has inbuilt telepathy so they can warn their many cousins to watch out for you stopping, wherever that might be (You must stop for a break sometime!).

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.

A tale of a Yorkshireman's mistake.

I had been out for a drive into the metropolis of Leeds. I don't often get into the city, I live out in the sticks.

I recalled buying a pair of gloves and a new Arai at J&S over 20 years ago and thought that, since I was close by, I'd call in and take a look around... it was in the run up to Christmas and I still had to find a present for my wife... where better to start?

J&S in Leeds had moved across the road into a real swanky new building.

I don't know if it was the bright lights of the showroom or the unfamiliarity of large shops to a country bumkin, but I only went and picked out a new pair of gloves! A bit rash I thought... on the way to the till, I saw these Oxford bobbins. A quick check on Google for the size and I had these too.

I don't know what had come over me - two impulse buys within two minutes of walking in the shop.

It was at this point I received text orders for Christmas food shopping "if I had time" or in other words- GET OUT OF THE MOTORCYCLE SHOP NOW. Charming.

I returned to the car a little disheartened. I'd only seen a small amount of their vast stocks.

When I got to Aldi, I decided that I couldn't cope with using my phone as a shopping list, so copied it onto the only spare piece of paper I could find - my new bobbins box - opened out. 'No sweat' I thought, as I knew thew would fit.

Google lies!

These 10mm x 1.25 bobbins are no use to me, but having already used the box as a shopping list AND applied some blue thread lock to one of the set screws, there's no chance of returning them.

I have bought some 8mm bobbins for my bike and I'm trying to recover as much of the initial expenditure as possible.

They cost me £15.99... please take pity on a poor lad.

Collect if you like,  Bobbins are in Settle,  North Yorkshire BD24 area.

I also made my own bracket out of ally as the Oxford one rusts. Hope these links to the gallery work!
