Having fitted HG (really Oxford) heated grips, which are fine, and a battery charger socket ('cos the old faired BM is sooo tempting this weather and the Alp gets left in the shed a bit more than it deserves) It occurred to me that there must be a tidy way of adding fused extra take-offs to my '03 Alp, maybe a fuse box from an old BMC Mini, otherwise I can see things around the Battery/main fuse getting very cluttered, which is not a safe thing.
Any ideas, please.

I went to my local part parts shop and bought a 4 fuse holder with the terminals underneath.
It fits perfectly next to the Rear Brake reservoir, One wire from the Battery to a block connector. This splits the feed to each of the terminals, all wires can be hidden in the storage box under the seat.

Thanks friends, you've got me thinking that if I get a 4 or 6 way fuse holder, ideally with concealed terminals, then maybe I can solder wires to bridge the inputs, and have just one feed from the battery.
Cheers for the ideas.

This is what I did, bought a cheapo 6 way fusebox & bridged 4 together for a switched supply, the other two bridged for perm live together then a bolt/wingnut for a common earthing point nearby.
All fits neatly (well no electrickery that I do is that neat......) under the r/h side panel.
