I need to wire up a couple of things and I can't figure how to get into the accessory attachment point of the fuse box. One of the things is the Russell seat heater. It gets and little too warm and the people at Russell say the problem is that I'm now wired directly to the battery and I'm getting too much voltage.
So, what's the trick? Thanks in advance. John

The fuse box has resistors? What voltage does the Russell stuff run on? Not 12 volts? I would return it if it doesn't run on 12 volts. I feel it will just burn out to quickly if it runs on 6 volts. What other voltage does M/C accessories run on?

The seat runs on 12 volts. The power at the battery is unregulated and is probably 13-14 volts from the alternator.

The voltage on the battery is the same voltage everywhere on the bike. It's all regulated. For the support group to tell you different is absurd. You get the same voltage at the fuse panel or going directly to the battery.

With a little help from a bike mechanic, we bought a ceramic poteniometer, fashioned a bracket from plexiglas, and mounted it to a bolt near the fuse box.
Now it is adjustable.
