xr650r dc conversion - anyone using a bus bar ?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to convert my xr650r to full DC power and was wondering if anyone here was using a terminal bus bar ? something like this one : https://www.amazon.com/DSC-TB01-Terminal-Block-Splits-Input/dp/B005K49NMW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1510464051&sr=8-2&keywords=bus+bar&dpID=310kVzto9uL&preST=_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

I'm looking to make the wiring a bit more simplified if possible, and have a single organized place like this that everything can connect to and run to battery would be incredibly useful.

Thoughts ? Suggestions ?

I use this type of bus/fuse block when I wire boats. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000THQ0CQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1510466108&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=blue+sea+fuse+block&dpPl=1&dpID=51%2B5nXsWtYL&ref=plSrch

I use it just as you described. The type of bus you posted is what I typically run on the ground side since it is not covered to prevent shorts.

So will the one I posted work for my application for DC converting my xr650r? I'm going to draw up a diagram and hopefully get some input prior to beginning the project.

I suppose it will but do you really need 9 individual circuits? You will most likely have to run all new wiring to make it work like that. But it can be done.
