Re: darmah fusebox.

got 3 auto circuit breakers mounted on my ssd. bike came with them I`ve had no trouble ,and previous owner(14yrs) had none either. they sit side by side where old fuse assembly sat.they have posts on them so have to fit ring terminals on cables, they are auto resetting.

the last time mine failed on a 900gts i once owned i by-passed it. you could start it without a key but the lights wouldn`t work unless the ignition was on. it was like that when i sold it 7 years later.
