Totally Wired Cycles DSR-015 Weatherproof ATO Fuse Upgrade Kit
Up for review today is the DSR-015 Weatherproof Main Fuse Upgrade Kit for the Kawasaki KLR650 provided by Tammy of Totally Wired Cycles.com (TWC).
The KLR650 has 2 drawbacks regarding the stock main fuses-
This kit will remedy this shortcoming, replacing the stock fuse holder with 2 weatherproof Blade type fuse holders in a easily accessable location.
Here's the business end of the weatherproof fuse holders. Notice the orange gasket that keeps the water out -
To prepare the KLR for the installation, I removed the rear side covers, seat, front radiator side covers and the fuel tank. This will provide unrestricted access to the KLR's wiring & frame for installation.
Using an awl, I marked the mounting hole positions and drilled the two 1/4' mounting holes. These locations will ensure that the fuse holders do not interfere with the kickstand switch.
Next, I mounted the fuse holders to the cover using the supplied stainless steel hardware. Here are the mounted fuse holders compared to the stock fuse holder-
Then I routed the wires through the frame to the stock fuseholder location and connected the new fuseholders to the existing wiring.
Here are the connections-
I put the KLR back together and installed the newly modified starter relay cover.
Look at how easy it is to get to these fuses with the cover turned around! All you need is a phillips head screwdriver to access the fuses.
And here is the cover all buttoned up-
This is a true "Plug & Play" upgrade that I highly recommend for any KLR650!
I rate this kit as a 9 out of 10.
