The '85 GL1200 Interstate is my third 'Wing (after '78 and '79 GL1000s) which had nothing (ever?) wired to the Auxilliary terminals at the main fuse block.

I added lower fairing built-in lights (called by some cornering or driving lights -- I think originally from a 1500). I had exchanged the two original 50 watt halogens for two 25 watt bulbs (still gives good light with half the load). I read somewhere NOT to wire extra lights to the Auxilliary terminals -- but rather run a separate, new line (with fuse and relay) from the battery to the extra lights. That's what I did.

As I recall, there's a 10 AMP fuse in the Auxilliary fuse slot worth about 120 watts for something. So then, what kinds of extras are usually added to it (radio? CB? intercom?). I figure that's where I'll wire some extra low energy amber (front) and red (rear) LED side markers and fork lights.

Anything else?

I use the ACC for powering relays, driving lights, heated clothing, light bar etc, cruise control, air horn.
My GPS and mp3 player are fused but live all the time,
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
