As I wait for a SS brake line to arrive, I had to go to the local dealer (I hate going there!) to get the washers for the brake line. The guy at the parts counter and I know each other pretty well and our wives work together too, so we started talking...

He asked me the year: 1981
He asked me the model: 1200 GoldWing... :shock:
He said: 1100, Honda didn't make a 1200 in 81.

I said: I know, I did. :BigGrin:

:smilie_happy:

Then we really got to talking.

I've had this nagging problem for quite some time, but just didn't do anything about it because I had too many other things going on. It was the Buss fuse block I installed.

Image

There was a lose connection internally that caused things to stop working when I hit bumps. Mostly it was just the lights that were cutting out, but since I now have the carb and fuel pump going through that fuse block, I needed to get it replaced.

Several weeks ago I ordered a Blue Sea fuse block and tonight I finally replace it.

Image

This fuse block is a much higher quality and looks bethere too.

Looks good Brian! I considered the same fuse block before I started the major fuse/relay panel change for my '82. The fuse block change by itself will be a great improvement, but I feel that the upgrades I am getting with the built in relays will be worth it.
