    From your pic

    it looks as though you could slide the Fuzeblock to the rear a bit and the seat will fit. I have a Centech block which fits partly under the frame member back there. It's fastened to the tray with Velcro, so I can pull it up and move it forward to work on if necessary.

    A tech tip for future farklers is to make up a dummy of what you're planning to install out of a piece of wood or foam to see whether it will fit. I had planned to use a different fuse block and found that my exact sized block of wood would not fit under the seat where I wanted it to. Moved along to plan B.

    Edit: Forgot to mention that I have a Corbin seat, too.

    One way to investigate these types of issues, is to use silly putty. Make a pancake and put it in the spot where you think the problem is, then mash the seat down as much as you can. Lift it up and examine how the silly putty got flattened, and based on that info you can figure out what you need to move, or what spot to attack with the dremel.

    I have a silly putty egg in my "gauges" drawer, right next to my rulers, multimeters, feeler gauges and torque wrenches.

    I order this fuse block today as a simpler way to add fused circuits and it uses the same mini fuses as the NT

    Here's one with 6 circuits:

    I plan to connect it directly to the battery post via a fused wire.
    Small, simple, cheap, no switched circuits though

    Add in a cheap $5 dollar relay and you can have switched circuits for $20! Can't beat that!

    Don't bother with fuse on main line to battery. That's what the block is for.

    And yes, a relay added to a second block gives you switchedand unswitched. You can drive the relay from the Accessory circuit honda provided under the left front fairing. That would have been my next project.

    You have to take off the left side fairing. It is tied to the frame rail on the left and may be taped as well. Sorry, I didn't take a pic when I had mine off.
