8 gauge is huge as I've never seen one lager than 16AGW. Do you have a hyperlink from where you got it?
Yes, there is a link in my post. I just clicked it and it worked for me. If it doesn't work for you, the supplier is Del City, the item is a "ATC® & ATO® 6 Ganged Fuse Block".

I don't need 8 gage but this is the only one I found with one input and multiple outputs. It says the entire block is rated for 65 amps, but my guess is they think somebody will stick in six 30-amp fuses and try to light up the Eiffel Tower...so the heavier wire is insurance.

I was looking for something smaller, but couldn't find anything. I ordered one of these Friday. When I install, I'll follow up, with pics if I can figure it out...

I should have checked the link...my bad.
Wow, that's a big boy. I'll be curious to see how you're going to mount it and also weather proof it.
FYI, I'm all set up with a 16AGW and it works well with a heated liner and gloves.

@ DarD

Can you show me a pic of the one you are using?
16 ga would be fine, and 3-4 outputs would be plenty...just can't find one that matches that description.

This is the one I installed and came with my 3A Battery Tender. The wire is 16AGW which can handle 13A.
The stock fuse is 7.5A which I replaced with a 10A.

The Battery Tender was $54Can at Costco

Ring terminal Harness can be bought separately also.

You can also find an SAE splitter on the web

I was so excited to get home from work a couple Friday's ago that I left my bike on after using the kill switch to stop it. I tried bump starting it a couple times, but no luck and then I remembered this thread. I left my poor monster in a dead state for a week because this thread made me think it was going to be a royal pain in the ass to get to the battery. While it's not as easy to get to as my VFR or GSXR, it's definitely not as bad as some people have made it out to be.

It took me about 15 minutes to get it out and 10 to put it back in. I think the worst part of the entire thing was slicing the shit out of my hands on the plastic cover that goes over the forward grounding bolt. So, to anyone that sees this thread in the future and thinks it might be over their amateur wrenching head, it's pretty easy to do (especially using that Shorai install video).

And to think I almost just trailered my bike to the dealership to get the battery charged while I took care of my oil change service interval.

True - its not difficult and its a clever place to hide that heavy battery low down and away from the exhaust
