Black Dog Does It Again




An innovative NEW safety product from Black Dog Cycle Works

Most riders know they can never be “too visible”—whether they′re riding day or night.

In addition to filling a void in the rear frame, our side panels include an integrated Rigid Industries A-Series LED lights which blast out  200 lumens that not only allows you to be seen better during the day, but will broadcast your presence at night—extra safety to help prevent broadside collisions.

This is a must have for riders in congested traffic areas!!

As with any electrical accessory for the BMWs, we highly recommend wiring all accessories through a fuseblock in order to isolate them from the CAN-Bussystem. The best solution we have found is the FZ1 Fuzeblock.

We have done a LOT of wiring on virtually every motorcycle we have ever had, and I can tell you, this by FAR the slickest way to wire electrical accessories to your bike. Not only that, the flexibility if gives you to have accessories either switched or unswitched (always on) to the ignition is unparalleled. This product does not require the use of a relay making the installment INCREDIBLY easy. Run three simple wires to it and you are done. Very slick.

Fuzeblocks has designed a fuse block that is easy to install and fits into a small space. The on board relay offers the choice for any device to be switched on or off automatically with the vehicle or to be powered constantly.

With the FZ-1 in place you can power all kinds of motorcycle accessories including, but not limited to, auxiliary lighting, GPS, radar detector, CB/FRS/GMRS radio, heated grips, XM radio, audio mixers, intercom system and any other device requiring 10A or less. Any of these accessories can have constant or switched power by simply placing the fuse in the correct position for the power desired.

Installation for the FZ-1 fuse block requires no crimping. All connections are made by heavy duty screw terminals that can accept up to a 12 gauge wire. All the FZ-1 needs is +12VDC, ground and a +12VDC switched source to make it fully functional. The unique board layout provides six individually fused circuits that can supply constant or switched power for each accessory depending on your needs. Check out all the features the FZ-1 has to offer and you’ll agree that it makes powering your accessories easy.

Normally, to have switched and constant power for your accessories, two fuse blocks are required. One is wired directly to the battery for constant power and the second fuse block is wired through a relay for switched power. The FZ-1 eliminates the need to wire two fuse blocks by providing both types of power in one unit. It reduces the wiring by more than half and allows you to select what type of power you want for each output. The FZ-1 is easy to install, reduces the amount of wiring time required and is about the size of a pack of cigarettes. The unit is great for experts who want a simple installation and for novices who are electrically challenged.

Yes, this product is compatible with the can-bus systems on the BMW motorcycles.


TIP:  We recommend using a auto circuit breaker on the power feed from the battery on this unit.  See “related items”.

The side panels are simple to install and by wiring the Rigid Industries A-Series lights through a fuseblock, they turn off with the ignition.
