    Mark....... when I got my SEI, there was no fuse box! A previous owner had installed several in line fuses. I bought and blade style fuse box on EBay, with a snap on, clear cover. It is about 1” X 4”, lots of fuse locations, and fit in the original space. I actually cut a piece of hard wood (about 3/4” thick) and after sanding and painting it black, mounted it directly under the fuse box. This added spacer makes the fuses much easier to reach. Next time I am working on the bike I will take photos.

    The fuse box was so inexpensive, I think I ordered three. I used another one somewhere else, but I think one is still around, if I can find it, i’ll Take a few photos of it too.

    Thanks!
    Yes, the sei I just bought has no fusebox- and no fuses either. The wires are jumped right across...

    I’ve looked around a bit for boxes, but so far most do not seem to have ‘feed through’ design, but a master buss that feeds all the fuses.

    thanks for the help.

    This looks like it Mark but there are loads with the straight through design.

    Thanks.
    I did a search on eBay and did manage to find a bunch with straight through.
    ‘my model has 9 wire connections, although only 4 are fused.
    I probably going to do the EnDuralast alternator upgrade, so a few of those would likely be replaced.

    appreciate the help!

    Mark...... Here is the photo of my “spare” box that I purchased on EBay. The holes almost lined up with the studs on the original fuse box mounting plate. I slotted them with my Dremel tool, and it slid right on. It was so deep in the frame, that I shaped a piece of hard wood (about 3/4” thick) to slip under the fuse box as a spacer (painted it black, virtually unseen). The box is well made, came with about 20 fuses, and 20 terminal connectors. From memory, it was less than $5! It works perfectly and I only used 4 locations. The others hold “spare” fuses. Next time I am in the shop, I’ll photograph the installation........ Cheers, John D.

    Mark ...... here is a photo of the actual installation. The 5th, extra fuse is in use to accommodate my Sasche Electronic unit. The bottom, is a spare. If you look closely, you can see the wooden spacer, it is more like 1/2” thick and just makes the cover more accessible. Cheers, John D.Ready to Ride: 1977 Benelli 750 SEI.
