My GW has neither CB Radio (no desire for one) or CD Changer (because I use XM Radio and MP3 Player). I wanted easy access to fuse block but did not want to mount it directly to cavity floor. I decided to mount the fuse block on a “support tray lift panel” that rests upon the two molded-in sidewall “shelves” of the sub-floor cavity. Apparently, these are shelves upon which the stock OEM divider panel would rest dividing the lowermost CB cavity from the uppermost CD Changer cavity, if the bike is so equipped.

In this fashion I can store small-item “stuff” adjacently next to the fuse panel in the upper cavity, as well as lift up the tray panel for access to store small-item “stuff” in the lower cavity underneath the tray panel.

Photo shown with the ‘09 GW s trunk floor removable cavity cover lid removed for photo.

FZ-1 Fuse Panel and a 12V power accessory socket installed onto the lift-up tray panel.

A flat-lying swing-up D- ring was used as finger- pull to lift tray panel upward to access storage compartment underneath the tray.

I used a “Casco” 12V power outlet obtained from Wal-Mart for rough cost of $8 - $9. Have seen identical outlet in auto parts stores under brand name “Bell”. Spring-loaded protective cap cover is quite strong and presses against side body of an accessory power plug inserted into power outlet, thereby helping to hold the power plug very tightly & securely in socket to aid reliable electrical contact.

I also picked up a triple-socket 12V power panel from Wal-Mart attached via industrial grade Velcro to center of main trunk rear wall. (See pics on next page). Power wire runs under trunk carpet mat and CB-CD cavity lid, plugs into socket on tray panel, thereby tripling 12V power supply in main trunk, with total of four 12V accessory sockets in trunk for approx $25 cost. When the triple-socket power panel is not needed or not in use, if-as desired, I can simply pull it off the trunk wall Velcro and stash in the CB-CD cavity, either above or below the fuse panel tray.
