Rider 550 Basemount wiring

Hi,

I'm currently wiring up my 550 rider base mount. I'm just wondering whether the cable supplied is fused as I can't see anything on the cable side unless its embeded into the connection collar or somewhere into the base itself. Does anyone know if it does? Or do I need to add an in line fuse separately?

Thanks

    Hi
    @shibbycribby
    Welcome to the site
    I have fitted a 1Amp Inline fuse on my setup
    The Mount is fused with a difficult to replace surface mounted fuse on the Printed Circuit Board....

    Don't use an earthing point on the forks or the headstock you may/will get a lousy Earth Connection back through the Head Stock Bearings....

    Thanks YamFazMan, so you think 1 amp should be enough? I've read different numbers on the amp draw the tomtom needs to draw. I was going to earth back at the main earthing points under the seat on my bike so shouldn't be an issue on that front. Seems strange TomTom doesn't include a proper replaceable fuse as part of the standard cabling considering the cost of the unit.
