Just finished my accessory fuse panel for my GL500I. It includes fuses for the stereo, Electric fan conversion, and ground effects lighting as well as the relay for the fan and the power supply for the GE lights.

I have resisted opening up the crimp vs solder issue..;)
Im a firm believer that a good crimp is reliable....its used in light aircraft...my Cx from faired to "naked" was crimped.....
Its very neat as per other posts...well done
Cheers

Nice and organized I like!
Here on the wet coast of canada , I recomend Dielectric grease on connectors if you ride in the rain.

I use a bit of a combination of crimped and soldered. I tin the wires before I crimp the connectors. Makes the crimp much more solid.

I usually dip the wire in flux before crimping, and solder after.

If i Solder , I crimp the wire then Solder the end of the wiring sticking out on the connector end. That way the connector acts as a heat sink and you have a flexing wire than will withstand the vibration longer.
