Part: Glass Fuse 7.5A (amp) for Honda CL360, CJ360, CB360 & CB500T
Why You Need This: In the mid 70's Honda started to used a fuse box with multiple fuses. Motorcycles like the Honda CB360 and the CB500T use these old school glass tube 7A (amp) fuses for the head and tail of the bike; while a 15A (amp) fuse is used as a master fuse. Glass fuses like these used to be commonplace, however these days they are tough to find as modern cars have switched to plastic blade style fuses. As the 7 amp sizing is as good as obsolete we've been running these 7.5 amp fuses in our bikes for the better part of the decade as a replacement for the factory 7amp fuses. While these fuses are slightly longer than factory, they're still the proper length (30mm) and amperage rating glass fuses that will keep your Honda CL360 / CJ60 / CB360 and CB500T running safely. Sold in packs of five. We all know that having a few extra fuses is a good thing, especially when one pops on the side of the road (yes, it happens).
Note: CB550 K0 - K1, CB550 '76, CB750 K3-K8, CB750 F2-F3, and CB750AA ('77-'78) use a smaller fuse box that can barely close with our 7A glass tube fuses as they are 5mm longer than the original fuses used on these motorcycles. While they technically work and fit inside the contacts, the lid may need to be distorted or notched to make it fit.
Installation Tip: Clean the brass clip terminals in the fuse box with some rubbing alcohol and fine steel wool, be careful as the clips tend to be brittle and can easily break. If your motorcycle is regularly popping a fuse that means that you have a positive (12V+ DC) wire or terminal grounding out somewhere on the frame or wiring harness. Never bypass the fuse box it is there to keep from frying the electrical system on the motorcycle.
