Should I fit a battery isolation switch?

Recommended Posts

On my MV's, I always fit a battery isolation switch, so I was just wondering if the same thing is done on military motorcycles and if so what sort of component and how best to hide it, if needed.

Well as a theft proof device, it's pretty useless. I've never heard of anyone bothering to fit one to a bike. Just a fuse in the Poss cable. Ron

Ok, I wasn't thinking so much of theft, more battery drain and inadvertent short-out.

I've fitted little 10A blade fuses in all our G3l's,they don't seem to suffer any battery drain but I like the fuse being there in case of a direct short. Some people don't think they should be fitted,but things get very hot very quickly and with an open carb mouth it wouldn't take much...
