Denali PowerHub2 Power Distribution Wiring Harness Module
I had it recently installed on my bike, so the only thing running on it is a set of additional aux lights, so really should not be posting a review just yet. Installed under the seat and it was a perfect fit. We'll see how it goes with time.

Installed on G650GS
Easily installed on my 2013 G650GS
Placed under seat where tool kit was; wired to battery and read tail light for intermittent power.
Running LED lights and USB Charger.
Should work great

Great product - cleaned up my wiring nicely!!
I needed to clean up the wiring on my 2013 Honda CB500X. I am running aux. lights, heated grips, heated jacket, and battery monitor. The battery post bolts were not long enough to hold everything. Also, all items were live at all times. The Denali Powerhub allowed me to move these items off the battery and by simply installing the fuse in the correct spot, determine whether the accessory would be live or switched. My bike wiring is now neat and organized and most of my accessories run on switched power.

Solid idea, decent execution
I love the idea. I have installed this into my 2014 Triumph Tiger and expect it to save a lot of dicing and splicing. Install was simple and straight forward. I picked up a box of mini fuses from Harbor Freight and had no issue with the cover going on as others have expressed. The blades are freakishly tight the first time or two and I was a little worried about cracking the PCB but it has held solid. However, having said that the PCB was hot glued to the case which broke free so now its just sitting in there which I do feel for the price as many others have said it could have been more solidly built. The straps that hold the cover on are elastic with knots in them. I haven't had an issue with them breaking but they are easily replaceable if they do. (Others have complained of this.) The main wires are nice multi-stranded flexible wire so routing was easy and I have no doubts that the wire can handle any load you throw at it. Im not sure if they have modified the port for the wires as a number of people have complained about running wires though the whole and I had no issues. I can see if you fill the box maybe some issues with lots of large wires but so far all I have is my Zumo GPS and charger. I will be adding lights eventually as well.
All in all, great product that does what its designed to do. I would recommend this. I am actually considering one for my Miata..

More issues with space on the F800 GS...
There is no room under the faux tank of the F800 GS. There is space right at the back, underneath the seat toward the tail light, but some of my farkle wires couldn't reach that far.
So, I ended up placing the unit under the seat, where the suspension tool is located. This will work for now, but I don't want to leave it here long term, as it may begin to move around when on bumpy offroad surfaces.
The unit was easy to install and then running all of my farkles to it, was easy. There's not a lot of room to get the wires in, and I only have 3 of the slots hooked up. I couldn't tie my new Denali D4 lights in to the PowerHub2, because the wires for the lighting unit are just too large. So, the lights are going straight to the battery.
Very happy with this unit and it has cleaned up my battery area. One minor nit, is that trying to get the fuses in place was a little tricky as the slots were just so tight. I thought I was going to bend and break one of the connectors, but thankfully did not.

Falls a little short
The PowerHub2 does the job but I had one annoying design flaw I believe is also commented on in another review. There are enough position for 6 fuses and 6 ground wires. Try and pass 12 wires through the one opening and turn the corner to the terminals where they have wires for the relay is a major problem and bows the cover out real bad. I fumbled with a configuration multiple times to get something reasonable but it's way to cramped, and I only wires 8. They need to cure this problem for a perfect product. It's even evident of the problem in the second product picture. The yellow, red, and black wires cross right in front of where you need to turn the corner with 12 wires to mate the terminals....good luck.

Happy with purchase
Bought this with a Denali Soundbomb horn. Already hooked up horn, a headlight relay, and battery charger pigtail. Will likely add aux lights and power socket in the near future. Fit and finish is good. Too soon to know about durability yet.
Toughest part was trying to find a suitable spot on the bike to install it. No fault of Denali about that.
Would have no issue recommending to friends. As a matter of fact, I already have.

Best overall product on the market, but with issues
A good overall product, flexible and compact. Will still recommend it. I had a couple issues with the design & implementation.
- the fuse holder design is so tight, I pulled the whole circuit board off when first removing one during the install. Now have to put one finger on a fuse, to remove another.
- The relay power source (+12V switched connection) requires a significant amperage to trigger the relay, so not all sources (such as diagnostic port connections) will drive the relay. Took me a while, and running a separate source wire, to make this connection.
- won't support a high amperage fused connection - the Denali Soundbomb air horn (requires 20A, with a 30A fuse). Max supported amperage per circuit of the Powerhub is 15A, with a 30A total through the relay. Would think that this manufacturer of both products would have considered this and increased the per-circuit support to 20A. OK, sure, a horn is momentary, but the specs are there for a reason.
