Denali PowerHub2 Power Distribution Wiring Harness Module
Waste of time and money. Skip it and buy a FZ-1
I love the idea of terminal blocks. They really do make everything better...when they actually work.
The PowerHub I bought was a dud right out of the box. Really something that filled me with confidence when faced with the prospect of installing a warranty replacement. I suppose I should be thankful for that because it gave me a reason to return it to replace it with a Fuzeblocks FZ-1, which is what I use on my other bike.
What don't I like about the PowerHub?
* The circuit board is attached to the base of the caseworks with a few tiny dots of adhesive, which will fail should you need to remove any of the fuses you've installed. I know this because that's exactly what happened to me...on the very first fuse.
* The design requires that you run each accessory's wiring harness into the box through an inlet port and then into an already crowded area of the box for installation. By comparison the Twisted Throttle block or the FZ-1 both offer direct access to the connection points from the outside of the box.
* Each wire is wrapped around a screw which is then screwed down. This isn't nearly as simple and effective as the clamp method used on the Twisted Throttle and FZ-1 blocks.
* The block itself is quite a bit larger than it needs to be.
* No actual fuses are included. Why would you sell a fuse block and not actually include any fuses?
Moral of the story: Avoid this thing like the plague. Buy a FZ-1 for the same amount of money and be a much happier person.

I purchased the Denali PowerHub2 along with the Denali D4 and Denali DM Lights by reading reviews like this, and I will have to say that I am more than happy with these products and are happy to recommend them. I have mounted these lights on my V-Strom, they not only look good but perform well too.
Only downside I can see is that the Fuses seem very tight in their slots and I don't know if they will come out easily.

Must have for adding EXtra electrical to your bike
2014 Suzuki Vstrom 1000, added this product and add GPS/Heated Grips/ and Lights. Recall from manufacture and they before looking at the bike stated recall voided I modified the bike, told them nothing modified from factory wiring harness, all was good. (Never use that dealer again).
So I rate Must have for adding on, easy to install and works great.

Overall this product is great and ideal for adding all those farkle parts you need power for, without the need to splice into your main harness or having a bunch of connectors on your battery. The option to select, permanent feed or ignition feed is also useful. My only gripe is, the 2 cords used to secure the top, these can be a little awkward.

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.

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..
