GL1800 or 1500?? I don't know much about the GL1800, but on the 1500 you don't need to change any fuses for an alternator upgrade.

What bike do you have. If it's a 1500 that's stock.

Did you get the Compufire 90A alternator?
The Compufire comes with 2 new 55A dog bone fuses with longer screws and washers to put a space between the fuses which makes it a 110A fuse. And yes you do need that protective barrier for your bike's wiring safety.
