I'm not a fan of hacking into the harness in any way, build and auxiliary power supply, one connection to battery for all accessories, use relay to power up when bike is on so you don't have accidental drains for fergitting to shut something off
trigger wire can connect with male plug into switched power lead in dealer test plug
no need to hack, no need to compromise insulation of any wires in harness
Thats sounds good, whatever you said..lol.. I can see where it would be nice to have a PC8 or comparable like you mention. I could only get three terminal connectors onto the posts. They were too short to get all 4 (GPS, Tender, Heated Jacket, 12v outlet).
But I did get my GPS installed and working. Seems if someone says it is a 5 minute install it would be 45 minutes for me..1 hour job, 6 hours for me lol.
And I must admit that all this plastic may give a nice look, but is a pain for working on bike. I was able to lift the tank a couple of inches only by not having to take anything off except the black side panels.Just enough to fish a wire back to battery.
To hook up something like you mention above, where do you tap into wires, must be behind all that plastic I assume.
Look forward to learning lots on here, doubt I'll be able to contribute much.
Anyone have any idea what size bolt is in the terminal post? I didn't want to drive to store again to get a longer bolt, so I just hooked the 3 things up.
