I have not installed that voltmeter, but...
You can run small wires. The voltmeter (like all good voltmeters) has a high input impedance and therefore draw almost no current.
But... It does draw some current so I would not recommend attaching it straight to the battery because it, of course, will pull juice from the battery all the time.
As far as where to connect; put it on a circuit that is 1) switched on with the key and 2) doesn't have a heavy load like the headlights on it..
to build your own V-Strom GPI and save, save, save!
