Where Can I find Electrical Parts for Adding Accesories?

I'm looking for parts in order to have my accessories turn off and on with the ignition rather than my current set up of direct to battery on my 1000. I'm just wondering if there are any schematics out there and vendors that would carry the proper plugs. I want to make this as much "plug and play" as possible.

A search on the forum should give you all the schematics you need.

The secret is really deciding which electrical connection you want to use to either power one accessory or to power a relay controlled fuse box if you want several outlets.

Eastern Beaver.com should have all the parts you need for wiring.

Blue Seas is a fairly common choice for fuse box but there are others.

I was able to find some waterproof molex plugs that work very good from an agriculture place, price was good.
Anyway, I just sent this link to someone else here. I did the fuse box install with relay, two 12 volt outlets and voltage moniter, I also showed the power I ran to my tankbag. I ensured I linked all parts and how too's to the source. I used a different fuse box that the blue sea. Many like the blue sea box and I see many of them on all stroms. I am just more of a space junkie, and like one off installs and fabrication. Anyway, this may be a good spot to start for ideas and vendors of materials.
Holler if I can help in any way.

I guess what I am looking for are plugs that I can plop in between electrical connections..like between the tail light plug for the relay. I will check out Eastern Beaver and see if they have anything like that. I would prefer to make a harness that I can just pull out when/if I sell the bike.

I posted allot of my favorite link here last year for all strom parts and projects I was looking at. I researched many electrical places as well.
This may save you allot of time and effort, particularly if you use dail-up.

I got my electrical components at Sesquhana Motorsports/www.rallylights.com high quality Hella components, takes up only 1/4-1/3 of the space of most prewired units

Right now I have 2 relay sockets with room to expand to 4 relays in a gang adjacent to my 6place fuesblock, ground strip is from radio shack bolted to the battery stice of the vertical side of the trunk storage space
fuseblock & relays take up a 2" square, and like I said, when I add lights, I got room for 2 more relays within that square



wire chases thru panels are rubber grometed to prevent chafing of insulation

I did not tap or cut into the wiring harness anywhere, the relay trigger for the power is pluged into the switched power wire (orange & white ) in the dealer test plug with a male mini spade terminal

Pretty cool place, I was surprised to see they used my fuseblock pictures in their website. I'll be damn!
