Recommendations for routing wiring front & rear?
I've got a bit of wiring to do on my new Wee.
Everything's going to run from fuse blocks in the storage area under the seat. I'm running wires to the handlebar area for GPS and radar, and to the below-the-handlebars area for horn and eventual driving lights. Also want to tap the high beam for my Autoswitch garage door opener. Figure I'll run everything now and just coil the extra for later installation.
To those who've taken things apart a time or two, I'm wondering if you have any recommendations on which side of the bike to run all this on, and what general path to follow. Something that won't be in the way when it's time to pull the tank, get into tb syncing, whatever.
Also I want to both tap the taillight wire (to switch the relay to my "switched" fuse panel) and splice into the brake light wire (to insert my brake light modulator). Is there somewhere these wires run that's especially close to the underseat storage area, and would make a good tapping point.
By the way, I should add that I refuse to use those scotchlock connectors. I've talked to a few BMW service guys who have tales of people who've tapped wires that way and had the scotchlock eventually break the wire. I usually heat a section of insulation with a lighter and peel it back, then twist on my wire and solder it, then tape the whole thing up really well. Never had a problem so far.
