Need On-bike Key Switched Power Access Recommendation
« on: February 06, 2019, 03:52:42 PM »
HI Folks,

I'm looking for an easy tap for switched power for a radar detector I'm going to add to my XR.  I'm not electrically inclined so any Layman's guidance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Obviously the RD will be at the front of the bike, but my hard wire kit has a fairly long wire so just looking for the easiest access point.  I do want the power to the RD turned off when the bike is off, so I prefer a switched point.

Thank you.

Speedy, take a look at my post - "autocom fitment" its only a couple down the list but I asked exactly the same question and there are a few pictures identifying the wire you need - works perfectly with no canbus errors

How about just plugging it into the accessory socket on the front left insert??

Thanks Guys.

I just checked out the other thread Shawry.  Hopefully I can figure out what Redrick is suggesting.  Any idea what the best ground to use in the area is?

I really want to have this hardwired rather than plugged into the outlet - just cleaner I guess.

You could just use the switched live and earth provided under the seat for the optional rear socket (as I mentioned in the other thread), no need to cut into any other cabling; that's what it's there for. Assuming you don't want it for the optional accessory rear din plug.  :028:

I tapped into the accessory plug under the seat and it could not have been easier.  Figured if I was going to foul something up, I'd rather it be an unused accessory plug rather than some important wire that is vital to the bike's normal operation. 

Thanks for the tips guys.
