    Identify 12v switched power wire

    Hi all, Bike is a Gen 1 2019 year.

    I need to locate a switched power source (wire) like head light, tail light, horn etc which is associated to the ignition - Need it to be located under the seat for ease of access as I am connecting a dash cam but don't have a schematic of the bikes wiring so don't know where or what the colour of the correct wire needed will be in the looms that are under the seat that are visible.

    Many thanks.

    if you put a load on one of the circuits then this might upset the canbus, which limits current on most circuits with tight margins rather than using fuses.

    the best option is to use something like a Thunderbox which does not need a trigger wire

    Hi - the dash cam I am fitting is a Innovv K3 and the kit comes with a unit that takes care of all of that.

    Just need to identify a switched power source.

    With the bulk of the units going under the seat and about 4 looms visible tapping into one of those is going to be the easiest - just need to know which colour wire and which loom -  :084:

    The cable for the optional rear din plug is tucked down the front left of the ABS pump. That will be suitable if it hasn't been used for the plug already... :028:

    I'm afraid my machine does not have that din plug unfortunately - so back to square one, wanting to find which colour coded wire can be a switchable source wire that's in the under seat area.

    The plug was optional, the wiring is standard. Should be there...

    I am pretty sure I have posted this many times before, here it is again. This turns off 30-60 seconds after key-off, and just to confirm this is a Gen 1 (2016 to be precise), under the seat just in front of the ABS module, you should see the 2 green relays

    Thanks to all for the info and the images.

    Can now get the Innovv fitted.

    Has anyone had or got experience of one of these
