12v power later airheads

I was trying to find easy 12v power source on my 95 PD - didn't want to cut, splice, use scotch lock, etc. If your bike has the pigtail tucked up by the coil for clock you'll find a ground, an unswitched 12v and a switched 12v. I chose the switched 12v as i am running xm radio. I went to ground at the ignition module top bolt with a simple ring terminal.

The easy way to hook up to the connector if you don't have the connector half from a clock is to strip about 1/4 " insulation off your hot wire from your accessory, and then "tin" it with solder (so now you have a wire coated with solder). file it carefully so it's the perfect diameter to plug into the female - only took about a minute. Very secure and cover with tape. All easy to remove and no damage to original bits.

I will post pics of my XM radio install on a separate thread tonight.
