Try to think ahead tho. If you are going to add more accessories, which is where I'm at, you may be better off mounting a fuse box some where.

For instance, I'm running GPS, heated clothing both off the battery. The dyna points thing is running off, I think the black wire on the coil which is switched (I installed the thing and can't remember. How sad is that?). But I'm also planning on an Acewell speedo and Baja Designs race light, and a power outlet for charging the cell and ipod. Also, some one added heated grips and I have no idea how they are wired. So I got fuses and wire every where.

Point being, you don't want to start tapping into the switched wiring which was only intended to run a couple OEM things without upgrading the wiring gauge. I'm going to clean up my mess with a fuse a box that is powered or grounded (depending on how the wiring is) from a switched source.
