If you hook it to the canbus, it will never work (and the bike will probably stop working).

the canbus is a set of twisted wires that connect the several computers together so they can communicate with each other (A canbus is a computer network).

What I think your confusing is the way BMW wired everything to the main computer. This computer feeds all circuits. Instead of using fuses, it has (electronic devices) inside it that sense the load. It can open a circuit if it sees more load then it expects, it can turn on a "bulb check" light if it sees less load then it expects.
