Wiring fused led auxillary lights

I am trying to figure out how to run my auxillary lights so they turn off with the ignition switch. I am afraid with my current setup I will forget one time and kill my battery. Anyone know how to do this? The lights have a hot wire that should be easy enough for setting this up. Just cant figure out if I should try to remove the fusebox and wire it into the back or what?

There are 2 accessory power outlets behind the headlight mask. ACC1 and ACC2 - one is switched, but I can't remember which, but it easy to try and see.

Thanks. The book for the 13 calls for the same torque values. Though both upper and lower triple clamp bolts "felt" like they had been torqued the same and to a higher value than that when I removed them. May have been the dry threads.

Now that we have solved the issue as to how to mount bags ....

Here is an interesting article as to how the red and yellow dots on a tire correlate with the rim....this is true for bikes as well as cars/trucks:

12 nm = 106 in/lbs
17 nm = 150 in/lbs

Work gave me a conversion calculator application on the PC-an uber handy thing to have loaded.

Any other conversions anyone needs?

dividing by 12:

12 nm = 106 in/lbs = 8.83 ft/lbs
17 nm = 150 in/lbs = 12.5 ft/lbs

Math is hard.

Is that the same conversion for Canadians? So how many beer cans do we drink first to crush?
