1200GSA fog lights harness on 1200GS

Hi, I'm planning to add fog lights on my standard 1200GS 05, mounted on the hepco tank crash bar (Adventure like), for this I got the complete OEM fog lights harness (relay, fuse, switch, cables, connectors) coming from a 1200GSA 06.
Could somebody help me with the following:
-What are the original locations/mountings for relay and fuse box and wires on the bike ? (a couple of pictures would help a lot).
-I've identified a 4 pins connector as the "entry point" of the OEM fog lights harness, I'm now missing where to connect on the bike principal harness, again a picture would help.
Thank you foryour help.
Cheers
J C

On a GS Adventure, the fuse box is located on the right front side of the fuel tank, under the black cover. There's a picture of it somewhere on the forum.

Can't help you with the relay and harness.

Found a pic:

So, I finally completed the mounting of the fog lights using BMW OEM stuff only (switch/harness/fog lights) from the Adventure on my standard 12GS.
Here are some pics:

AherreraGS: you can buy the harness from your BMW dealer, it is far from being cheap...
05 61127699826 wiring harness, auxiliary driving light BUY 1 $152.20
I've got a used one from ebay at much better price, but then you need to be patient, it is not a quick hunting.
Note that on my 05 GS, this harness do not plug straight into the bike main harness, you will have to connect the +/- power wires (feeding the relay contacts and the fog lights) to the battery, while the +/- command wires (feeding the switch and the relay coil) can be connected to the rear light to benefit from the CAN bus when switching on/off the bike.
May be the more recent GS's are already equipped with the right plug to directly coonect the fog light harness, to be checked...

rookierider: this is a LCD clock/thermometer which is powered by 12V for the temp. and gets light for night driving, a tiny battery is keeping the clock running while the ignition is switched off on the bike. I just replaced the original green lighting by an amber/orange one to match the light color from the main dashboard.
