Careful about calling parts stores and asking for posi-tap. Most likely, they will think you mean the blade-connector.

Hope this helps!

Thank you Sirs.
Lucky me, a friend of mine has a spare connector from his PC-5 installation and he will give it to me today. I just need one.

Just for fun take that bike to a dealer and say your having an intermittent electrical problem and ask if someone could have a look at it. Watching the mechanic look at it and watching his head expand then listening to him mumble under his breath before he says "no, I don't think I can help you" would be great entertainment! Maybe a hidden camera video from several dealers would be even better!

A friend gave me his surplus tap connector. It's really great one, compact and really easy to install.
Bought a 30Amps relay, fror approx $1.6.

Get the stuff toghether:


I removed the connector for relay to make more room under seat.


And also installed the combined switches:


Thanks guys for your info and guidance.

Wink same-same

I also used that panel and tapped the diagnostic tool, set up has been flawless for over 20k km.

This is how I set up my '13GSA

Right now I'm only using one of the two relays at the top of the picture. I will be hooking up the second one next week when I add a Baja Designs 8" OnX light bar to the bike.

Thanks, I probably walked away from that wiring job at least a dozen times because I didn't like the way it was coming together. After spending some time away from the bike I'd come back, stare at it for a while and try a different wire routing solution. I worked on that wiring job for about a week and a half. Most of that was waiting for parts but it was nice to have the extra time so I didn't feel rushed to get 'er done.

Marchyman,

Looking at installing my Fuzebock on my GSW. What did you tap into for key power?

Thanks/Alan
