Nice new moronic catch phrase albie!

Well, you know how sneaky some dealers can be... Hook you with one known great bike and send you home with an evil one. The old bait and switch routine ;-).

Just kidding!!!!

Nice looking stable of thoroughbreds.

Someone has to know this! Help a brother out!

I'm not with my bike now or I'd send you a picture. Just take your headlight off - super easy and fast and it should be easy to spot 2 sets of leads back there.

One of them is always hot and the other is tied to the ignition meaning it only has power when the key is on.

I assume you mean the physically empty spot in the fuse block... While it is handy that there is a pair of accessory leads behind the mask, I have designs on that open spot too.

Surely someone can sell me the bits to wire it up.... But in what catalog to start????
