View Full Version : Where to tap into for a keyed 12v?

I'm going to put my radar detector on the bike soon and would like to wire it up to a keyed 12v source so it automatically goes on and off with the bike so I don't have to worry about it. I was thinking of possible the little running light in the front since it's right there? I'm not sure if the the radar detector would strain that circuit too much or not though. Any suggestions?

radar detector shouldn't be too much draw for the light circuit. You can also look around for an unused plug.
Some kats have an extra turn signal type connector that isn't used.

My bike had an extra wire coming off the ignition harness that showed 12 volt when the key was on so i just used that for my radar detector. I would just test a any around that location and see if you can find one
