I want to install a fuse block so that I can better manage my accessories. Right now, I have a battery tender and an alarm.. I'll be getting a phone charger soon, additional lights for safety, and if all goes as planned, I'll be riding in the winter in D.C., so maybe heated gloves -Bbbrrrrr- (I'll make sure the sum of these don't overload the battery)
I spent a few hours yesterday trying to get this done and got stuck on this: Use the “Posi-Tap” to tap the yellow wire to a switched 12V power source on your motorcycle
. I think I get how
to do it.. it's the where
that gives me trouble. For example, I don't want to "tap" into anything that would risk my safety should something go wrong such as headlights, break lights, etc... so I decided the front right turn signal (though now I don't recall if it has enough power). I also saw a video of someone putting a wire directly into a fuse "the quick and easy way".. but that didn't seem safe, so I don't want to do that either.
So, first question... any opinions on whether the front turn signal is the best choice? Secondly, any advice on how I would go about locating that wire would be helpful.. I checked out the wiring diagram and researched how to read it (ha!) but it started getting late so I had to stop (at least that's my excuse for being overwhelmed!). I want to learn how to read it,
but something tells me it'll take a while to get it down and I don't want to wait to install my fuse block because right now, my alarm and battery tender are both disconnected.
