    Default Accessory line to splice into

    I have a C109r and need to tap into an accessory line for power so my radio will turn off when I shut off. How do I find it?

    I have seen several posts that recommend tapping into the running signal of the tail light or front blinkers.

    I would recommend getting a fuze block

    Then you isolate your accessories. Tap from battery and ignition.
    If you tap from signal light, and you blow a fuze, you no longer have back brake and signal lights or speedo....dangerous situation.

    Wire directly to the battery, and use an inline fuse. That's how I wired my air horn.

    ........yes this for sure.

    Exactly how I have all the assorries on my bike wired up.

    The fuzeblock keeps everything isolated and individually fused and you have the choice keep each circuit "hot" all the time or have each circuit individually energize when the ignition is turned on. You select this simply by where you plug the fuse for each circuit into the buss.
    The fuzeblock keeps things nice and tidy in one place so you don't have a lot of individual fuses floating around on your bike.

    Tapping into your wiring harness all over the bike is never a good idea, it rats up your bike and eventually becomes a troubleshooting problem if you do.
