Default Wiring Advise - Forged Bar Mini Lights

I'm installing mini driving lights and one of the instructions says I need to connect one of their wires to a "keyed power source" . Does anyone have a suggestion for an easily-reached wire for this purpose? I'd rather not take off the fairing but, if I have too... thanks!

Reach under the left side of the gas tank near the front. There is a 2 wire connector that is used for driving lights taped to a larger wire bundle.

Good to know. I too am thinking about driving lights on my new 2016.

Wish I would have known this when I installed my lights. I went straight to the battery. Would have liked them to be switched, but I'm not going to do over now. Just have to make sure they're off when I shut the bike off.

You can always put blade connectors on the wires and plug them in.
