Default Where to get Switched Power Source ??

On my CCT I am wiring in an auxiliary fuse block for powering add-on accessories. The fuse block will be powered via a relay off the battery that will be activated by a switched power source.

The wires behind the headlight are a medusa's head and I'm not sure which of any of those wires would be a good one to use. Have also thought of running a wire off the ignition switch.

Anyone got any info / suggestions / pics of what would be the best and simplest source for switched power?

OK, not getting any specific info here so I went ahead and figured it out myself.

For others who may want to know, I tapped into the BROWN wire coming off the IGNITION SWITCH.

Inside of the headlight (for most models, or fairing for XC and Vision) there is an auxiliary 12V power connector. It is hot when key is in the ON position, and it loses power as soon as key is turned OFF or to ACC position. I tapped my navigation system to that.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Is this connector labeled? I did not see it. Any chance you can further assist with ident of it?

Unfortunately it is not labeled, and it's a different connector type for the different model years. For some it looks identical to the high beam or low beam connector. For others it's a different connector type. If you could take a picture of your "spaghetti" I could probably point it out for you. If not, look for a (quoting from memory) black or dark gray plastic connector, with a green plastic cap around its center two connector holes.

By the way, do you have a voltmeter handy?

I have a multi-meter.

The "spagetti" is even worse now as I have been adding wiring for driving lamps, GPS, Sirius XM, etc and I'm still in the process of cleaning that up and putting it all into a wire loom, etc. so a pic might not help. However, I will look for what you described.
