Default Switched power source that can handle 5 amps

I don't know why the $%^& Victory ran things from the battery, through the fuse block, and THEN to the headlight, horn etc. All the fuses are hot when the bike is off.


Long story short, I am trying to hook up an amplifier and would PREFER to put it under the seat as the headlight is already cramped with 2 HID ballasts. The amp has no switched power source. I know I could wire up a relay, but for simplicity, would just prefer to find a spot I can hook into. 5 amps really isn't that big of a draw and figured there might be something under the saddle to connect to.

In case you can't tell, I haven't pulled it all apart yet. Was hoping someone had some insight for the morning.

Does the Vegas have a heated seat option? If so, look under the seat....

Don't know WHAT I spliced into, but there was a heavy gauge wiring harness under the seat that I connected to. Works perfectly
