    I'm a little out of the way. Hwy 93 and I-40 is where Kingman is. I plan on riding up to the Moki Dugway on May 20th, and cruise around that area for a couple of days. Always enjoy company if you're ever close. I'm still trying to figure out how to add a picture to my profile. And, have a question about a wire to hook up a GPS. This forum is a little different than anything I've used, so it will take a while to get it figured out. Lots of areas, for sure!

    That would be easy to access. But, what happens when you use the turn signal...on/off, on/off, etc. Or, is there uninterrupted power going to them?

    Remember that the front running goes turns off while the turn signal is flashing. If you just need to charge batteries off the lead, the interruption in power probably would not be a problem.

    Use the accessory harness plug on the left side under the plastics. It has both constant power and switched power.
    I bought the harness for about $10 IIRC. it breaks the big plug into separate circuits used for Honda accessories like heated grips, 12v outlet, etc. it either came with a relay or I bought that on the same order for not much money.

    Bringing these quotes over from another unrelated thread:

    The harness part number is different for a ‘12 than for ‘13 - ‘15. The ‘12 has more circuits available. I think the relay is the same.

    What JT said. The neatest, proper way to gain switched accessory power is to buy the Honda accessory harness and relay, the use mating electrical connectors to hook up your accessory device power lead. The mating connectors are detailed here: Corresponding connectors
    For the 2012 model, the accessory harness will also provide a high beam signal to trigger brightness levels on auxiliary lights, should you desire that in the future.

    The accessory harness and relay installation is shown here: https://powersports.honda.com/docume...71-MGS-A30.pdf
    Just ignore the part about installing the 12 volt socket. The Honda 12 volt socket accessory is a joke because it’s fused at a nearly useless 1 amp and the fuse is hidden under the body panel if you install it per the directions.

    An an alternative for power distribution would be a Fuzeblock, where you can neatly have multiple fused circuits for accessories, some switched and some constant. Welcome to Fuzeblocks - Out Stuff blows so yours doesn't

    And then there is alway just hacking into the taillight wire, but that would be my least favorable choice, for several reasons.

    This is the part number for the relay set 670cc mentioned: 08A70-MGS-D30 (HO PM1 NC7 RELAY SET)
    After buying the relay and accessory harness, I'd suggest just buying the relay at about $10 US and using the 6 pin harness connector to plug into. The accessory harness is expensive for what it is.
    I used this guy Motorcycle 2.8mm - 110 Connector and Terminals
    to source my bits from to power my GPS & an aftermarket frunk plug.
