Where do I get power from? IGN

I am installing my heated grips. Haven't had a chance to look through the wiring diagrams yet, but I am looking for an ignition circuit to switch the relay from.

I think that you can use your head light wire for the relay. And come right off the bat for the load lead.

Pull switch power from one of the front running lights and main power from the accessory leads in the H.L. bucket, one is - and the other is +. You can keep the relay in the bucket.

I'm looking for something back near the battery though... My relay came as part of a pre-made harness and has a short lead to connect the main power.

I'm making good progress though. Grips are on, controller is mounted and I'm buttoning up the last of the wiring.

You can pull switch power from one of the two red wires under the seat that goes to the tail/tag lights.

Thanks, two more connections and I'll be done... I love having a computer in my garage for quick help while I'm in the middle of working on something.

It looks like an Eastern Beaver custom harness. I used one with my heated grips, great workmanship and you can't beat the Posi-Lock connectors. I wired my relay energizer wire to the license plate light connector. Nothing fancy, just pulled the male-female connector apart, laid the relay energizer wire across the male connector and pushed it back into the female. Friction of the connector holds the wire in place as tight as a solder joint. Not permanent, I know, but made for a quick connection. Have fun with the heated grips.
