Voltage Meter gauge and Relay
After the installation of my Stator and regulator, I want to add a Voltage meter gauge and I have read many posts about connecting directly to the battery or connecting to the headlight bucket. I really like to go directly to the battery, so I can get the exact charge and voltage of the bike.
Do you have any suggestions on which wire I should tap into ? Also, I found a great post from a fellow Vulcan owner about relays below but one question.
(PLEASE SEE ATTACHED RELAY IMAGE)
If #86 is getting power from Headlight bucket, then do you still need power from battery terminal and FUSE going to #30 ?
# 86 would be the power supply from the headlight bucket, no switch is needed here, the lead acts like a switch. It is illistrated this way if you wanted to be able to kill the supply. (ex. L.E.D. lighting system or other accessory)
# 87 would be the + power lead to the meter. (middle lead don't beleive is used)
# 85 & 87 can share the same ground, just make sure it's a good one.
# 30 self explainatory!
Thanks in advance for all the help and support!!
