As mentioned check the "Search" feature as you can find the most any information when you actually need it instead of waiting for replies. Many use the extra wires hidden in the headlight bucket.

Those wires are always hot. You would need a switch to turn off the power.

In order to get the most accurate Voltage reading (without loss thru wire harness), I wired Volt Meter directly to my Coil Mod Relay (ign. switched), thus reading actual Battery voltage directly.

...a relay...switched into the key switch is the ultimate though....me and KC and Nitro were just discussing that a few days ago.....

I think this is the way to go. Did mine through the right running light in the bucket and it will give you lower readings and a big range during the ride.

I wired mine to the red wire on the front coil. I get an accurate reading and switches off with the key. Haven't seen/felt any adverse effects yet.
