    Switched on Power

    I have a 2018 R1200RT that I installed a Warm and Safe permanent dual contoller on the left side by the radio buttons. Where would I tap into to install a relay so that it only gets power when the bike is switched on. Right now it hooked direct to the battery. Thanks Tom

    on my 2016 there was a plug behind the left side front plastic that was switched power.

    You can pull a trigger wire for the relay from the small fuse block under the driver's seat. One of those fuses is switched.

    I used one of these, the switched one is 7.5a . See pages 14 and 156 in your bikes manual.

    Just a tip, if you get switched power from a wire (as opposed to the fuse idea above) use a posi-tap. These little things are awesome!.
