    Where on the bike are you mounting the fuse block? If you are mounting near the battery, there is a plug in front of the battery for a switched source (GPS). If you are mounting under the seat, the green/white wire from this module is switched.

    2018 RT Front End Switched Power Source?

    Just got my first BMW back in December. Already adding farkles.

    I need a switched power source at the front of bike for Skene dimmer relay for aux lights. Is it easier to tap into the halos in the headlight harness or parking lights or something else? What wires should I look for and where?

    Still waiting on my dvd manual to arrive but already chin-deep in installation!

    Thanks!

    Everything can be found here. Delivery from Japan is a little slow because of COVID, but their products are very good. No language barriers, Iíve used EB for years.

    Thanks, I'm familiar with EB, having sourced products from them for my V-strom. However, what I am in need of is a wire that I can tap as a switched power source for the Skene dimming relay. I have the lights wired for power from a fused distribution block, on a fused line to battery, but I'm having trouble identifying a hot wire that is only powered when the bike is turned on so that the Skene relay will then turn on the lights.

    Hope that helps clarify what I'm asking.

    Success! In the wire bundle going to the headlight housing there is a Red wire with a blue stripe. That wire is hot when the motorcycle is switched on. That's a good place to tap for Skene dimming relays for aux lights on the RTW. Thanks for the help!
