    Question R1200R switched wire

    Where's the best place to find a switched wire on an '08 R1200R?
    I want to install a Fuzeblock.

    Many take power from the parking light. There is even an adapter sold that plugs between light and wiring harness to break out the power for you without any mods to the wiring. Don't remember who makes it, though.

    On my GS the low beam stays on with the high beam so I used the low beam to power my fuzeblock. I did it this way so that aux devices aren't powered until after the bike is started. I was able to tap into the low beam socket in a way that did not modify the socket or the stock wiring. See http://www.snafu.org/pics/r1200gs/2007/0608-wiring/ for details.
