Add relay mounted behind reg/rec and switched via rear number plate light,.......
Another thought, Art. Normally, when adding accessories, I too would have used a relay to protect the on/off switch.
But, since these Prozer LEDs are relatively low current, I didn't bother in this case.

You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.

Add relay mounted behind reg/rec and switched via rear number plate light, on/off switch on left handlebar. Ignition on switch on lights on or, ignition on switch off lights off. Also easy to flick through the 3 phases hi, low, flash via the handlebar switch.

Amazing how the traffic parts when filtering with flashing DRL's, proper illegal though.


Very nice  :062:

That relay is just to ensure all my accessories are powered off with ignition off and supplies a 12v feed to the DRL's, SatNav, a 12v 10A fused auxiliary socket, a 5v 2A fused USB socket and heated grips. Its a 40A 14VDC SPDT changeover relay and I've also wired in a jump lead via the 87a terminal to charge the battery by. Last but not least, for future proofing, there is a spare 6.4mm female spade connectors just in case.

A nice solution, Art. I like it.  :028:
Thinking I might do likewise.

Thanks,
