Road Tech Zumo 665 wiring questions

OK, I am an electrical moron (among other types).
Looking at the motorcycle cradle, it looks like I could attach the hot and ground leads to the two leads in the faring (see attached picture), then hook in the xm antenna and mount under the faring, and then (thanks to a rear aux mod from iron cross audio) connect the aux out to the read of the radio.
My point/question is: do any of the wires need to actually leave the faring?? The HD instructions just make things seem real complicated, but it actually seems like Garmin has made a nice tidy package...am I being too optimistic???

On a related note, is there anything "unsafe" for either the bike or the GPS about wiring directly into the two leads shown below?

Thanks!
Ian

Im sure you could do it that way if you wanted. I have my hidden amplified antenna running off those leads. I believe most people here hook into the accessory lead under the seat. You will need the male plug, and you can wire it in to turn on with ign, or turn on/off by acc. switch.

Those are the exact leads I used when wiring mine. Apparently they are for international models headlights. I thought they were controlled by the acces switch on my dash, but they are hot any time the ignition is on.

Thanks Woody and JJ!
Woody- did you just use regular spade connectors to tap in?
Thanks

you can also tap into the cigarette lighter and it will be switched through the ignition.

I have mine wired into the ACC switch on the dash. Use the accessory plug under the seat. HD sells them pretty cheap, wire your GPS wires to that and then just plug it in.

I wired mine directly to the cigarette lighter spades, as well as the J&M flepower antenna, works great, power on with ignition.

Can someone explain how to wire up everything to the ACC plug under the seat? Pics would help. Not sure which plug is the ACC plug.

I just bought a zumo 660 for my 2009 RG. I would like to wire mine as you've described. Could you please tell me which connector you're using. If possible, picture(s) would be great. I'm just not following what's written in this thread or in the H-D instruction sheet. Thanks in advance if you choose to reply.

Did you ever get pics on how to wire the harness up to the accessory plug as being described in this thread? I have a H-D Zumo 660 that I want to hookup on my '09 RG. I'm looking for pics on how to connect the harness as well as route it. The H-D installation sheet is not much help. It says nothing about the three plugs on the harness nor where to put them.
