Road Tech Install

I have a question about the road tech mount install. I'm trying to locate a good spot for power and ground. I have attached a pic for reference. The blue arrow points to two wires coming out of the headlight wires. Can I snip the ends off and connect the gps wires to these for constant power?

The red arrow points to what I believe is an accessory power point. Should I buy the accessory connector and connect to this for power?

Any help is appreciated. God forbid Harley include install instructions with the $600 GPS.

There should be a lead in that bird's nest with an orange connector that is not used. It will power on with the ignition. The mating connector should be available at your local parts store. Used it for amp remote signal in the past. Manual is in storage since move so I'm going from memory.

Red Pepper/Magnetic Grey CVO with KST black 14" apes and a quick detach TP.

That route seems like a lot more work then there needs to be. There's gotta be a connection inside the fairing. I thought about the cigarette lighter wires but figured I'd try to find wires that aren't used yet but still live.

I installed my unit via the included instructions. It does require removal of the tank console and running the power lead through the plastic wire tunnel. There is a spare place in the fuse block and an included wire with pin attached that will go right in the fuse block. This is for the positive lead and the ground simply goes to the battery. My unit powers on and off with the key lock switch.

Those items came with the 660? I ask because I have no install instructions nor a supplied wire.

Look up the handle bar kit instructions, you will need a 5.00 jumper cable for the fuse box hook up. Simple install and was easy.

I tested the wires where you placed the blue arrow. It is switched power, as soon as you turn the switch on it becomes hot. The Black wire is ground.

Cigarette lighter wires, and a couple of T-taps. Red is switched hot, black is ground. Don't over think it.

Awesome. Thanks. I was going to test them today but that saves me a step.
