Re: What wire size for different accessories
That might be enough? But, consider this, wire is cheap since the lenghts needed for an LT are short, AND, it is a Pain In The Ass to have to go back and install more wirers. As a result, consider running more pairs than you think you need, label them on both ends, tie them together to make a harness, install the harness with fuse holders and you might not have to take everything apart again to add something else.
I buy mil surplus, silver coated, stranded copper wire, with Teflon insulation. Teflon has a lot higher melting temp than plastic so it's easier to solder without melting the insulation and its a lot tougher than plastic in case it vibrates against something.
surplus wire can be found on ePay, different gauges and different colors. Remember to run pairs of wires inside the handle bar covers in case you want to instal any switches to control anything. For that the wires can just enter the nose cone area so that you can access them in the future.
