I bought a "tralier" wiring set.. both "vehicle" and "trailer" ends. There are 4 leads on the one I chose. I ran it from the battery area to the front of the bike coming up through the "nose cone" slots where the windshield support arms move, routing near the center of the bike. I now have the "connector" under the BMR shelf and when i want to remove things, I just disconnect the plug. With the 4 conductors, I have my "ground" plus 3 other 'circuits' I can control.
I ran the "power" side to a FUSE then to a relay which is actuated by the seat heater circuit.. so when the bike is off or cranking, the relay is disengaged, similar to a car.
The relay minimizes chances for "spikes" as the bike starts and you can put a "noise" eliminator on the power to the relay so all your power on the circuit is "clean"...
14 GA Automotive wire should be fine... and if you can get a Marine Grade, that would handle "wear" of a MC environment a little better.
