Switched ignition source

So where's a good spot to get a switched ignition source for my XM radio? The map light is up from where I'm at but I do not see those wires in the harness. Is there anywhere else that I can get it from without having to go behind the guages? I did find out that the accy plug on the LH lower side is powered all the time though. BTW, after taking off the tupperware for the 1st time, there's a whole lot more screws to take out than I initially expected. I'm sure glad that I have a refrigerator full of beer and a good radio...LOL

Power for the heated seats. BTW ... don't use the frame of the bike as ground. Better if you ground it to a known grounding point. DAMHIK....

Right on, DaFlake! power from the seat plug (bike side) to a relay.. short wire run and very little effort. Don't forget to "fuse" the relay control and supply.

You can also use the leetle parking light in the headlight.
