Aux LED Light Wiring Help
Itís time for the biennial K1200LT maintenance, repair, and farkeling extravaganza and among my planned farkels is something that has me confused. I want to add some auxiliary LED lighting to the bike which itself is easy enough, but I want to do something that I donít know how to do:
1. I want them to come on with ignition but be able to turn them off with a switch if I donít want that (easy enough)
2. I would like to be able to switch them on when the bike is off, fork locked and key out of the ignition.
Now itís very likely that the solution is a whole lot easier than I think but I figured I would put it out there to smart people rather than engineer this myself. Iím good with the soldering iron and crimpers, but I really have some lack when it comes to electrical systems. If someone has a minute to sketch up a diagram or let me know how/if this can be accomplished I would appreciate it. Also since itís LED Iím assuming I wonít need a relay?
Thanks in advance.
