Firstly, (unless you are one hell of a smart ass, and that guy aint been born yet!!) should you apologize for any of your questions being dumb. Either you know or you dont and far better ask here than make one hell of an expensive mistake and believe me it can happen with DIY wiring jobs. In the UK I doubt if you would get your insurance to pay out if they discovered the fire was down to your botched wiring job.
But back to your question, I presume you are wanting to fit these lights to your RT, well, if you are happy with a switch on your handlebars I would go for that. The Autoswitch link ( last page) is the same for the AS7 but if you don't know what your looking at it will be a mystery. I can only speak from experience of fitting the Autoswitch but in my opinion it is NO job for an amateur splicing into the Turn Cancel Wire.
I was not in favour of cutting into my lighting wires as all you need is a power wire to the unit from an ignition supply. Under NO circumstances use a feed wire straight from the battery that is LIVE even when the bike is shut down you are asking for trouble. I used the Aux rear power supply socket wire that shuts down with the Canbus system after 30seconds.
One last question, Is there anyone in your area that knows what they are doing with Auto Wiring that could help you out. And if you do attempt it youself make sure you solder all the connections, there is nothing worse than trying to trace a wiring fault when two connections have pulled apart (seperated).
