Power Lead for Autocom

I thought I would see if I could get any opinions on the power lead for an autocom system I'm about to install on my bike. I was thinking I would use the positive lead from the heated seat on my 04 1200GT. I have a Sargent seat and don't use the stock heated seat. I believe this switched power source has a fuse and meets the requirements I have been looking at in the directions to install the power cord and system. I understand the negative lead goes to the battery. I just want to do this once and get a clean power source. I know to solder the splice and will heat shrink wrap it. I'm just not that good with some electronics and was looking for some help. I searched and found various threads with suggestions on this subject but none I found mentioned the heated seat lead that is not being used. Thanks, 1200gt

Use the lead from the parking lamp located in the headlight. It's easy and clean and simple.

I wired my autocom and Zumo from the parking light wire. It is gray with a black stripe and behind the left side fuse block. I ran a wire from there to a Centech AP1 fuse block and the negative to the battery. Any other accesories can now be wired directly to the AP1 that is key switched and no more messing with wires.

If you do decide to mount the Autocom in the tail or rear portion of the bike, power it from the lisence plate light. That's how I did it and you won't have to run your power all the way to the front of the bike.
