and grab the power from the fused "Auxilary Supply" already fitted

Hi

I have had my 2002 K1200RS for two weeks, my first BMW, and I have fitted my autocom.........I have looked through this forum for the last three hours, please can someone tell me where the fused "Auxiliary Supply" is fitted on this bike, and is it switched, ie through the ignition?

I have read some very interesting threads tonight, many of them very informative, with lots of variations on how to. I just can't find out where the aux supply is located.

Many thanks in advance

You can grab switched power from the seat heater (be sure it's on the bike side, not the seat), or the parking light, which is the small bulb in the headlamp.

Another neat trick is to take your ohm meter and find out which fuse(s) on your fuse boxes is switched. Pull that fuse, drill a small hole in one leg of the fuse, insert positive wire from the Autocom and then shove it back in place.
