12V retarted power off

I'm working to install all my farkles in my K1200GT radio, horn, gps, aux lights, intercom, autoswitch, aeroflow etc all work nice but I have a problem with Autoswitch.
I used BMW connector near to battery where we have:

Lead 1 = ground
Lead 2 = pulsed speed signal
Lead 3 = +12VDC (CANbus controlled)


sure lights and horn power are connected directly on the battery.
I use double autoswitch to control intercom and Martin fabrication aux lights, all work nice but the problem is retared power off in Lead 3.
It is not a problem if a small GPS or Intercom still on for 1 minute after I switch key off, but I'm thinking maybe can be a problem to have GPS, Intercom and aux lights 35W+35W for 1 minute after I switch key off.

I know also because of Canbus we can't connect wires in several places, so does someone know where I can connect Autoswitch to get 12V key off when I switch key off immediatly ?
The best thing will be to connect Autoswitch to low beam, so also aux lights switch on only when engine is running.

Forgot to say that, Lead2, pulsed speed signal, doesn't work with Autoswitch because it is not really 12V

You don't want to trigger any high current items off that GPS plug near the battery. It is possible for that plug to stay on a lot longer than just 1 minute.

Your best bet is the low beam feed because as you mentioned it doesn't power up until the engine is running. Second best is the parking light which goes on and off with the key, which means that it will be on before the bike is started.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Check out the Canbus 101 article in the Hall of Wisdom. Look at the top right of this page click the Technical drop down link, then HoW.
