Power Hookup Zumo to KRS...

Hi all...well, I broke down and bought a Zumo 550 the other day. Came in two short days and am busy installing. Had to use some regular hardware to screw the ram mount into the clutch resevoir, but I will change that out with SS or something pretty sometime later. Just want to get it on and working for the weekend!! So anyway, are there any good / handy points to take my power lead off of around the handlebar area of the bike? This is a 2003 KRS. I have PIAAs relayed into the system up here, with the autoswitch / TS cancel button, but figure it's wise if I stay away from those wires. Advice desired...

Thanks in advance.

John

Use the parking light. Gray wire with a black stripe and it will give you a key switched hot wire.

thx rich. I ended up using the unused power supply to the alarm system at the back end of the bike. It's hot all the time, which is fine, since I won't be leaving the unit on the bike anyway. Test ride tomorrow morning...
