Howdy Dennis,

I've done it on my '04 LT and it should be similar.

My set up:
Power supply.
BMR shelf.
Rain box.
Helmet alert.

I ran my power cord to a switched source, set the detector to "auto", put it in the rain box and mounted it securely on the BMR shelf. Then put the L.E.D. receiver in the helmet and it's good to go.

If the radar is the only accessory you are adding, you can pull switched power from the running light circuit in the headlight.
