obtaining wiring diagrams

I have just bought a 2nd hand K1300GT SE and I want to add my Zumo 660 and intercom system but I can not find a wiring diagram. I paid money to down load the file from www.imarksweb.net after the site reported it held three versions but after having to down load a program called media crawler i didn't get any further . Does anyone know where I can find the said PDF and am I correcvt the site is a con

You really don't need a wiring diagram. You can tap power from the connector behind the battery ( zip tied to the frame), This is switched from the Canbus system and is activated a few seconds after starting and shuts down a few moments after shutting down the bike. Another spot to take power is off the turn signal wires.
In either case, the preferred method is to use a relay such as the Centech to use those tap off points to trigger the relay, which gets the power from the battery, thus not interfering with a draw from the canbus system, but using its switched capabilities.

The alternate is to take power direct from the battery, but you will have to remember to shut off your accessories after shutting down the engine...

I used the power from the connector behind the battery ( very easy to get to.) There are 3 leads. Use a voltmeter to find the appropriate leads.

Some others may chime in on which wire is which. it was a long time ago for me.

You bet it is a con, not a very expensive one but a con nonetheless.

Got to wonder when you are looking at a file that would be obscure and unneeded for most ,and they show it as being downloaded a couple thousand times in the last two weeks. Never found it either.....

There are a lot of these money grabbing and fake software downloading sites. As soon as they say 'download our downloader first' or executeable, run away because that may put all the ads and porn sites up on your pc. The genuine manual sellers usually take your money then send you an email containing a time limited link to their server for you to download.

All these other robot sites do is take your search specific key input and spit it out in a familiar phrase. I bet those sites come back with a positive result for any input containing the word 'manual'.

I bought a genuine BMW paper book of wiring diagrams for my early '97 KRS and they are still sold.

Rendrag, you are in UK so why not search Amazon or go to Motobins and buy the Clymer workshop manual? It includes wiring diagrams and will be your Bible if you start working on the bike.

For the sat nav as has been mentioned use the plug by the battery, and if you go to a BMW dealer and ask for a cable part no 83300413585, you can then splice this to your Garmin power lead and just plug in, its around a tenner. The 3 leads are marked, 1, 2 and 3. Lead 2 is not used, 1 is earth and 3 live.

I believe Nippy Normans may sell plug and play cables, but they are about 40 quid.

Cant help with the Intercom, I dont want to hear or speak to anybody when Im riding but thats just me.
