Accessory Buss for R1200GS?

I have a buddy with an R1200GS. He wants to start putting electrical accessories on the bike so I suggested installing a bus first. I'm not familiar with this bike or its electrical system so a few questions.

1. Is it ok to connect a bus (Centech or Blue Sea) to a canbus bike?

2. Is a relay required? If so, how is it hooked up?

3. From a real estate perspective, where's the best place to put a bus?

Thanks in advance!!!

Yes you can. A relay would be good. There is a Plug and Play wiring adapter that provides a 12v switched power supply. The wiring adapeter goes inline with the parking lamp. Has a diode to stop reverse current flow.





There is enough space under the front seat for a small fuse block and relay.

There are two places that carry them.
