I want to add GPS to my K12RS so, what is the best location on bike/harness to tie my gps pwr cord into?

I ran a line back to the battery, fused it, and called it done. This is for a Garmin 2610 held on a RAM Mount on the clutch master cylinder cover. I used the motorcycle wiring kit from Garmin and an ATP (automotive fuse) kit from Radio Shack in place of the glass fuse and holder (had some problems with them holding up). It means pulling all the tupperware and the tank, but it's a slick enough job, otherwise. And it gives you a chance to make sure your quick disconnects are OK and aren't the plastic ones that break. Whatta deal! :teeth

True. If only one thing's being added, the route I suggested is fine. But if more stuff is in the works, a fuse/distro box is a winner.

Mine is running off the front parking light bulb. That way, the ignition shuts it off. Also, no need to run a wire all the way back to the battery.
