Well, you're right.  That's not a good place for it.  There is a constant charge from that post to the ground.  Weather the key is on or off.  So now I'm at a loss as to where to put it though.  Should I splice it into the Aux, or should I splice it into the lock? Does polarity matter here?

Thanks Rich.  What I am not is an electrician.... ;)


The lock is based off of a positive ground, that's how the m-unit describes the lock input in the manual.  Isn't the black wire from the RR a negative? 

Actually I think I may have answered my own question in trying to phrase the question here.  And you were right all along, I need to splice it into the lock input, after the key... 

Any confirmations?

I tested the connection at the m-unit.  Looks like that is the answer.  I need to splice the black wire in to the wire coming from the ignition switch(key), and going into the m-unit.  This wire meets the needed criteria. 

Electrical has never been something that I can easily wrap my head around.  Thanks for the help all.  I'll post how it goes.

Anybody know which hole the black wire had gone to in the connector at the key?  I'm thinking about trying to fish a new black wire up to there instead of splicing my other wire.

Strange that none of the posts in the key connection offer the needed criteria...  I may have to splice into the wire coming into the m-unit... 

Thanks Sonreir.  Please do let me know what you find.

Yep.  None of the other posts had switched power to them.  SO I connected it right at the terminal of the m-unit.  Bike seems to run fine.  As things progress I'll report back. 

Thanks for all the input everyone.

Just ran it about 20-30 miles.  Everything ran great.  Started right up and had no problems.  :) 

Tomorrow is carb syncing and a tuning.  I'll post pics in the next two to three days as it's in nicer locations and feeling good.  I've got an instagram account that will surely have some more of the fun pics.  Find me by searching my user name- H2Otoad

Thanks again all.
