Help with aux lights

Could some one post a pic of where I can tap a hot wire for my aux lights? I've tried the white wire connection to the tail light; with out result(well I think it's the tail light ). I'm trying to wire a Denali lights system up.
Please and thank you.

How many watts is the Denali system? When I made the wiring harness for my custom lights, I ran a wire from the battery to use as the hot, and I triggered it with a relay off the parking light.

My other thought was to use the GPS connector located under the dash, but I was unsure how much current that wire could handle and took the safe route. I'd expect if the Denali lights use less than 30w all together, it would be safe to use the GPS connector.

Yellow wire goes to the tag bulb. A safer place to connect the low amp relay switch wire.

Connected mine on the light side of the connection to the wiring loom.

I would only connect extras to the battery with a switch relay.

Correct. This is exactly as I have done, except with the parking lights from the headlight. I relocated the horn to where the charcoal canister used to be, and hid the relay inside the nose with the custom harness.

This is the most difficult bike to add onto. There is just NO room on the bike to work with. Ducati did an amazing job stuffing it all in a tight package.

I'll post photos of my wiring and routing locations if anyone wants. I thought there was enough room to have everything I needed, once I moved the horn.


I know you're the one doing the custom light setup, so you already know more about it than i do.

Please do! Removing the horn is interesting. That's a good spot in there.

Don't know if this helps but people swear by this guy's wiring harnesses.

3 Circuit

Also the harnesses sold by cyclops look very good.

I've ordered a number of relays from Eastern Beaver. Arrive from Japan quickly. Very top quality.
