I have a new bonneville T100 and would like to install autocom.
On the autocom site is says always connect the black to the battery directly - easy enough.
For the red it says to connect it to a recommended, switched ignition fused supply (5 amps maximum unless you fit an additional in line fuse between 3 and 5 amps). It suggests positive veed to the tail lights or rear brake light switch, (always solder, do not use quick connectors).
Could someone suggest the best place to connect the red.
Also how do i do it. Do i remove the plastic covering on the cable, wrap the red around the exposed cable, add a bit of solder and cover it up with electrical tape?
All responses greatly received. i have searched but didn't find much.
.... You can tap into the existing wires using a couple of quick-splice Scotchlok connectors, no stripping or soldering required ...
I'm not keen on scotch lock but the posi tap looks really interesting.
Worth a try, they are available on Amazon is there anywhere else?
Thanks for the responses. it seems easier to attach to the front lamps although Rippers response is a very interesting alternative. i have ordered the posi tap parts.
I am going to install it under the seat. I think there is just about room for it there.
