I want to be more visible. So I purchased a set of white Bike Vis Bullets LED Marker Lights from Whitehorse Gear (http://www.whitehorsegear.com/bike-vis-bullets
). Wiring these lights sounds fairly simple.
I know just enough about wiring auxiliary lights to get myself in trouble. I did some searches and found some good information. But I’m still a little unsure. So I thought I would ask you experts if I was on the right track and, maybe, get some recommendations.
My bike is a ’09 (Gen 2).
I’ll mount these lights on the fairings facing forward (out of the way to keep them protected).
I want these to turn on and off with the bike, just like the low beam headlights (on all the time).
I don’t want them switched separately.
These only draw 72 mA each.
I believe I will not need a relay nor will I need an additional fuse (correct?).
Which wire is the best to splice into for the positive connection? How do I identify it? Or, should it be connected directly to something else?
What is best for connecting the negative? Grounding it to the frame? Splicing into another negative wire? Direct connection to the battery’s negative?
If I splice, what is the best method? I would rather not cut and solder if I don’t have to. Will “Scotchlok” connectors work? If so, which type? Are they waterproof enough (do they need to be)?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
