installing the radar detector, where is the "hot" wire under seat???


Recommended Posts

I have installed the Escort 8500 x50 radar detector on my ST and connected it to the battery. I would like to connect it to some "hot" wire under seat so it powers up from the ignition (when I turn the bike on). I have the diagnostic terminal under seat and am wondering if I can somehow connect it there. Any ideas???


Thanks. thumbsup.gif

Another option is upfront under the steering head.


Good point. Connecting to the GPS socket there is a heck of a lot easier than running a wire up under the tank etc. Both the GPS socket up front and the powerlet connection in back are switched. Both stay on for a minute or two after you turn the bike off. I have my Zumo powered from the GPS connector, and my Autocom powered from the rear connector.
