Re: 12v Switched Power for Laser Jammer?
plus you shouldn't spice into a tail light. first of all it probably doesn't have 12v going to it since they are now LED. or it uses a too low of a amp fuse. second when that tap cuts the wire in half (yes they eventually do as I've seen it dozens of times working at a dealership) or the low amp fuse keeps blowing from being over drawn by the laser jammer you will be left without a brake light for someone to smash you to death because they didn't see you stopping. and of course a cop to pull you over and give you a fix it ticket. we weren't even allowed to use those. I fixed about 6 bike's power commanders installs because that connector cut the throttle position sensor wires in half. we had to strip the wires and solder them. people wanted to buy the universal units because they are cheaper. but they don't have the factory style plugs and you have to splice wiring. which is never a proper thing.
also, I'm not trying to be a dick about this but looking at your picture, you are the kind of guy we would reject fixing your bike for electrical issues until you removed all that garbage hack wiring you have in there. that's a rats nest and nothing is worse than having to figure out the hackery on a bike that's been done that way. I would not touch your bike and leave it sit in the corner for weeks or until you agreed to pay us for 2 hours of electrical diagnostics for $275. about 90% of the bike's with electrical problems turned out being caused by that stuff.
guys would come in with batteries being dead all the time ect. they just though they needed new ones. it turns out all the lighting and accessories on their bike was using up 100% of the stator output capacity and the bike was running off the battery. this kind of thing is why motorcycle forums are full of dead battery and stator issue threads.
you have to be careful with a motorcycle wiring. you can fry a ECU. and motorcycle ecu's are close to and sometimes over $1000 for most bikes.
