  • Audio Hookup to Fusebox..?

    So, i'm thinking about hooking up a Boss Audio Bluetooth speaker set to my 05 RS and just got the confidence to remove the gas tank to run the wires. However, everyone on YouTube says I should tap into one of the "fuses" in my fuse box (SEE PIC), so that the audio system only comes on when the bike in "on." That way, the audio system doesn't drain my battery, but all of the videos, articles, and demos are shown on Harley's, not RS...Can anyone tell me which fuse I should tap into, or how? Has anyone done this, and how did you do it. Thanks for all your help.

    Hooked my Boss mechless player up to the battery via a SPST relay. The relay is triggered on from the low bean head light feed but the player also needs a constant (always on) power source to hold the presets for the radio and bass treble loudness and EQ settings. So the relay turns the player off when the key is off but a jumper to the hot feed off the relay keeps the presets on the player in place. The constant power source is a very very small draw and its no worse than the clock on the speedo panel.

        Dick M...on that SPST Relay, did you have to connect seperate wires to the prongs on that relay and connect one to the Positive battery post, one to the ignition fuse, and one to a bolt on the chassis?

          yeah that's it. I feed the constant power for prests from the +Battery side of the relay. The headlight power will pull the relay closed when the key is on and allow the + Bat to flow to your Boss player..
