I also have a 2017, and would love to do this, but I didn't see the same white/black wire. It worked perfectly on my 2010, so I'm really hoping to learn what the right wire to cut is. I'm also hoping that the same hack will allow me to adjust the headlights while in motion as well.

Hope someone can help bought a 2017 wing new and would like to do this mod. I bought a simple open close switch mounted it in the left fairing pocket. I cut the attached wire ( see picture) hooked it to the switch and tried it while on the stand. It made no difference if I turned the switch on or off. Am I doing something wrong with the sequence or did I cut the wrong white black wire (hope not). This wire is right beside the relay box and is the only 6 pin wire I can see that is white black. I could not find any 6 pin closer to the trunk. This wire does run back towards the truck wire mentioned earlier
So hope someone that has done the mod will chime in
Thanks.
Did you ever figure it out ?

You cut the right wire, Terrydes, but it won't make a difference while sitting still. While you're in motion, turning the switch off will make the bike think you're at a dead stop. You'll see that even though you're still moving, the GPS is not. Power up the GPS, then when you turn your switch back on, you'll see the GPS jump to your current position.

Now if we can only do something similar for the headlight adjustment...
