Relay supplied switches

Post by williamson_l »

I have added two of the 3 switch master cylinder rocker switch housings.

I put in a solid state low voltage dropout relay. This will drop out at 11.5 volts and allow the bike to still start.

The relay coil is supplied from the ignition switched accessory fuse. The supply side of the relay has a 10 AMP fuse connected directly to the positive terminal of the battery. On the output side of the load, there are two 5 AMP fuses, one for each switch housing.

For the right hand switches I ran 2 wires under the right side lockable storage bin and taped up. The 3rd was ran back to under the seat.

For the left side switches, I ran all 3 wires to the seat and taped up.

I also added a negative bus that is connected directly to the negative terminal of the battery.
I have included some pictures of the install.
