Take a read through a previous solution for the gen 3 bike and see if it's a suitable solution (the white connector) for you.,24111.0.html
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

So, I just had same question few moths ago.
Wanted to tap in to the horn cable, but on gen3 it will not work, cause they change wiring.

I really did not want to route cables under the tank, so looking close to electric schema from Hynes manual, I find out, there is switched +12 in the LED headlight. My Zumo consumes not more then 1A, so I desided it would be safe to tap in there.
Green is switched +12 and black is ground. Ground could be taken from the frame, but I decide to tap in.
For connector, I used waterproof contact pair from Aliexpress (I have ZUMO 595 and Montana 680, and I wanted to have possibility to use different from time to time).

But, for now, it seems to me, it would be better, if I would go with not switched but constant power. Most likely will redo my wiring, when I'll have time and wish :)
