Tiger 900 Rally Pro - Looking for a switched live feed
« on: July 29, 2020, 01:28:31 PM »
Has anyone identified a suitable switched live ?  I've just purchased a Garmin XT, and may just wire it to the battery for now until I fit a PDM60, so interested in finding a switched live feed.

Thanks, It's a 900, but looking at the part numbers for the alarm on Triumphs website and the alarm fitting instruction manual I 'think' it may be the same set up.  Need to remove the rear seat and have a prod about (and maybe remove the phone charging box) to see if I can find the alarm lead.  I've had a Triumph Tracker fitted (not alarm), so need to check this hasn't used the same feed.

Thanks, will report back.

I have the gt pro which has a auxiliary socket next to the seat key lock, its difficult to get to, I connected my accessories to the rear of that socket which is a live switched feed.

If you have the phone charging compartment under the rear seat you could piggy back onto the live lead for the phone charger.Easy to get at, remove the four bolts and tilt to one side. The green wire is the switched live. Be aware though that it is only live whilst the engine is running(the accessory socket next the seat lock is also the same).

Thanks fastnfat, given the link posted by Number14 above I'm keen to follow the solution as in that post, as it means no splicing or cutting into wires, just using an existing socket.  Having researched the 900 Alarm fitment (which I dont have), there will be the same socket under the phone charging compartment on the right hand side.

I was going to use the heated rear seat as that connection is about 4 inches away from where I intend to mount the PDM60 (on the tray over the battery under the riders seat) and must be a switched live as it only works with the bike ignition turned on, but if I can avoid splicing this connection by using the alarm socket I will.

That is what switched live means.
These are the easiest things to use if anybody wants to tap into a switched live wire.

When you sell the bike just unscrew them and put a dab of superglue on the hole in the switched live wire to seal it. Nobody will ever see it.
