Voltage Meter Install / Fan Switch

Well I just want to make sure I'm doing things correctly before I dive in...

I have a small red voltage meter going in by the dash.
I have small waterproof rocker switches, 10Amp.

I was going to start a positive and negative from the battery, run the positive through the switch and to the meter with the negative that is coming from the battery. Should I put a small fuse in-between the battery and switch? This shouldn't drain my battery since it is working on a switch...
Suggestions on how to do it differently?


Also would a 10 amp switch be enough to handle being a manual fan switch?
From what I see just bridge before and after the fan switch but does the ground trigger the switch or is it the hot wire? I know in the 600's it was the ground wire...
EDIT: Looks like going into the fan relay there is only the bl/bu going towards the fan and g/y coming from the ecu. Should these be spliced and the switch between those?
I don't want to start mangling wires to find out.

Thanks for verifying/correcting my ramblings!

Re: Voltage Meter Install / Fan Switch

I put my switch leads in parallel at the radiator sensor, located on the left side of the bike on the back side of the radiator.
I used scotchlock connectors to reduce the wire damage, I am sure there are other non destructive methods.

Sorry but I dont recall the wire colors located at the switch.

Re: Voltage Meter Install / Fan Switch

Thank you!

I will have to try that. Just need to find out if the switch works on the ground or hot wire...

Re: Voltage Meter Install / Fan Switch

All you have to do is take the 2 leads that are at the radiator and run them to the switch. One on each of the 2 leads of the switch to one of the 2 leads from the sensor, in other words, the toggle switch is in parallel with the radiator sensor / switch.
That allows you to by pass the sensor when you want the radiator fan on (turn on switch) or let the radiator sensor do the chore when the toggle switch is off.

I understand now. Needed a clear head to finally understand...

Thank you!
She should run a bit cooler in the summer months and still not take away from the stock temperature switch.

I find it very helpful around town in traffic.
