we got some to fit on Loopys 400 but aint got round to it yet....

the ones I bought... connect straight to the battery & you turn them off at supplied switch....


we wondered about splicing them into main power circuit but on reading instructions it appears that once the power in circuit drops they automatically turn off if you've left them on to prevent flattening battery

:hmm: I'm not entirely certain it's working that way on my bike.. I fitted mine a while ago and I left them on once at work and came out to a bike which wouldn't start as the battery had drained, probably just enough thats she couldn't turn over.. I had to get a jump off the works Jeep to get her started..

I've not left them on again since!!!

Happy New Year everyone once again...I connected mine to my headlight low beam power wire since it's on while riding and turns off with the key. Works great. I believe that's what the instructions said as well. Then my switch controls low, high and off to the grips.

Check to be sure your headlight is on with the key first though.

The product instructions may advise depending on manufacturer and type. Some have no battery voltage sensor, others do.
On the battery sensor type Oxford products don't recommend wiring into the lights or horn circuit if wanting to use an ignition switched live. The grips need about 13amps to run and switch off below 11.5 amps

If you are looking for a switched live that will get good power via the regulator then use the red / black stripe wire that comes out from the ignition switch and goes into the fuse box. Make sure your grips have an in line fuse on the live side (most do).

I wired a set up on my girlfriends Fazer by using the low beam wiring to prevent them being accidentally left on. Two years later, still going strong, no problems with either grips or lighting circuit.
