    Switched power source

    Hey guys,
    In the process of installing an AEM a/f gauge on my 12 RXP-X and was wondering where I should tap into the ski for power. Looking for a clean and simple solution. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your best off to run a relay as to not draw too much power from your existing electronics. Use a solid purple wire as your switched 12v, that will come live when dess key is put on post and stay on for 10 seconds after key is removed.

    +1 use the solid purple that comes down into the front of the hull from your handlebar area. i carefully stripped a 1" area and soldered in my aem wire, then electrical taped it up.

    There was recently a thread on this same topic..... I'll try to find it. It's not a purple wire on the 12's

    Thanks for the reply guys. After doing more research, I decided to run it to a switch directly from the battery with an inline fuse. Here is the final install.

    Just make sure you always turn it on before starting the engine.... and leave it on when the engines running. You'll be trashing o2 sensors left & right if you don't!
