You think this will be alright?
I'd like it on the right but there's no room plus I think it would look to stacked with the Master Cylinder there.

I haven't wired it yet. I'm gonna wait till my C & C Seat comes in. Solo black Mercedes vinyl, Matt Carbon fiber band & Classic Flame Stitching in Scarlett red. Gotta remove the tank wire tach and replace fuel level sensor.

All to better see the freaking idiots coming up behind me. 馃I already have my head on a swivel. But idiots zigzaging through traffic coming up behind me are a concern.馃檨 When you ride a bike in Florida with all the senior citizens that can't see 8 feet past the hood of there car let alone hear you. You learn to take precautions. 馃え

This is the simplest 3 wire analog tach diagram I could find. You must connect the positive to a switched circuit or it will drain your battery.

Just got e-mail from UPS.
Evidently my new C & C Seat has shipped already.
They told me 3 weeks turn around when I ordered it.
Ordered 4/26 Delivery date is 5/10. I can't wait 馃

I hadn't thought of linking it to the ignition switch, I only imagined having a separate switch for accessories. I guess a separate switch works for speakers and stuff, but this is perfect for tachs, gear indicators, etc. Good shit
EDIT: Would connecting and using a negative terminal cutoff to the battery prevent drains?

I'm gonna guess you mean for battery drains for the bike as a hole. As long as it ignition is off & no accessories are wired directly to the battery without a being tied to the ignition switch you should not have a draw except for the clock in the speedometer. If you don't ride everyday I would get yourself a battery trickle charger, a good one at least a Battery Tender.
Attach the plug-in to the battery and just hide the pigtail under the edge of the seat. Then all you do is park your bike plug in the trickle charger and connect the pigtail. Keeps the battery charged and depending on the charger it will condition the battery resulting in longer life.

I've got a battery tender hooked up already, I was asking mainly for the accessories. But you did answer my question so all good 馃槀
