I HATE tapping wires into other electrical wires on a vehicle. Yes you can maybe get away with it ok, but to me its not worth it.
On my first car I did alot of tapping into other circuits. Everything worked great for quite a while, but then the gremlins start showing up. Trying to back track after problems arrive and figure out what wire tap caused your problems sucks.
On the V I s=installed a Fuzeblok under the seat. Serves 2 great purposes. First, It is impossible to leave something on and kill my battery. Second, if electrical problems arrive, I can disconnect each item, or the entire Fuzeblk to see if it has anything to do with the problems. Plus its not a rats nest of wires on my battery....
Stuff I have on my Fuzeblok- GPS, Additional headlights, cigarette plug in my top box, and Oxford heated grips.
Givi racks with V35 sides, and V46 Top-case, Garmin Zumo 450 GPS, Powermadd Handguards, Motowerks GPS Mount, Peg Lowering kit, Flat Foot, Arrow Exhaust, Adjustable Levers, GIPro Gear Indicator, Oxford Heated Grips
