    RoadHawk camera hard wiring kits

    Hi, please can anyone help me or point me in the right direction. I am looking to fit forward and rear facing Roadhawk camera's to my bike but I am unable to find a location in which to join the wiring as the control units needs to be switched. Red = Live. Black = Negative. Blue = Switched.

    This is my last go before I take it to a dealer and get fleeced.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Ian.... for my forward and rear facing cameras I get power direct from battery but with a relay triggered by the power in the glovebox. I have 2 switches in line too so I can stop and start the cameras I have remotely from that left hand pane. Take a look at my post here Kevin

    The front glovebox 12v socket is switched live when the engine starts. The topbox 12v socket is switched live with the ignition (on my bike). Both are fused under the left side panel giving you options where to connect. Direct to the battery seems obvious for the front permanent connection, but I am not sure of a good location for the rear one unfortunately.

    Hi Ian, I've just purchased the same camera but just for the front. I would be obliged if you would let me know how you get on with the wiring, as I'm not the most gifted auto electrician. Many thanks. Peter.

    Not everybody has the rear carrier/topbox, so the rear running light will also suffice for the purpose of a live with ignition circuit. I mention this because the relay for the rear carrier circuit is not included with the bike, it comes in the rear carrier kit, so if you try to tap the wire off the circuit without it, it will always be dead.

    True.

    However, the rear power socket on the left side near the seat is also switched.
