I searched high and low on here and couldn't really find a decent answer for the age old question .... how to hardwire a gps, BUT on a steetfighter.

The were a few suggestions on other bike models, but I am trying to find any members on here who actually have hard wired a GPS cable onto their streetfighter.

Any help/info/direction would be greatly appreciated.

i was going to run my wires under the tank, but after inspection i noticed the main wiring cable for the dash and headlights ran along the the left side on the inside of the frame. i was able to feed the power cable between the stock zip ties and the stock harness cable. if you look at my photos at the end of this post it shows the USB cable exposed and then hidden. I just attached it to the battery, i wanted to split off the headlight but this way i can charge my phone while its not on.

what wiring kits do you guys use to power your gps? I just don't trust the "no name" wiring kits on ebay/amazon.

I already tried it once and fried the GPS that I had, no worries though, it was 6 years old and super slow.

The burns moto did not have an inline fuse, but they are cheap at radio shack. No issue with mine so far. My iPhone is still working. Except the new maps;)

I have my Garmin Zumo 550 hard wired direct to the battery using the supplied cable. I have run it from the battery under the seat to the frame, then it runs behind the side infill panel to the headstock and up to the RAM mount. It works fine for me.
