I use a Hex Ezcan on my 2011 BMW R1200RT and rather than tap into a ignition power source I hooked up the 'yellow' wire to a circuit on the EzCan that powers up my auxiliary driving lights. The Ezcan comes on and off with ignition and works through the can bus system. This way no tapping into an ignition source wire. For those of you who have Ezcan this is an alternative hook up for K2.
@Michael Williams asked in in another thread where we are all from. I am interested in this, too. But as we should not spam a thread about a technical problem with off-topic posting, I decided that is would be better to create a separate thread for this. So here it is and everybody is invited to tell us where he/she is from and show us how international this forum is. I am located in a small city beside Duesseldorf, Germany, and riding a Tiger 1200 XRT.
