wiring help

Just wondering if anyone has had the need to find a hot source with the key on but will turn off when the starter is engaged. I looked through the helpful topics, just figured I'd ask before I get the test light out. I'd rather not tap into any lighting circuit if possible. I'm looking for a trigger for a fuse block I will be installing before the weather breaks. Thanks in advance.

P.S. It's on a '07 919, thought that might be helpful...

Did you look at the wiring diagram linked from the Helpful Topics?

The headlight is all I know of.

There are only two places to tap into a starter activate signal: the Blue / White (headlight cut) wire from the throttle housing harness or the Yellow / Red starter relay wire at the starter.

If tapping into the Blue / White the relay will have to be continuously energized (normally open terminal) and cut off when the starter button is pressed.

If using the Yellow / Red at the starter the NC (normally closed terminal) must be used and the relay only activates when the starter is button is pressed.

In either case the power feed should be connected to the stationary terminal (Bosch type #87 or 87a) to prevent energizing an exposed terminal, and the load connected to the armature (#30) terminal. Additionally, mount the relay with the terminals pointing downward to prevent water accumulation and corrosion.

I strongly recommend a Bosch type relay -- they have a reputation for reliability earned for over 50 years. A quick tutorial, and the connection numbers, can be found here: Relays

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Thanks for the help, now I ned to figure out how to print a copy of the wiring diagram that I can read or break down and buy a real manual...
