I've searched for directions to run power lead from handlebars thru stem to battery (not using the left glovebox)

Once the handlebar Tupperware is removed, how hard is it to snake wires to battery? Follow frame down then around gas tank?

Best to remove the left floor skirt and left rear panel. Fish the wires along the floor frame and then up between/along side the left cubby pocket and radiator.

Rather than crowd the battery + terminal and tight fitting battery cover I added a terminal to the hot side of the starter relay, under the rubber cover (the other end of that battey hot wire). That will get you a non-switched, hot-all-the-time, lead.

I also ran a 2nd hot wire to a switched relay which I mounted above the ECM. That switched hot wire runs forward and is used for other circuits (spot lights, heated grips, etc).

You can also "T" off that 1st hot wire to feed a cigarette lighter / power outlet inside the left cubby.

Don't forget to add fuses to your new circuits.

Easiest way to do this is to put a piglet spade connector on the front brake light switch an take the power from there. Done it on all my bikes and keeps the wiring to a minimal. Also powers down with ignition so no flat battery

I added a fused panel under the seat next to the battery cover. All my electrical add-ons terminate there except for when it needs to be controlled by the ignition switch. That way I have a single location to inspect if any of my add-ons fail. I carry spare fuses just in case.
