Lot's of options. 1) Follow the light bar manufacturers instructions. 2) Purchase a Kury, or other brand, aux switch with relay and follow their instructions. 3) Build your own sub harness and wire it in (relay recommended). I'd be cautious about the total wattage of the lights. Check that out before wiring them in, to avoid stator issues. Good luck.

I would strongly suggest you run individual set of wire with relay and fuse.
this will not avoid the warrenty as long as you are not slicing into the OEM wire.
Most of the light bar light bulb are H3 i think, usually 35Watt each.
so total you put extra 70 watt to the bike and thats pretty much maxed out from manufatry suggested extra wattage for acc.
there are ways to save more watt for other Acc. i swap out all signal and break and plate bulb to LEDs and its a big difference when you see the battery gauge go up and stay up......good luck.
