    Hi,

    Can I get a 12 volt feed (+ and -) from anywhere in the bike, perhaps from the rear lights? I will soon be fitting a Zona rear-view camera system and it requires a feed from a normal bike battery which obviously my Model 30 City doesn’t have but I’m guessing the lights must be using a 12 volt feed from somewhere.

    All help greatly appreciated,

    Thanks,

    Jeremy

    I would hazard a guess that the rear light would be the easiest, but remember it is only going to be live when the lights are on.

    You might be better picking up a feed inside the front panel, all the handlebar controls pass through there, and then feeding it back from there under the frame.

    I don’t mind that it’s not on when the lights are off since I will always ride with the lights on and this will be a good reminder in case they aren’t. There’s no other places to pick up the feed I assume?

    Not sure to be honest, mine has been uber reliable so I haven’t really had to poke around with it since I first built it.

    There is the side stand switch at the stand hinge, you might be able to take something from the live side of that.
