Does anyone have any thoughts on whether using The Harley Davidson's Electrical Connection Update Kit to connect to P&A connector under the rear shocks would work?

It probably will, but it's overkill. You'll get a red power wire that has a fuse that you won't be able to use because it connects to the 12V battery on ICE Harley's. The port under the shock is a Molex connector (a bitch to get to) that only has a power wire and ground running to it. I don't know yet if the power wire is switched, but I'm guessing it is not. Other posts suggest there is a way to hook up a three way splitter and get switched power, but I haven't figured out how and nobody has responded to my question of how to do it. Good luck. Rick
Hey @GoldenOldie,

Thanks for your helpful info. I decided to just call Livewire tech support. Great people. They told me that the P&A molex connector below the rear shock is only powered when ignition is on. The harness kit above will work and was recommended. While the "red power wire that has a fuse" included in the kit is not necessary for the Livewire One, it could be used for other purposes if you wanted to run a lead directly from the battery.

As for connecting directly to the battery, they actually told me that this is perfectly fine, contrary to the information saying otherwise, so long as your overall total amp pull for all accessories does not exceed 8 amps and your connection has a fuse. Anything under 8 amps, would not drain the 12v battery faster than the main bike battery would keep it charged.

Cheers!
