Im looking to mount my helix 7 onto my 2020 expedition sport on the handle bar or on the handlebar support. The battery is behind the seat so i am wondering if anyone has ran the power cable under the seat and up through the handle bar? Any pictures of your setups will be nice!

Following. I have to wire my gps as well. I was thinking that going to the stator might be the easiest.

I did one last fall and connected directly to the battery. I used a fish tape from the left side of the machine and went under the seat to the battery. Added a fuse by battery for the wiring fish tape went threw with a little work.

I use a good clip and hook up to the live side of the solenoid behind the secondary clutch, which powers a lighter plug that I strap to the riser, and plug my Gps into that. You could run the wires through the steering column but I just go beside the side panel cuz I don’t always need it

Lots of info here on running a wire from the live side of the solenoid. I have done four installs of GPS Units this way, we always hard wire our GPS Units in, so we can have continuous power.

With a volt meter.  The live side will have 12 volts.  The other will have zero.

If you have a look at it, it is the one with the cap over it. There is also a very good grounding position on the steering column, look to your left, just behind the secondary clutch.

With my Helix 9, I made a Humminbird power plug that wires it to a 12v cigarette lighter plug, which I have installed in the glove compartment. I don't believe I have any pictures of it on the sled, but it's nothing special. RAM mount with a RAM Clamp to the handlebar, wire just feeds into the glove compartment. I wired it this way so I can remove it easily and power it with a portable battery box that also has cigarette plug when I get to my spot and want it in the flip over shanty.

Is the red cap in this picture the live side of the solenoid? If so, how do I access it to attach a wire for my gps?
