bought a tusk wiring harness have pretty much every thing hooked up, However I recently found that if i hit any of the switches (brake, turn signals, horn) on the tusk harness it will turn on regardless if the ignition switch is on or off. would their on/off switch change it where it only operates when turned on. Also followed this post about wiring up the headlight http://www.thumperta...r450-headlight/ it works but only when the bike is running, is there a way to have control of the 35w bulb just with the ignition on too?

No not the way its hooked up. You would have to separately wire it to the battery.

alright thanks, one more thing. I think i have a ground problem. any exposed wire connectors from the tusk harness will cause that wire to arcing if it touches the frame.
so my set up on the harness is i cut the three wire tail light connector from the tusk harness. I then only cut the yellow stock wire and then connected it to the 12v brake light on the tusk. for some reason that didn't light up my brake light with the switch so then found out that if i touched the 12v running light on the tusk to the battery, the switch for the brake would work right. but now with that wire connected to the battery it will cause the wires to spark when touched to the frame. when it off the brake doesn't work however there is not arcing.

I know i could of hook it up that way, but doing it that way only give the option of having one brake switch instead of front and rear switch, right?
