I have had a few problems adding my bikes alarm/gps unit. I need a 12 volt switched power wire under the seat to tap. Both solid yellow wires I was told to try by the gps company are 12 volt constants so they will not work. Any info would be really appreciated.

The yellow going to the tail light has to be switched otherwise your battery would have been dead long ago.

You do know that there is a wiring diagram in your owner manual? If you don't have a magnifying glass handy you could look at the wiring diagram online at the Ducati site.

I did my alarm a couple of years ago, but I do remember using the switched 12V that OnD described. I also ran a wire down to the battery for constant power, but if I were to do it again I would tap in under the seat to the connector there. I have the Optimate 047 SAE adaptor there for charging anyway...
