It can certainly be done, but I'm not sure you want the extra load on the headlight circuit. Much better to find an accessory connection, or make one, using a relay driven off the light circuit, powered from the battery.
I don't see any problem with current draw, as the GPS is only a tiny amount.hi:
i have a 2004 heritage.
i wanna install gps on windshield. Leader Motorcycle GPS Windshield Mount (for Harley Davidson)
i would like to wire it from the headlight because it would be powered when key is on only.
i wanna connect it using a battery (sae) wiring harness ..

then plug in cable from covverter to gps..
does this sound right?
yes, there is one on right side, but missing the toggle..do you mean a owners manual or repair manual or something like that?..Spotlights, could be accessory. Is there one on the other side? Get yourself a good manual, you'll love yourself for it.
see that brick transformer?.. plus all the wire. i would rather keep wires close to where they are tapped in..plus, the battery tender converter is much smaller..thanxWhat about this?

You could just run it all the way to your battery. It'll cost a little more but with less plugs to worry about disconnecting.
