I re-routed the Power Wire to a (Aux) Relay-Power Supply, and now the Audio Unit only operates when the bike is running. I randomly selected a 2 Amp fuse to control the circuit. I've tested it for a week now, no problems.

The Power Wire is one of 2 Red Wires going into the White Connector under the Seat... As you look at the connector (from the Audio Side) it is in the top right corner.
One question, which side of the connector did you use to reroute power? The digital audio player side or the bike side.
I'd be more prone to remove the wire from the digital audio power plug than the motorcycle plug. But that is me.
