Doesn't seem to matter what I search for, it doesn't match any criteria.

What am I doing wrong? I'm trying to wire a source for my Garmin Zumo and am just looking for the proper routing

Try text without quotes. Even not logged in it still works for me. In fact I just tried it and all was good.

Be sure to type in the top box, for keywords. Not the bottom box for authors.

is that the only thing you want power to? if so just snake a wire from the battery to the front under the floorboards. But if your going to do that just make it a 10 gauge and install a power block up front so you can have power available for anything else you might want later.
there are a few threads on installing a fuse block or power block up front.

just a couple I selected

the last one is one of the first by luthorhuss.

Also restrict your search to only the MP3 form.

But if you want all scooters on MV then dont restrict your search to just the MP3s.

The trick is to use general terms, not specific, and avoid spellings that exclude rather than include. For example, if you're looking for a thead about wiring, there's a good chance it will talk about at least one "wire"; but it may or may not contain "wiring" or, for that matter, "wires." ("wire" is part of "wires," but "wires" is not part of "wire.")

Or are you saying that there is something wrong with the Modern Vespa search page, and no matter what you do you are getting no hits? That's another tip: when asking for help, be as specific as possible so fellow members don't go off and give advice on something else. So when searching, be general and terse; when asking for help, be specific and detailed.
Note the two generic, and generically spelled, search terms.

These may or may not be what you are looking for, but at least I've got hits.

What jeff said. Also, I will usually try searching message titles only on the first try. Let unrelated results to look through and it works surprisingly well. But not always.

Also, since MV is ranked so high in search engines sometimes a google search will bring in better results for topics here.

No, pc'er here. I don't know why I initially had only one query box across from search by author. Or why the box across from key word suddenly appeared. I thought maybe 'cuz I had just joined, but???

No, there's apparently something else going on here. One of the mods will no doubt send a PM to Jess on this. Even if you just joined, even if you are not even logged in at all, you should see the same search fields:
Logged in...
Logged in...
...and not logged in so I could be anybody.
