finding a live for Relay
on: October 26, 2016, 01:05:44 PM
I have an auxilliary fuse box - comes with a piggy back jap 2 way connector that could splice into a 2 core connector ( like they have in most suzuki/yamaha coming from rear brake light) but cannot find a 2 core connector under seat .. only 3 core ......any ideas anyone

Check to see where your number plate light wiring runs.
There is also a rear option connector under the seat, but its a 4 way connector. On this green is earth, Black/Yellow is ign live. Red/green is constant live and pink is a signal line to the flasher can.

That's what it says on the wiring diagram, it goes to the left fuse box and is protected by a 10 amp fuse. It also feeds the grip heaters. You could use a multimeter to check it out if you have one.

I have spliced into the harness coming out of the fusebox. I used the feed to the quartet plug for my heated grips and a usb socket to ensure they turn off with the ignition.

Cheers for all the ideas ..when I came to connect I found the dealer had already spliced a wire for the tomtom so I just positap connected to same wire near fuse box ..for the relay ..all great and the aux fuse box is all set up and working as too are the U5 Cree aux lights I powered from it ..those under 20 quid lights ...will see how long they run ? Removed the U2 chip as per you tube videos to stop the strobe mode ..don't want them flashing like a police rider!

What's your opinion of those lights? I'm considering buying a set of engine bars & those light for myself.

opinion : fitted low down : they dont have any angle change ability so where the bars hold them they point at 90degrees to that position in my case at tge floor mid way between where my main beam hits the road and the front wheel : so not a distance illumination but gives me some 3 point reference for vehicles viewing me in approaching traffic , they say one reason fir smidsey pull outs is your main light gets lost in the car behind : 3 point triangulation is supposed to help them see you as something different ?
rode in mizzle & fog on 30th and dark ride home and felt better for having them there ! not perfect but at least a reassurance that i am lit up a tad!

Good morning

If anyone is looking to fit a switched 12V supply, Murray (VFROC) makes a neat harness that connects into the bikes wiring, Plug and Play.
