Wiring on 2008
« on: August 16, 2013, 03:35:36 pm »
Where can I pick up an accessory hot wire under the seat on an 08?  I don't need much power but /i do want a switched source.
There is a black/yellow tucked in with the three connectors near the tail.  Is that it?   What are those connectors for? The are all plugged.

The black and black/yellow are the accessory leads. I believe they are switched with the ignition. Should have bullet connectors on them. One male and the other female. If I am not mistaken, the +12 wire is the female one.

Not sure on current limits with the accessory circuit.

There's another pair in the front of the bike inside the rubber boot under black panel on the left. I tapped into that for some led lighting I installed in the fairings for increased visibility at night.

If your speaking of the wires in the rear of the bike under the seat, they are not them. The rear accessory wires are not under the seat in view. They are farther back under the tail, behind other stuff. They are under a black boot with other wiring connections. The Black and yellow should be negative or ground if you will. (has the male bullet connector) The black wire should be your positive 12 volt wire. (has the female bullet connector)

Oh, now that I actually read the title of the thread. The 2008 has the accessory circuit consiting of the two sets of accessory wires (front and rear), as well as the outlet socket on the dash. Your total circuit is fused a 10 Amps on the 08-09 C14's.

Thanks everybody.  Especially Fred H. The photos are magic. I thought the ones to the left of the ECU were the ACC leads.  Glad I asked the question.
