Roundup of where the accessory powers plugs are - 3 in total

Hi All - I will be posting a new video soon on Rider Reviews 101 youtube.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJTDdG8VEOSK7eyyf3KtBYg

There are three accessory terminal plugs and one for the fogs, all ready to plug into on your AT with no fuss.

Do you all know where they are? If not I'll do a quick review of their locations then put the link up for you to browse.

Email me or post reply here to let me know if you want to see it on [email protected]

I will get the DCT gears review done eventually by the way! :laugh:

Cheers

The obvious 6P OP (Optional Power) connector is under the pillion seat.
The 4P OP is behind the dash.
Checking the wiring diagram, there a no other OP.

Unless the 'terminal plugs' you are referring to are the individual wiring terminals, you are confusing everyone with this 'teaser' post.

To sum up:
the 4P OP has
1. ground
2. Hi beam trigger
3. switched power
4. Fog indicator for dash

the 6P OP (only four terminals are in use)
1. ground
2. always on power
3. switched power
4. Hazard light trigger

What else it there?

Hi DCTFAN,

I found this in another post.
With the 4P, is this what you mean?

Rear 4 Pin socket
Green ground
Red yellow + after contact = switched supply.
Blue = dash board indicator High beam
Blue Black = dash board indicator Fog Light

Yes, different description, but that is the 4P located behind the dash.
IMO, this is the best place to connect driving LED or fog lights.
some models offer two levels of brightness and you can use the
blue wire to accomplish this.
Normal driving the LED is at low level. If you want brighter LED
switch to HI beam and both will light up.
I don't really know how you would use the blue/blk wire?

I was under the impression the BLUE is for headlight, as in FOG+Headlight combo, which is offered by Tourtech. I wasn't actually sure what exactly the headlight line is for...

And the Blue/Black is ONLY Fog, which is for the version I have ordered from TT.
I planned on using the Blue/black wire along with a OEM fog switch so the dash lights up when I turn the fog on.

In theory anyways... Got the OEM Switch, the OEM Honda splitter harness... But still no fog from TT...

Miserable sod :)
There are three connectors spare from standard and its not a teaser. I've been on holiday and didnt get it done before I left.
There is one for accessories behind the dash, tucked up and away under the fairing AND under the seat (alarm connector normally but you can wire a plug in to suit your use)

Will post asap. 0:)

Right!
You keep repeating there are three and only locate two.
Hope you know the third location.
I can't wait for your magic plug reveal

Already got my popcorn out, so don't take too long.

Just said in my previous post there are 3? Listed them too.
ONE - just behind the dashboard gubbins, behind the visor
TWO - under the seat
THREE - to the offside of the bike, tucked under the side flank fairing - there are in fact two here, one for the FOGs and one more plug for accessory control

Et voila.
MAGIC :nerd:

he has time to reply that there is a third plug, but not enough time to tell us all where it is... Maybe he has a OEM splitter for the front plug.

I love magic tricks as long as they don't trick you

Well, this post has gone from 'teaser' to 'magic trick' and I can't wait
what will be next. Maybe someone/something will blow up?
Great entertainment on a rainy day!:grin2:

Well you're certainly a 'funny guy'

I'm trying to help people here, you keyboard warrior.

Read my post again, I explained where they are. The one on the offside flank under the fairing is a plug AND there is a fog connector too. So that's three connectors and a fog plug.

Which part are you struggling with? :confused:

Thanks, you're not so bad yourself except when it comes to helping people.
Why don't you just post a photo or diagram and get this over with?

Nobody has any idea when you say "offside flank under the fairing".
If you really want to post helpful information, use terminology that everyone can understand:

I had taken off the "front spoiler", the "left middle cowl", the "right fuel tank side cover" and "right middle cowl" then the "left inner panel cover" to install my accessory plug per the OEM installation guide.
Nowhere during the process, did I encounter what you are describing.

Help us out here. 0:)

Yes pls. I'd like to know where the one for the fog is. Thx
There is a dedicated fog plug and accessory plug on the offside under the fairing. It's even got a FOG label on it.
I have taken the front fairing apart to install the power socket, and have not seen this fog plug you mention.
I also checked the Honda OEM fog unit installation, it shows that Honda also uses the same plug for both power socket or fog. And users can split this via a splitter cable... No mention of an extra plug.

Could you post up photos so it's clearer for everyone? I'm not sure what you mean by offside under the fairing...
Thanks.

You mean YOU don't have any idea. You aren't everyone.
I don't know how to post a pic but will look into it. It's under the offside indicator, behind the side panel tucked up under the plastic. When you took the right side panels off ( which is offside by the way) it is there. Just look.

No need for the clever sarcastic tone by the way.

If you don't understand OFFSIDE just say. :confused:

I'll try to post a photo. The cable is tucked up behind the air intake for the air box on the offside
