Wiring in some heated grips

Ok. Panels off, headlight out, looking for acc1 or 2. Huh. The only writing on anything is "Cablaggio Esatto ". Italian in my Austrian steed? What the... No other markings on wires that I can find. I searched through everything I could find, looking for photos. Couldn't see anything.

2013 Baja. Did they change things around?

Mine has the. HID's wired from the factory. Did they use up the switched acc2 outlets? Only bullet connectors I can see.

Help. Me. Please.

Thanks.

James

Trace back the wires from the socket on the dash.
You will find 2 pairs of 1/4" spade connectors.
Use the red/black wire (12v) and brown (ground) wires, these are ACC2 and switched by the ignition.

Ok, tracing wires. I can find nothing labeled, only one paper tag wrapped yellow with red stripe and solid brown pair, from which one HID is powered. Other HID is powered by another pair of red striped yellow and solid brown wires. This from the factory. Or maybe the KTM shop? Did they use up the two ACC2 pairs for the lights?

Five wires (plus two black jumpers) come out of the back of dash's left - most block, and the two pairs (powering HID'S) peel back out of another snap together block, and all of the rest of those take off and head down into the main bunch down the frame.

Next block to the right plugs into headlight.

No free pairs anywhere.

I've looked through the HOW for wiring diagrams. Found none.

If they did use the acc2's up, what would you guys suggest. Straight to the battery? Run both HID's off of one pair and the grips off of the other?

Where is acc1 hook up?

Thank you!

Sounds to me like you found them!

You can connect another wire to the ACC wires, just splice into it.

Thank you! Do you think it unlikely to be too much of a load, that is, grip warmers and a single HID on one acc2 pair?

If I remember correctly, the Baja aux lights are LED, not HID. IF so, the grips probably pull more current.

I think you'll be fine.
