    Hey gang, hoping someone can help. I noticed awhile back that there was no power to the 12v outlet in my fairing. I took off the right side cover to check the fuse and it was good. I then can to the forums and found a thread (can't seem to locate it today) where a couple guys were saying that this can come unplugged inside the fairing. I decided it wasn't important enough to worry about at that time...fast forward and I have got a few days of cold weather and rain in the forecast so I thought I would dive into the investigation. Well I got the outer fairing off, and then had to remove the left hand "speaker enclosure?" Sure enough the 12v outlet has two bare leads on the backside. Only problem is that I don't see a plug anywhere...Could it be that when the P O had the "Extreme Audio 6 speaker set up" added they cut the plug for the 12v off and used it to power the amp? Anyone have a picture of what the plug is supposed to look like?

    I'll bet that's exactly what the PO did. Mine are cheesy, cheap white connectors with single wires for each. Don't have my fairing off right now so I can't take a picture for you.

    Thanks sub dude, I have looked at it gone over with a fine tooth comb and come to the conclusion of the connectors just aren't there. Now my dilemma is where do I find a 12 volt power supply to power of that outlet or preferably a USB outlet

    You all see that white connector with white wire under the circle vision nut posted? That's what my 12V cig lighter/ power is on my XC

    There is another connector on the left side, inside the fairing ( right side of the bike) inside the fairing on XC. It was unused on my XC and I wired my Cirrious lights to it.

    Duh! I quoted my own post to edit it. Sorry! Bigfoot will probably chastise me for etiquette.

    Thanks guys. Getting back at it today and hoping to have her buttoned up in time for the polar bear ride tomorrow. I suppose I can ride the Vegas if needs be, but that XC sure is a warmer ride lol. Hooking up the DGD keyless while I am at it.

    Well got her buttoned back up, still no 12v, but on the bright side, the Digital Guard Dawg is working great!

    Did you see an unused connector right next to the harness where you plugged in the DGD? That's where mine is.

    Saw one connector (well pair of plugs) one I assume was a ground/return and the other was constant hot. Just a little hesitant to use the wires without knowing where they come from of what fuse they go through. I will try and find the wiring diagrams and tackle it when I do the HMD bars that are sitting on the shelf calling to me ;)

    I thought the 12v connector was powered up all the time. If someone disconnected it to power an amp how is the amp shutting down? Speaker signal? Only other thing to do is run a set of fused wires to the battery. That will give you a direct connection to plug a Battery Tender cig lighter gizmo in and keep your battery up.
    Just a thought.
