Can anyone give me advice or a picture of how you wire the HJC heated face shield on your snowmobile. It has an RCA type plug which will wire to my battery but I am trying to figure out the best way to run it out from under my hood.....any suggestions or ideas on how this should or has been done.

Thanks,
DW

well it would be nice to know what sled you have however, if it is a firecat there is an accessory plug behind your servo motor for you power valves. unbolt the motor and locate the plug. i use a hjc too and what i did was bought an accessory plug from my dealer (the two pin male that plugs into the female behind the servo) and spliced that onto the wiring that came from the shield. i mounted the rca female jack in a hole drilled where the choke would be on a carbed firecat.

Sorry I didn't mention that I have 2 panteras - how did you mount the RCA jack? - I will wire it directly to the battery but am wondering how did you mount the jack in the dash? Did you drill and how did you keep the jack in place?

Thanks,

Go to your local Cat dealer or order on -line from somebody the wiring harness for this job, it's only a few bucks and a lot less screwing around than wiring to the battery. One end is a double prong harness which plugs into the wiring of the sled, usually under the handlebar cover, the other end is the RCA female plug with a ribbed case. Drill a hole in the cover by the key or wherever and just jam the RCA plug into it and the ribbing will hold it in place.

If you don't want the wire hanging off your helmit and flailing around while you drive, some guys run it thru their jackets and out the sleeve, in that case just plug the harness in and let the RCA plug part come out the handlebar someplace. Just remember it is plaugged in before exiting the machine or you'll rip the cords out.
