HJC Heated Helmet Hook up

I am attempting to hook my heated visor but I am having difficulty figuring out wich wire to splice it into. Is yellow hot or is brown hot. Does it have to be grounded through the electrical system or can I ground it to the sled itself. Any help would be great would like to get it up and running. 03 F7

Should be a 2-prong accessory plug right near the steering post in the engine bay, there's also one near the servo motor, and there should also be one behind your tach/speedo ... yellow is power, brown is ground, but I'd suggest getting an accessory plug instead of splicing wires.

Another suggestion I found on the inter-webs:

There is a connector behind the servo motor, it's two prong. You can get the matching haft of the connector at Walmart or any autoparts store (2 wire flat plug in the trailer section, one red, one white wire). Then go to Radio shack and get a panel mount RCA connector (274-346), 4 come in a package. Now you need a place to put the connector. Look on the console, on the left side is your key, look on the right side and you will see the same buldge with an 1 1/2" flat spot. Drill an 1/4 inch hole in it and mount the RCA jack. Solder the wires up and you have a profestional installation job.

The local stealership around here had the exact plug he is describing above...RCA style with a flat 2 prong ready to go for $7...it was sold as an HJC adapter. Plugged into an existing pigtail behind the servo motor. No cutting or splicing required!

Does anyone have a Pic of this location. I am really struggling with finding the open connector. Does it make a difference if it is battery and has electric start or batteryless?

These connection points are all 12V A/C correct? Powered from the lighting & heated grips circuit?

No pic, but take the 2 screws out that hold the servo motor on. Easier than trying to fish for it.

On mine it wasn't an empty connector but plugged into a dummy connection so it looked like it went to something when in fact it didn't. Behind the servo motor is a large loom of wired tied off to the steering column area. Pull them out and look for the Brown and Yellow wires.

Nope, I put them on an EFI, one with battery, one without, carb sleds, etc...
