The bike is buttoned back up again, but below is a pic of the mating . connector on the unit I removed. The female connector on the bike wiring harness is what I need to connect to.
And I think I know what the issue is. When the dealer installed the unit, +12V was only on one side of the 3 lug connector which supplied power only to the "non HID" high beam filament on the bulb. The second of the 3 lugs also needs +12V power to supply the ballast. I found this out by connecting the HIDSRus harness, bulb and ballast to my Mazda Miata OEM HL harness with 2 power terminals (one for low beam and one for high). Sure enough the HID portion fired right up.
So, I need an adapter cable to supply power to the Victory HID as I was trying to explain to CR, or I'll reinstall the HIDSRus unit and jumper +12V to the second "hot" pin on its connector to allow it to work.
What I do know is that the connector type supplied on the Victory HID unit is not correct fopr my 2012 Vision, but I now know how to work around that.
Will let you know when I get the HID back in the bike.
