I got a plug from victory. It's always on but only drains power if something is left plugged in. Wired directly to the battery and fused. Mounts to the handlebars

That's what I did

Though the cheaper power port i got apparently wasn't rain resistant, as it collected water between the positive prong in middle and the grounded casing, after a heavy rain, causing a lot of corrosion.

This year I'm gonna get another, more water-tight, and with a usb charging port next to it like one of these

I only got 5v across the connector w/ the blue rubber seal, is it possibly for heated grips?

And the black/yellow w/pink was dead, even with the key on and the bike running. Do I possibly need to add a fuse to make the circuit live?

Check for the fuse under the right cover.

you want 12v not 5. Your socket has to be grounded and like I said it needs 12 volts

OK cool. I did finally get 12v on the 3 pin(Black & Yellow w/Pink) connector with the rubber cap on it, I had to take the connector off to make a good contact with my test light because the connectors were so small. I'm going to use that output for my GPS/phone charger. The 2 pin connector is just a switched 5v. I don't know what that low-voltage output is for, but not anything I'll ever use. I have to give Vic a lot of credit for multiple switched outputs, because I have the running lights already connected, and having another accessory feed in the headlight is super convenient.

Thanks for your help folks!
