Default Mysterious plug

I've only owned my 2012 XCT for 3 weeks now and well I am still learning about it . I took off the left side cover and saw a plug hanging there with a rubber cap on it . Curious as to what its for ?

I am looking into adding extra lights and would like to identify this .
Thanks for any assistance

You'd have to post a photo for us to be able to ID that connector. For adding lights and accessories, install a fuse block supplied directly from the battery +. Use a relay to activate it so its off when the ignition is off.

This is just a wild guess but could it be for the optional Vic reverse kit that can come on these bikes from the factory or be installed by the dealer?

G'day,

That is not the reverse plug; that is the small triangular white plug on top of the transmission. I do not know what this one is for, however...

Can't imagine Vic would have changed the wire colors from 2010 to 2014, but stranger things have happened. If it's a 8 wire plug, my bet is the trunk plug. Would def help to know if a trunk is or is not installed.

I have a 2012 XCT (two actually) and have the trunks off of both most of the time. The plug does not have a cover as the one in the picture does. Maybe the plug cover was added in later model years.

G'day,

Vinish
