Default XC Trunk Plug

Ok Guys and Gals,

I need a huge favor. I am wanting to add a lock and ride trunk to my XC 8 Ball and I need a couple of good pics of the plug/wiring harness under the left side panel to compare mine to. According to the Victory website, they're telling me the XC 8 Ball will not accept the trunk ( says it's not compatible). Would someone mind taking a pic or three of their trunk wiring harness on their XC?? I don't want to spend 1700 bucks on something only to get it in and find out I don't have a wiring harness for it...


I took a pic of the wiring harness on mine, but I'm not sure if it's the wiring harness for the heated seat or the trunk...

Any help anyone can give would be great!!

Thanks!

Thanks jchris!! I would greatly appreciate it. If it's not too much trouble, would you mind snapping a few pics of your mounting point (where the trunk would attach). I am baffled as to why the Vic website is saying the trunk is not compatible with my bike, when I have the plug and what appears to be the exact same rear end as a regular XC/XC Tour.

Regards,

Robert

Gamewarden,

I wish I knew someone with a trunk to "test fit" one before I bought it. How can I get my hands on a service manual?

Thanks...

If they are saying it wont work, maybe they reverted back to the pre 11' models which needed the support brace under the fender
