Default Dongle ?????

Ok, got the fairing off and hopefully someone can jump in and educate me. Bought a Victory Dongle for bluetooth but can't find where it plugs in. I thought there was an empty plug just hanging waiting for the Dongle !! Can someone help please !!?? Don't see any empty plugs.

Sure. I've done a couple of these.

If you have one dongle, you'll need the bluetooth harness also.

If you have two dongles ( if your passenger also needs a headset and wants to listen to music ) you'll need the harness and an additional jumper harness.

There is a square plug covered by a black blank on the left side of the radio if you are looking at the back of the radio. The harness plugs into that plug then the dongle plugs into the harness.

So, you buy the dongle and still need to buy an additional harness? That's silly...

OK, I know what plug you're talking about on the radio. I did find that but I thought there was already a harness there. Now, where do I get the harness ?? I will have the bike apart for a couple of days since I am also fixing a radio problem. I installed the Polk speakers and Fosgate amp and all was good until a couple of days ago. Long story short, one speaker is bad. Now, do I go with the Polks again or something else ? This sucks that the speaker went bad already. Anyway, thanks to all for the replies. If you know where I can get the harness please reply . Thanks again !!

I believe this is what you are looking for if you are using a single dongle set up. Victory part# 2878065. It's about $70 and it's a Victory part. I've seen them on eBay for a little cheaper. If your dealer doesn't have one in stock....eBay May be quicker, as sellers typically sell only what they have in stock.

I'm not sure but I don't think that caused the speaker to go bad. I stuck my finger in behind the connectors on the speaker and I did get it to work for a split second but now nothing. I would rather just get a new speaker than try to work on this one. Even if I got it to work how long would it last ??Amp is set on "3" I think. I figured I could get the harness from Victory; I was asking if there was anyplace else. Thanks for all the help everyone !!!
