Default Victory Wiring

So I started today on the first of my winter projects, change my chrome headlight to a black one to match the rest of my 8 Ball. Anyhow, started taking things apart and by Jesus was there a crap load of wires and connections in there. So my Question is, is all the wiring in these bikes the same whether they are a Vegas or a Cross Country? My reason for asking is there seems to be about 4 or 5 connections that dont connect anywhere and two of them have factory labels attached, one of them says handwarmers and the 2nd is something about front running lights.

To cut coast and make assembling easier yes Vic will use on harness.
Before you cut and eliminate wires think a head. What you do away with you might want later or the next person who buys it might need the wires

Nothing really new about that. Lots of companies anticpate certain things to be added.Some of them may make the upgrading easier.

I have found those unused connectors useful for accessories I have added. I thank Ma Vic for being so prescient to my needs.

I tapped into one of the wires for my running lights when I put the black headlight in.

I like the way all that black makes the pipes stand out visually. Nice choice of car too.
