Default ACC/IGN wire

Hello, I'm looking at getting a Tsukayu fairing with GPS and it has 3 wires. 2 for the battery and 1 for the ACC/IGN wire. Instructions say it's under the ignition but I'm having a hard time locating any wires. How do you remove the cover and what color is the wire? The fairing comes with a wire tap so I won't have to cut anything. My bike is a Victory Vegas 8 Ball 2013.

The ignition switch wire is brown and orange. I can't confirm if that is the wire you're looking for though, but that's from the 2013 Vegas Service manual.

These are the only wiring instructions I have. Think that should be the correct one. http://www.tsukayu.com/WiringHarness.html

If I understand what's going on here -- and I skimmed the PDF instructions ( http://www.tsukayu.com/Iinstallation...0Fairing_s.pdf ) -- what I think is happening is that you just need a trigger for some internal relay (that they don't seem to mention).

That is:

1) The hookup shows that you get all the juice you need by that direct connection (with in-line fuse) to the battery.

2) Therefore, my personal sort of educated guess is that you don't need to connect that other wire to any particular ignition wire. What I think they're saying, or at least implying, is that that third wire needs to get connected to some wire that's hot when the bike's on, and not hot when the bike's off.

If I'm correct and that wire is merely being used as a trigger, you could tap into any old wire that's hot only when the bike's on. You could tap into a headlight or taillight wire, for instance.

BTW, I really don't like those "scotch" tap-in connectors (or whatever they're called). I don't think they make reliable connections. Instead, I'd opt for a Posi-Tap (which are available at a lot of NAPA stores), for instance, the particular one being the proper size for the wire gauge you're tapping into.

Cheers,

He says a he has a 2013 Vegas 8 ball in the last line of the post. Wspollack is right, you can tap into any wire that's hot with key on. I agree with the Scotch Tabs being not very good.
