Hello, fellow riders. I got a brand new 2019 Tracer 900 last November, and I immediately installed a ton of stuff that makes life easier, like you all know, and among those items was a SAE connector under the passenger seat, for use with a battery tender. I've been meaning to post this for a while, but when I was installing the side luggage supports, I found what looks exactly like a SAE connector on the left rear side (see picture). I followed the wiring, and it has an inline 15A fuse and then gets lost with all the other wires getting to the battery. The brand name on the rubber cover for that connector (Optimate) makes me believe this is, yes, a SAE connector wired straight to the battery, but I didn't risk connecting anything to it without being sure. Did anyone else have this in their bikes? Happy riding!
Hoping someone with more electrical expertise than I have can help me out. Electrical stuff always befuddles me, but I have done my share of electrical work by taking it slow and asking when I'm not sure. I bought my 2019 Tracer 900 GT, and replaced the rear end with a Custom LED tail light. Blinkers are integrated into the tail light, and the installation went very easily. At the end of the install, I realized that my license plate light didn't have a source for power, so I don't have a light on my plate right now. (Red wire in the picture is the wire from the license plate tail light) I am also about to install a fuze block next week. (It has been ordered, and is on it's way to me as we speak.) I think I have two options: Splice a switched wire on the bike, so I can connect the license plate light to that wire and get the license plate light to come on when I turn the key on. I think one of the three wires coming out of the white connector (blue, yellow, black) is switched, and that is what I installed the Fuze Block on my old FJ 09. Anyone know which wire color is the switched one? I can also wait for the fuze block, and run the license plate wires into the fuze block on one of the switched sections. This will still require me to splice a switched wire for the fuze block anyway, so I think waiting for the fuze block, and installing that first makes the most sense. Advantage of installing the license plate light directly to the wire behind the white connector is that it saves a space on the fuze block, but I'm not sure if that creates any safety issues rather than just running it into the fuze block directly. I did this on my old 2015 FJ 09, and If I remember correctly, I cut one of the three wires (yellow/blue/black) coming out of the white connector, and then re-connected the two wires I just cut along with the wire that goes into the fuze block for switched power. Anyone know which of the three wires (blue/yellow/black) are switched? Sorry this is so long, and any help is appreciated......... Image 1 - red wire is for the license plate light mounted on top of my license plate holder - right now it has no power. Black wire is grounded to the screw just to the left of the wire. Image 2 - PIcture of wire plug with color wires (Blue/Yellow/Black) - Which one is Power?
