What's This For?


Took the handle bar covers off the left side, and found two wires that were not connected to anything. Anyone know what the intended use for these wires are for?? I think one was green, and one white. (can't remember for sure)

By the way, Memorial Day weekend is here. Thanks to all who served to protect our freedom.

Respectfully, Chris Ogle

A picture would certainly help.

That's where my push-to-talk (PTT) switch connected... I don't remember the colors of the wires, though.

I think if you go to the intercom/communications forum you will find that the two wires are for the PTT switch. There is a current post on this subject.
