Exclamation dauntless wiring HELP!!!!

Hi all;

I received the Dauntless hitch from a member Friday.

I am in the process of trying to understand the wiring harness I received with the hitch( picture below).

Fromtop left: the covered 4 wires( middle of the picture), I assume go to the plug on the hitch. The long red wire (seems like it has a fuse and is connected to the neg side of the battery)?? and it has two wire that clip somewhere ( middle right side) to the wires on the bottom left, goes to the lights?? has two plugs that look like they fit the two red wire plugs on the black box that has the red wire going to the neg battery side????

The other 4 wires (bottom left are for the lights on the rear??

I have a drawing but hard to understand. It seems like there is a few more wires then on the drawing.

The hitch looks good and was easy to install, its the wires!!!

If ANYONE can help, would be much appreciated!!!

Can't ride till I get this hooked up!!!

Picture attached.

Regards,
Bowdon

Post a pic of the wiring diagram. One thing for sure is the orange wire with the fuse and connector goes to Positive battery terminal.

Re: dauntless wiring HELP!!!!

The best place to "pick up" your wiring is behind the taillight,
there's a rubber grommet that you can 'push/pull" the wires trough,
the relay itself fits and is easily accessible under the passenger seat.

I suggest you print this and keep it on the bike, in case you ever have a problem.

Re: dauntless wiring HELP!!!!

I've got the mounting instructions, this is what it says about the wire harness.(k12LT).

a) The Yellow wire in the harness is for the left turn signal and it attaches to the socket where the blue wire with a red trace is attached.
b) The red wire is for the brake light. It attaches to either one of the brake light sockets where a gray and yellow wire is attached.
c) The brown wire is the Bowdoin. It attaches to either one of the taillight sockets where a grey and blue wire is attached.
d) The white wire is the ground wire. It can be attached to any one of the light sockets to the ground wire.
e) The green wire is the right turn signal. It attaches to the right turn signal socket where the blue and black wire is attached.

Suggest removing one wire at a time at the rear tail light sockets and then plugging the wire harness onto the tail light socket. The wire that was on the socket now plugs into the trailer wiring harness.

Good luck, hope this helps.

Dennis;

The drawing I have is of the plugs only. I understand the wire colors to the light connections ( yellow, green, white and red, except the red and brown wires have two connections on them, and the white and red are into a Bosch relay and then have wire connestors at the end, and shown in the picture in my previous email. I have attached two pictures of the red and white wires going into the relay then out with wire connections on them, I assume they hook to the lights in the rear. The brown and red wires ( with the two connections, I assume they go on both lights ) red both brake lights, and brown both tailight sockets??

I don't think the relay ( square ) would bolt or ti-wrap somewhere to the frame behind the seat but the wired don't look long enough ( white is 6" long from the relay). Could I velcro the relay where the wiring plug is in the rear light?

Right???

Don

Question Re: dauntless wiring HELP!!!!

Hi all;

I figured it out with the help of all that emailed!!

Now just got to get the wire through the grommet ( behind the rear lights) for the plug and the batter wire with the fuse.

I saw somewhere, that I can drill a 3/8" hole near the rubber gromet to fit the wires down to the plug.

Anybody have this picture??

Regards,
Bowdon
