I have a base model Kodiak without the third light. I am working on installing a 12" Auxbeam LED light bar.

As I was going through the wiring harness, I discovered two bullet connectors sealed in clear plastic. One is male, one female. The hot side comes on with the key in the on position.

What are these leads for? Can I use them for my light bar?

I have two leads that are zip tied to the left handle bar with a rubber cap on them. One is black, the other white. Dealer told me they are for a battery tender. Mine r hot all the time, switch on or off. I verified this with a test light. If yours is switched with the key it makes me think it is wired thru one of the fuses, although I don't know if the the spare fuses (if thats how it is wired) are switched or not thru they key. Sounds like you could wire anything up to them that does not exceed the fuse rating. I'd veryify that it's switched thru the key and then try to identify which fuse it is wired to by tracing the wire and/or pulling a fuse one at a time and seeing if you loose power. Did u ask the dealer, or is there one u can call? Anybody else that can weigh in on this?

What mount did u get for your light bar. Is there a chance you could post pics?

Does anyone here has a wiring diagram? Maybe a scan from the Service Manual? It could help figure out what those wires are for...I need to wire a winch in the near future and i'll help me on that front also.

Haven't seen anything still. surprised no one has been able to leak it out, with this market I thought someone on the inside could make it possible unless there's some encryption that makes it harder for them.

The two wires i used are activated with the key.

I will connect my fused Battery Tender pigtail directly to the battery posts.

I used the 7/8 handlebar mounts from ebay. They were under $10. Quality is "ok".....dont expect a billet piece for that money.
