What are all these wires?

Is it possible to get the Aussie blinker package and just plug it in?
Originally I was poking around trying to grab power for the DS kit without having to run wires all the back to the battery.
Anyone know what those two plugs are for?

I am no electrical engineer
On the wiring routing page for the front of the bike I saw nowhere the two open plugs

I'm not sure what connectors you are talking about. There's a 4 pin with a cap on it coming out of the speedometer. I think it's for some remote control device they used to sell. There's something they call "joint connector" where a bunch of stuff that needs grounded meets up. They're all black wires though, no 12V positive. I can look in the morning, I don't remember seeing what you are describing. OK, there was a joint connector with all positive wires, I think it is 17 in the diagram. The diagram shows a couple more connectors, 11 and 12 that appear to have an empty pin. I didn't see them on my bike. There was a big section of harness that was taped up. I think they might be in there. I guess you could get switched power from one of those connectors if you added a pin.

They are taped up in the main harness coming around the head tube.
The grounding theory makes sense cause like I said it had a pin under the cap connecting them all together and there was 5 hot wires and one ground
Thanks for the info
Always nice to find someone helpful!

Leads me to believe there for power to some after market stuff
I see these bike come with blinkers in Australia. Could these be the plugs.

There's probably a sub-harness that has plugs for the turn signals, brake light switch, horn, and the left side switch assembly, high beam indicator, green turn signal dash lamp, forgot about those 2; oh yeah, neutral light. The harness might have a couple pins to tap into those connectors for ground and 12V. I don't know where to buy those 6 pin joint connector assemblies, they would make for a clean install. I use posi-twists which are nice but they don't look factory.

I've noticed wr F and wr FE on different literature
Must be the diff between the street legal euro version and the bike sold in US
nice that the harness is already installed
Wish it were easier to find the factory street legal set up here
I've got a baja design kit coming. Would be nice if it plugged right in
It would eliminate a whole mess of wires
