    Ignition Trigger Wire

    This is from a 2013 thread:

    “... the famous connector under the left hand panel has 4 wires on my CT
    Wire 1= green and is an Earth/ ground
    Wire 2= White with a Green stripe and is a permanent live
    Wire 3= Black with a Yellow stripe and is the ignition on supply
    Wire 4= Red with a Blue stripe. No supply at any position, the French Wiring diagram posted on here shows it going to the indicator/hazard  or "Answer back" terminal/switch but even with this on there is a flicker of voltage but no 12v on and off so I will have to investigate further .”

    Can anyone verify if wire 3 (black with yellow strip) is the ignition on (trigger) power supply for a 2017 VFR? I’ve located the wire and spliced into it, but it’s not providing power to a fuseblock I’m installing. Either my splice is bad, I have an inoperative fuseblock, or wire 3 is not the trigger wire on a 2017 VFR.

    Best,

    Bottom line up front (BLUF), the connector under the left hand panel is not useable as a 12v trigger wire (ignition on) electrical source on a 2017 VFR 1200XD.

    My multimeter measurements:

    Wire 1= Green - Earth/ground/neutral
    Wire 2= White with a Green stripe - Permanent 12v live
    Wire 3= Black with a Yellow stripe - No power at ether off or on ignition positions.
    Wire 4= Red with a Blue stripe. This wire confuses me as I don't have a background in electrics. With ignition off the multimeter reads .1v. With the ignition on it reads 36v. At any rate, it would not work as a trigger wire.

    Based on the electrical volt readings, none of the wires on the connector were usable as trigger source for the Neutrino Element (www.neutrinoblackbox.com) power distribution block I was installing. Time to find an alternate source.
