Check to see if those plugs are all on the same fuse. If they are, you could install a larger amp fuse there. Then use a smaller amp fuse on each leg. Kinda depends on what your installing and how much amp draw.
those lead are intended as control wires and not to power higher current devices. Most Gamine GPS units are 1A or more (look at the rating of the socket adapter, even an 10 year old 4" garmin I use has a 1A PS. A relay is easy to add expecially when you have the control wire there.i hooked my garmin gps directly to these plugs. and i was planning to hook my usb charging ports and led dome light directly too ( as in no relay ). am planning on installing a fuse for each plug in case of a short or any other issue that could take out all my plugs ( hate to lose my GPS while in the woods because of a short in my dome light. )
i would check my amp draw but my amp meter is for ac amps only.
i would assume i should have no issues with wiring that stuff without a relay??
I would wire it so the switch gets power from the prewired plug and feeds the control side of the relay then run a fused power wire to the relay that would feed your accessory most relays hve the terminals labelled with the same pin numbers so by the numbers I would wire it the following way.Please explain to me how to wire things to these plugs with a relay. I have not done a lot of dc wiring. Going to order the terminal fittings and rocker switches tomorrow. I would go from the rocker switch to a relay and then a fuse between the relay and pre wired plug?
Did you disassemble it? You have to do that in order to separate the wires.I brought these pigtail for my 2020 X2 XTR i though i read some were that the pigtail harness on the machine was positive and negative but when i put my meter on the pigtail i get both leads as positive were is everybody picking up the negative a little confusing and are those pigtails fused any info would help
He is just saying the series tap has no accessible negative run out of it like it should.No i thought they were plug and play so they have to be separated but when you put a meter on the machine side they are both positive coming out of the factory plug where is the negative side.If there is a wiring diagram i would appreciate it
I was going to start a new thread but figured it would be more appropriate to add to this one.
All Yamaha's have a blank connector to keep dirt out of the additional accessory plug. Now if you have an older model, it may make sense to buy the splitter part but us X4 owners have plenty of plugs already (there are at least 6):
You can take that blank plug and buy the pins necessary to convert it to a harness. The male connector (plastic part) uses female pins and the female connector uses male pins (I know pretty confusing). The blanks are FEmale, so we need male pins.
You can get them here, which also has option for 2 different wire gauge sizes:
Male https://www.corsa-technic.com/item.php?item_id=227 (these are what you need for the blanks already provided)
You could also just Google Sumitomo p/n 1500-0105 (male).
Don't forget to order seals as well: https://www.corsa-technic.com/item.php?item_id=351
For under 10 bucks you could get the pin connectors for all your accessory plugs
UPDATE: Received my parts from Corsa. I had ordered the wrong pins (female) and they exchanged them for the male pins as well as combined my shipping
On the right you can see the blank plug which requires male pins:
I ordered two wire gauge sizes:
Simple to crimp on, make sure you bend over the tabs closest to the end as well or the pin won't engage the locking tab:
Ready to go, I only needed the positive lead:
If you're doing reverse lights you'll need the female sockets:
