    I noticed in the fuse box that the Adventures have the acc 1 & 2 circuits just as my '08 Super Duke did. My question is, where are the wires for it? :eyes I know the Super Dukes had them located behind the headlight, but I wanted to ask before I take the bike apart and find that they aren't there. I have a 2012 Adventure if that makes a difference.
    Thanks!

    Same - behind the headlight.

    I just went through this exercise with my 2012 yesterday while installing heated grips. I found the two acc connections behind the headlight on the left side. The acc1 connection is actually powering the factory dash-mounted cigarette plug. The acc2 connection was folded up and stuffed back into the space behind the headlight. I found it by following the acc1 wire backwards from the cigarette plug.

    Excellent, thanks for the help. I would assume that the acc1 is constant then (since the factory cig lighter is always powered) and 2 will be remote with the ignition... I will test it before I wire up my accessories.
