Default 12 volt plug vs heated shield plug

Captain obvious level inquiry but....my Dragon is all wired up for electric shield right down to the terminal end dangling right there by the handlebar stem. However, the sled doesn't have electric start or a battery. There's no way the shield lead could be converted to run a 12 volt device? Forgive me my stupidity please.

According to the Polaris wiring diagram from the factory service manual,there is a accessory plug that is located down on the lh side of the sled by the shock tower,the colors are red/white and brown the thing is i don't know if it is ac or dc(have not had the chance to verify)or if it can power a gps or such.

Heated shields will work off either ac or dc.

Your red/ white wire is DC. Not many AC wires on newer POO’s anymore electric start or not.

Thanks for clarifying that CFM,I think the OP was possibly looking to run a gps or some other electronics

I was thinking the same thing... I guess the amperage would matter tho. But it's not a winch or a starter or something... I would imagine most electronic devices to be minimal amp draw....

Most sleds w/o electric start come 12v AC.

OP needs to install a rectifier to get DC.

You would have to check if you could plug a rectifier into the RCA helmet plug, if that is what he wants to do.

The OP has not returned to his original postI am assuming that he wants to run a gps or cell phone charger,I under stand where you are coming from regarding the dc voltage,my concern would be is how much draw is he/she going to put on the system and can it handle it.

My heated shield and garmin are hooked to same wires as each other. 12 volt dc wire. Red and white wire. It is dc. I put in 5 amo fuse just in case, never blew it. Over 10k miles .I have a Poo with fuel injection and no electric start.

I have stated above, most modern FUel injected poo’s wiring are mostly DC remote start or not.

I am not sure where some if this other info is coming from but it is not accurate.

Info is free on forums, sooooo 🙂
