White wire with a red tracer for battery voltage at the plug on the JB

white wire with a red tracer for battery voltage at the plug on the JB.
i see it go into the wire bundle that leads to the fuse box,
I THINK???.
but the problem is where it starts on the right hand side???
it is not connected to anything,
tip of connector is next to stator on right hand side of battery box/

COULD ANYONE TAKE A PICTURE OF THAT SIDE FOR ME,
please without the triangular plastic Vulcan covering



THANKS!!!

Not sure what you are asking....

But the white wire with the red stripe that's not connected to anything is an accessory lead. It's not supposed to be connected to anything unless YOU use for some kind of electrical accessory.

The White wire with red tracer is normally the main batt(+) feed from the battery to Pin 1 of the JB. It supplies power to the accessories sure, but it is also the feed for the main 30 amp fuse circuits. Basically, everything except the main starter motor feed. It's pretty critical. Maybe it has been replaced with a different wire on your ride ?

I suppose you could mean white wire with BLUE tracer ?

Well right now I am trying to figure out why there is no power to any lights when I turn the ignition,
Any way I can get a picture of where it originates from, I am not seeing any sort of evidence of where it might have once been coming from???

If the wire is White with a red stripe, it comes from the batt(+) terminal of the battery. It goes to pin 1 of the JB connector on the left side of the battery box. Sorry I don't have a pic right now. Won't have one until 7:00pm tonight if no one else does.

If this wire is not connected to the battery(+), it would definately cause "no lights".

From what I can See its power from the battery to the JB, Its for accessories like mentioned before and also operated the Fan Relay. Also comes out of the JB at Pin 2 (white wire) goes thru the ignition switch and back to the JB (brown/W wire) for the headlight fuse and the tail light fuse.

ok.. you need to move the blue wire from pin 8 (IRRC) to the empty pin slot 12 of the junction box to bypass the headlight relay.
