I'm not too sure without the diagram handy, but it might also feed the switched live accessory socket behind the headlamp. But if I remember that's typically used for heated grips.

In any case, that accessory switched-live needs the relay in to work - then both the rear socket the and front connector become live. Easy to do, those relays are cheap, just plug one in. The rear socket is slightly tricky to get to - it's at the back behind all the relays. I had to smash a bit of plastic to get mine out.

ok - I'll look into a relay.

I did try to find a switched live I'd read about on here behind the headlight but without knowing what I was looking for had no luck - it's not a nose cone job off is surely?

It is a nosecone-off job, but that's not such a big deal once you've removed the side panels and infill panels. Most of them secured with the same size Torx bolt, which a hand tool will undo. Do it in half an hour once you're used to it. Getting them all back may take a little longer.

It's a 3-pin socket behind the headlamp, but if you've got Triumph heated grips, it might be in use already. Depends if the wiring has been modified or not.

So, there's a socket at each end, each a pita to get at, then you need the missing relay to make them operational?  :156:

Or tap into the left hand sidelight wires which takes a couple of minutes  :015:

I initially had also tapped Into the side parking light, but then decided to go all the way back to the battery, for a more accurate reading, with quality gauge wires and inline fuse

My voltmeter is holed into the left side infill and fits perfectly

Umm, yeah, sounds about right.  :027:
