k12rs alarm wires 50 volt
Hi guys, I have a question about voltage that doesn't seem right. My dealer as good as they are haven't been too helpful on this one.
Here's the scenario: 03 K12RS. On the left side of the bike towards the back is a 4 prong flat connector. Everyone says it is factory installed for optional alarm hook-up.
Brown is ground, the red/white wire is permanently ON 12v. All OK
The two blue wires with different colored stripes only have power when the bike is on. Sounds like a great power source. However everytime I measure voltage at these two wires I get between 43 - 50 volts. What's the deal? I can't really hook up to these at that kind of voltage right? What am I missing?
I have a multi tester - always 1 lead to ground and 1 lead to one of the blue wires to measure.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was hoping to tap this source to power my Centech. I don't want to use the red/white since it always has power.
