Default 2005 sportster wiring diagram anyone ?

hooking up heated grips ..new oem harley diagram is for older sportys ..
there are two unused electrical plugs on my 2005 harley what are they ..accesory or diagnostics ?
i can hook the neg to the frame and teh positve to teh battery .. buttheer is a second positive going through a relay that should go to a hot wire that is only hot with ignition key turned on .. really just need to find a good point to splice into such a wire without hacking up and poking holes into my loom looking for it with my electriical light tester .. any help appreciated

Looking at the factory wiring diagram, the accessory wire is orange with a white tracer. It runs from the accessory fuse to various points of the bike.

Electrically heated gear (grips or clothing), should be wired back to the battery with its own separate fuse. Heated equipment can draw more amps than your existing fused circuits have to spare.

Clothing isn't a big problem since you have to "unplug" from the bike when you get off, so there is no chance then of draining the battery if you forget to turn it off.

Power for heated grips should also go back to the battery, but the line (also fused) should be switched via a relay controlled by your ignition switch so if you forget to switch off the grip heat, it doesn't drain your battery.

yes .. I understand that .. I am hooking up the main wires to the battery .. or one to positive on battery .. neg to frame ( or battery ) and teh third wire WITH the relay that will allow the grips to have power only when bike is on.. that one will go to a wire on the bike that have power only when ignition is on ..
