heated shield, plugin on sled?

this is a new one for me...I dont remember headed sheilds the last time i owned a sled about 7 years ago.

So what exactly does it take to plug one of those deals into your sled? are there different types of sleds that can take the plug. I'm really in the dark on this one...

Is there a spot on my cats? or is there something special i need to do?

It looks like an RCA connector for earphones but instead of sound its power going to it. If you dont already have one you need to buy a kit to wire it in to the sled. Its pretty simple the hardest part is probly just routing the wire corectly.

It all depends on what type of helmet you have. Arctic cat helmets use a wiring kit that can just plug into the accessory plug in the wiring harness of your sled. Other helmet manufacturers sell a wiring kit with their shields. Like paintballdude said, check to see if the sleds have the hookup first (looks like RCA connector), but if not they are easy enough to wire in. If you can find the accesory plug in the wiring harness, you can get the correct type of plug from an auto parts store or hardware so you don't actually have to piggy back off of other wires. The first sled I put one on I tapped into the handwarmer power and it actually decreased the power to both my shield and the handwarmer. Neither worked very well.

from what i can tell i dont have one. the only hole i could find on the dash area is the keyhole. that being said, i'm not really sure where to look unless its hidden under the handlebar base cover.

I may just stop thinking about these kinds of things. I thought it would be nice for my 3 year old seeing his helmet fogged up after 15 minutes last night...

Under the hood near the steering post should be a two prong (half male /half female) yellow and brown accessory plug. The heated shield kit has everything you need.The RCA jack wire (both sides male)is for the helmet.There is an Adapter wire (one side is 2 prong /other side is Female) RCA connector to hook to the sled.No splicing needed.
For my adapter i just loosened up my dash and slid it under neath it.It hangs out about 2 inches but doesn't hurt anything.
