Accessory plug help!!!!

I know I know......this isn't a Goldwing. Nonetheless, was hoping someone could figure this out. Tried to use the accessory plug to charge my phone. Plug doesn't work...
Maybe photos will help.
1 and 2 is the plug from MotorcycleLarrys
3 is the wire harness attached to the battery.
4. Is what I think is the wire from the accessory plug. The wire nuts are from when I tried to attach the wire to the battery wire harness. Once it was attached, the plug still does not charge.
Any and all help is appreciated

If I had wired it directly to the Battery there would be a fuse in the lead someplace

I agree Ron. Maybe the 2 wires I tried to connect to battery weren't from the plug. I was hoping to avoid taking the fairing off to check that wiring, but I may not have a choice.

Is there a fuse box on the bike some place. It might be fuse through there. Check and see if there is an accessory fuse.

Look at picture #3. The + (12v) wire is the red and is shielded. The ground is the black wire and exposed. Agreed? Now Battery Tender has those same connectors. And here is the catch. To connect to a battery with their pig tail, they have to reverse the wire polarity when joining the two connectors together. So that Red (+12v) is the shielded portion on one connector and its the un-shielded part on the mating connector. That keeps Red to Red and ground to ground. The sides of the plug recepticle pic 1 is ground and the center portion at the bottom is the + connection. Make sure that the center portion is connected to +12v and the side is connected to Gnd. You probably know all this anyway so this may be redundant. Isaac

You are right Isaac, wire ain't just wires, it make a big difference where you have them connected

need to get a multimeter and check to see if the wires you have actually go to the connector plug. If not then we are just guessing, if they are there may be an issue with the plug itself. Hard to say with out digging into it myself, so feel free to bring it over this weekend and I will get you up and working in short order.
