    So I bought a electric face shield for my helmet off Ebay... it was supposed to come with the wiring... it didn't. I contacted the dealership that ran the auction and they offered to just send me another shield and wiring. Which I thought was very cool.. But now I have this spare shield and I'd like to put together a wiring kit for it.. anyone know how to do this? Or maybe have just the wiring kit available? It's a electric shield for the zeus 508 helmet...

    Is it an RCA looking hook up on the shield? It should be I have never seen anything else, but you never know. All you have to do is get an RCA female end for the sled (radio shack should be able to help you out with that). I bought a wall mount RCA, took it off the plate that it came on and mounted right on the instrument cluster on my Cat.

    Then find your regulator on your sled, there should be two wires, perhaps 4 depending on your sled I don't know, just make sure you have a power (+) and a ground (-) that you are hooking into and make sure you hook into the correct side of the regulator. It will have wires coming from the engine (stator) and wires going out of the regulator to the sled. Tap into the tires going to the sled, it will be a regulated 12V coming from there and you will not have any problems with dimming lights when you have the shield on. There will be a ground and a power for the RCA, solder them to the wires from the regulator and you should be hooked up. Then just get a longer RCA to run from the helmet to the instrument cluster. When you need to use your shield, just plug it in for 12V. It should be easy, post back if you have anymore questions.

    ok.. the wiring kit came via UPS this morning.. so that was a nice surprise...

    here is the voltage regulator I have on the sled (95 polaris storm)
    [attachment=15579]

    I was curious if I could just splice into the hot wire on the key? Should I place a fuse on this as well?

    If you haven't noticed, this is the first time I've owned an electric shield....lol

    Just test that you have 12V and it should be ok. I've never seen a voltage regulator with only one wire hook up. Should be at least 1, or 2 coming into that. I'm stumped. I would just go to any 12V source after seeing that regulator.
