Got my new Talon a couple of days ago. Not a fan of seatbelts most of the time, so I’m going to install the bypass in the wiring harness under the drivers seat. While I had the wiring harness exposed under the seat, I found a red wire plug unplugged under the back of the seat base. It’s just under the rubber cover that has to be removed to get to the seatbelt bypass plug. The other end that it will plug into is mounted to the frame, but doesn’t appear to go anywhere. Does anyone know what it is? Should it be plugged in or not?

My guess it would be an auxiliary plug for an add on? Btw I too hated wearing seat belts. Couple years ago I actually rolled my can am coming around a turn doing about 40 and was flung out of the cab and into a tree. Luckily I still wore my helmet at the time. Ended up with a minor concussion, broken collar bone and bruised ribs. I’d advise you keep the belt on unless you plan on going down a flat dirt road doing 15 mph. Not that my advice matters lol just giving my opinion. Stay safe out there

Diagnostic port is correct and the connection for the seatbelt is close by. The bypass adapter is about 25 bucks very easy bypass just make sure it is waterproof.

Here is a picture I used on a previous post you can see the red connector in the upper right hand corner. Take a look at the zip ties over the ecu ... also filled them with dioelectric grease -- helps keep water and moisture out very easy on a new machine.

Spot on I do not recommend driving without a seat belt and side by sides come with them. Upgraded versions are better my preference is D3 5 point from Simpson.

It is the diagnostic port, just leave it plugged into the dummy plug until you need to reset a code or tune.

As far as seatbelts, WEAR THEM!!! I flipped my R on the first outing and was damn glad I had my seatbelt on and I was only going about 15 mph.
