450 winch wiring???

Hello all from a 4 wheelen newbie,
I have a 2011 450 EPS. I'm trying to put on a 3000lb KFI winch. I ran the wires and need to splice a red wire into an ignition controlled (keyed) power source. Which wire do I use? (color would be helpful) The red wire is about half the length of the rest of the wires and goes about half way to the battery. Is it spliced right by the ignition switch or farther back. All the wiring on the 450 is pretty well sealed up and I don't want to bear any wires unnesesarily. Thanks.

On my 07-450 I took the nut off the ignition pulled the plastic off cut a slit in the black wrap and found the solid red wire and cut away about a 1/4" of the wrap to expose the copper, about 2" down , wrapped the exposed red wire from handlebar connection to the 1/4" exposed from ignition red and wrapped it in electrition tape, then wrapped the black wrap that was cut to expose al of the wires in the ignition with electrition tape.

Most of us run it off the accessory socket wire. I don't know what the color is at the moment. Just test it with a volt meter with the switch ON/Off. It is recommended to be switched, but it doesn't have to be. Just in case there is some small children around that like to touch things.

It NEEDS to be hooked up to a wire that is hot ONLY when the key is turned on. It will drain your battery otherwise. One of the accessory wires is BEST. I don't remember the color either- TEST. If you hook the winch up to a always hot wire on the 550/700 your winch will drain the battery and you will get the big flashing E on the pod- $350 right out of your pocket.

Just finished up. I went with the brown wire off of the ignition switch and it seems to work just as it is supposed to. Thanks for the info.

On my 08 660 the red was positive to ignition and brown was positive out of ignition. So you should be in good shape
