Accessory Lighting Circut

I bought some LED fog/running lights. I see an accessory plug in the light bucket. Any body know what fuse that goes to?

These are low wattage led bulbs. They don't draw much current. I'd rather not run a new wire from battery if I don't have to. Will I blow a fuse if I connect these lights to the accessory plug?

I don't want to find out the hard way on a dark winding road.

In the service manual wiring diagram it doesn't even show the accessory plug. Must go to headlight circuit? Has anyone tried connecting lighting to this?

Ok, I have determined the accessory plug goes to headlight circuit. One lead is on low beam the the other is high beam. I went ahead and wired the fog lights to this. Later before I do a night time ride I will check amp draw on the head light circuit. I'm guessing it was meant for auxiliary lighting so a couple of LEDs should be ok. Hopefully

Strange it doesn't show on wiring diagram. Maybe it does and I'm just blind.

This one has two leads one for high one for low. I just put it on the low beam lead.
