Can I add a question to this subject please? In reference to the red connector that’s bundled with the white 3 pin connector, did the bikes come with a pigtail to plug into the connector to power up an accessory? What accessories are normally utilized in that position?

Sure my bike did not come with an auxiliary line off the radio that is normally found in the left glove box, so I ordered one and I was looking weird to plug it in and as per the last post you can see when you take out the left glove box there’s a rubber boot, according to the gentleman on this chat in that boot is a red and a white connector. It would be the white connector so that you can stream music from other devices

Are you asking what did the red connector power? Sorry, John, I'm not sure......

No pigtail provided - places like Electrical Connections and others will sell you the mate to that connector, though the circuit is only fused for 3A

EDIT: Things like external GPS', radar detectors, MP3 players, Bluetooth adapters, etc. could be powered from that connector.

Honda used to supply the audio interface cable, not the power cable. I don't know exactly when they stopped supplying the audio cable, but my 2012 audio/comfort did not come with one. I understood they only gave that cable with the higher end models.

The red connector is an Accessory connector for power. It is hot when the key is on. I use it to power my Freewire to bluetooth the audio to my helmet. On my 2005 there is a look-a-like connector under the right side box that was for power to heated grips. I use that one to power my voltmeter and accessory plug with USB to charge my phone, etc.
