Default winch wiring question

So i just finished installing my new winch. Everything seems to work fine, except for the fact that the winch will run whether they key is turned on or not. When i was wiring it up that was the only part that was not that clear in the diagram was the connection to the keyed ignition. There was 2 small red wires, one from handlebar switch, and one from corded remote switch that it said to splice to power keyed ignition. There was 2 wires coming from the key a red one and a grey one with a blue stripe. I spliced them both to the red wire. I'm guessing that was not the correct one, however before i dig into it again, just curious if anyone knows exactly what i need to do here.Thanks

If you pull front cover off the front fuse panel access, there is a cluster of wires with a connector on the end not connected to anything. From what I recall there is a brown with white stripe. I attached my winch contact wire to one of these wires. You'll just need to take a test light and probe for a wire that lights up when the key is on.

The white wire w/ black stripe, coming off of your ignition switch will work as well.

I used the lead from the aux plug, not sure what color it was. As TheGriz said,use a test light to find a lead that is only powered when the key is on.

I know this may sound trivial but I wired my winch to work
with the key off on purpose.

Let's say for some really stupid reason you loose you key and can't get you bike started;
you can still winch it up on a trailer - IF you needed too.

The only reason the winch would need to be wired to a keyed triigger is if someone (Kids let's say)
had access to your bike and could play around with it while you were not around.
That was not a factor in my case, so my winch is workable all the time.

Just thought I'd mention it......................
