I bought some Oxford hot grips, I had them on my old 2004 DL650 and was very happy with them.
I started attempting the install on my 2012 DL650 today. I tried removing the tank to assist in looking for the wires, but couldn't work out how to remove all the fairing panels (see other thread).
So I started looking around the head stem area inside the fairing using a torch and a mirror. I found what I think is the heated grip plug. It looks like the same colour wires as used for the heated grip plug on the previous models.
The connector is different. It's a proper waterproof plug. It comes with a dummy plug install in it to keep it clean.
My fingers are holding the plug here, so you can see where approximately the plug is located;
This is the view from inside the head stem area looking up to the plug. You can see it was taped to the rest of the harness, the unwound tape is still hanging there in the photo;
And this is the dummy plug that is attached to keep the connector clean.
So my next task is to see if I can find a plug the same size as this dummy plug to use for connecting my oxford hot grips to the stock harness. Otherwise I will just resort to cutting the stock plug off.
