2011 Wiring Harness Plugs, What Manufacture

Shopping at the local automotive parts store I see there are several wiring harness plugs available. What brand of wiring harness plugs does Suzuki use in their wiring harness? I would like to tap into the bike wiring harness, but I want to do it through plugs and not splice into the factory wires. I know I can get wiring harness from far away, but I think the cost plus shipping is pretty high and all I need are the correct plugs.

You might want to check with the guy who makes the Eastern Beaver products. Not only is he in Japan where Suzuki undoubtedly sources their plugs, but he uses a few of them in his products so he must know the suppliers.

Yep, Eastern Beaver is the only source I know of. Suzuki used a variety of suppliers, so you have to match up what you have. Not all connectors are available.

For example:

EB has a minimum order amount of $20 -- if you don't have that much in your cart, the shipping cost will show as $99. His normal shipping costs are very reasonable - between $5 and $10 in my experience.

Suzuki dealers can also obtain individual connectors and components, but I don't know where to get a list of the numbers to order -- they aren't listed on the normal fiches. Maybe you could get chummy with your local parts monkey.

Bear in mind that many OEM Suzuki connectors are unsealed, undersized shite. There are situations where you might want to upgrade to something better -- many Napa stores carry Weather Pak connectors and terminals, and you can, of course, order them online from various sources.
For example: Packard Delphi Terminals, Tools, Housings, Cavity Plugs & Seals

You could waste a bunch of time and energy running down the proper connectors; or, you could just order the correct plug and play components from Mr. Davis @ Eastern Beaver. Well thought out quality stuff. Shipping costs aren't that much, and he is usually prompt in shipping your order. Just keep your order price over 20 bucks.
