switched aux electrical connector

I've found some reference to the aux electrical connector behind the radiator, and am still confused, can someone point me to a source for the part ? Eastern Beaver part number, or somewhere else .. thanks. I installed Oxford heated grips to the battery terminals yesterday, but would prefer to put them on a switched lead,
thanks

If you use an auxiliary fuse block you have more options if/when you add more things. One like these allows constant or switched power depending on how you hook things up.

Here is the Eastern Beaver link:

https://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/B...om/vstrom.html

It's the "aux power adapter" at the bottom of the page. I know it fits because I've used it for my 2014 1000.

Ah, thank you all.
I tested the auto shutoff, and it worked, but a switched circuit would be preferred.

Eastern Beaver kits are plug and play. I've used them on 3 Stroms​, one Gladius, and now on my wife's second Triumph Tiger (not quite plug and play but still fairly simple.)

My Oxford grips have been tied the battery for many years now. No issues.

I don't think I have ever heard/read of the motion detecting shut off system not working either.

Oxford recommend their grips be hooked directly to the battery.

I have always set mine up that way and they have never given me or my bike any trouble but I do understand some may like them on a switched system.
