'18+ Heated Grip Adaptor..?

Looking to install heated grips. On my '15 650 I used an Eastern Beaver adaptor cable to plug into an OEM circuit specifically for heated grips.

Does the same apply to the '18 DL1000?

Yes I believe it does. I use the Oxford heated grips and they shut off when the battery reaches a certain level. They plug right into the battery, works really well.

Did you plug them directly into the battery or use the OEM HG circuit/plug?

I just installed the Oxford Heaterz on my new to me 2014 DL1000, and went right to the battery with the terminals. I tested the auto off feature in the garage, works fine. General consensus here is that works well, and has not failed or left anyone stranded with a dead battery.
On my 2012 DL650, I wired the grips to the accessory plug behind the radiator with an Eastern Beaver connection, but they didn't have the auto off feature.

To the op - I just used an EB adaptor to power my GPS with the factory heated grip connector. It was hard to find, if you have the tank off you can see it from above @ 11 oclock inside the frame behind the radiator. You can fish it out without removing anything, just barely from the left bottom, as it is heavily taped. Test with a meter to identify the 12v side after you plug in the adapter.

If you have trouble picking up a switched power supply to operate a relay or a EB power supply the horn is a easy place to get it.

Just a piggyback terminal on the power side of the horn.

The horn operates by having switched positive power to one side and the button gives it the earth required to make noise.

The newer Oxfords actually recognise when the engine is not running and shut down on a timer rather than when voltage drops.
After a few minutes they go into standby then shut down a few minutes later.
This allows short stops such as for fuel without having to reset them.

It is the voltage drop that tells the controller the bike has stopped, then the timer takes over.
