Do you know what connector is needed for the heated grip connector? I'm assuming it is not the aux one I mentioned in my previous post!

Uh, the one in post #2 showing the heated grip connector. Use that connector for your heated grips.

You can buy a pigtail already made up from eastern beaver for the Heated grip connector or the aux connector. Easter beaver has a $20 min order.

Heated grip pigtail
Aux pigtail (he calls it Accesory Adapter)

Just bought & installed the same shelf, but w/o the voltmeter. Where did you plug in the sockets? One to the aux plug & other to the heated grip plug? I've found both thanks to your helpful pix in this thread.

I saw in another post that the heated grip plug is only hot when the ignition is on. How about the aux plug?

I used the aux plug for everything on my shelf. I just put two wires in each crimp terminal to run to the next item until I reached the last item to wire up which I just put one wire in that terminal.

There isn't a separate part. However, there are two sources that will fit. A Suzuki horn lead will plug into the heated grips connector. Part number 36852-06G00

Also An Eastern Beaver VStrom heated grip adapter from VStrom will plug right in to the OEM connector. There is a $20 minimum order there though.

Do you really need the headlight relay? surely Suzuki didn't leave something serious out on the '12 because of a few $.

Do you feel lucky? The new bikes still don't have headlight relays.

Well that sux.

So I guess in my case I would need;

H4 Dual Headlight Relay Kit FUSEHOLDER BATTERY CONNECT<-- I guess due to warranty, this would be the best solution for me, don't really want to hard wire it so it can be removed if needed.

Yet on the EB site it says: The factory heated grip connector is not the best place to supply power to heated grips.
