I don't want to expose my battery to needless load (grip heater, fog light) when there is no power supplied from the generator... I would like to turn them off immediately after engine shutdown.

Thanks a lot!
Jengo,

I think the PC-8 fuse panel from Eastern Beaver is what you are looking for. It is a cleaner install for all your accessories and provides switched and un-switched circuits.

Thanks eff!

I will check the rear break light switch cable! It seems there's the trick

EasternBeaver: "The rear brake light switch connector’s hot lead is hot whenever the bike is turned on. It is a perfect place to tap a small current for switching your fusebox or any other accessory."

I haven't had time to check the cable itself just thought it over again: if the rear break light switch would receive power only if the engine is running then I couldn't have a chance to check the rear brake light switch operation without starting the enginie which is not logical... I have to be able do the check it any time, it shall not depend on the engine status. So in Eastern beaver's sentence the "turned on" probably mean that the ignition key turned on, the motorbike electronics receive power from the battery.

What do you think?

It seems I'm still looking for a solution...

Looking on the pics to me it looks like the aux connector is at the right hand side of the bike as you are sat on it. Looking on my 2015 model i am sure its down the left hand side as you sit on the bike. Am i correct with this?

For people looking for the AUX connector on mainland EU, I found this shop in Italy


errebishop.com/en/automotive-connectors-/7132-kit-connector-mt-sealed-male-female-2-way-type-al


Delivery seems pretty fast (to Germany), 2-3 days. And I'll post about installing this on a 2019 650 XT, hopefully it's the same part in about the same place

Ok, so it is the same on a 2019 XT 650. I had the GPS cable connected with the appropriate sumimoto connector and the accessory connector on the bike was above the radiator, on the left side of the motorcycle (as one would sit on it). I can't give more details, like color of the wires and such, because the setup was done by a mechanic at the dealership. But he confirmed the existence of the heated grips connector also.

Question 2017 650 xt

I have a 2017 VStrom 650XT and I am looking for the Aux connector to hook up my GPS. I went to Eastern Beaver and ordered the Aux Power Adapter.

Easter Beaver says for the 2017, "Accessory power adapter plugs into the connector taped to the wiring harness on the left side. Note, the connector used is the same as the earlier one but the other gender, and wire polarity is reversed. The bike comes with a connector housing with plugs in it as a cap."

I think I found it behind the radiator on the left side but was hoping someone who had a clue what they were looking at could confirm... is this the Aux connector? Wires are only going into one side.

That's it. The connector is capped. Take the cap off, and I assume the Eastern Beaver adapter will plug right in.
