Prewired for 12V outlet?

Sorry if this is already discussed, but the forum won't let me search using my phone. Does anyone know if our bikes are prewired for the 12V outlet?

There is a connector in the fairing if you want to spend a fortune to get the Suzuki badged accessory with a matching connector.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

Not that I'm aware of, you might have something for heated grips ( or I have my forums/bike mixed). You'll need to either connect directly to the battery but make sure you use a fuse. Or get an extra fuse box from Eastern Beaver,

There are threads covering this, go to

Thanks. So its some type of proprietary connector? Do you know if its wired direct or is it switched?

See https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650-20...p-install.html
It was first mis-identified as a heated grip connector which is actually O/G and B/W wired and behind the radiator. The accessory connector is wired O and B/W and is in the fairing. Both are switched.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

I put a 12V cig lighter style in the right side fairing and used the connector which is right underneath there. I got the harness from Eastern Beaver look here

Suzuki VStrom Electrics

Look for, VStrom Accessory Adapter (2011 On).

The one behind the radiator i plan on using for heated grips. They have a harness for that too. Get both at the same time and save thousands $$$ on shipping.

Like Greywolf said they are both switched

The thousands on shipping is a software workaround to insure people exceed the minimum order amount. Nobody is expected to pay it, just to order at least the minimum.

Do you know where the fuse is located for the OEM aux plug?

It runs off the ignition fuse. https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650-20...-location.html
It can only handle a light load, like a GPS or phone charger.

I'm sorry, I know it's a stupid question, but what do you mean by the ignition fuse? I ran my Motopump off of this connection (OEM Suzuki 12v outlet) and it stopped after a short moment.

When you say the ignition fuse, I would imagine that I would not be able to start my bike, assuming I blew the fuse in trying to run the pump. I suppose that's not the case and I just don't understand what you're saying.

Could you please elaborate or give me a better idea of what I should be searching for? I'm not opposed to doing my own research, but I don't really know what I should be looking for aside from a complete wiring schematic.

Thanks very much for any help/guiding you can provide.

*edit* I was planning on adding another 12v outlet. Perhaps this is some good motivation to get it done and utilize my fuseblock instead of the factory connection.
