list of oem accessories

So perhaps I am dense, but i recently put on the oem dl650 hand guards and while they help a lot, under 35 oF they are not cutting it, so i found out just by googleling that there are oem heated grips, and I wanted to compare those with aftermarket options, but where is this elusive list of OEM parts that are not in the normal "assemblies" that you buy replacement parts from?

I see that the current models on the suzuki site have them but what about older years? I'm on a 2011 dl650.

Avoid OEM heated grips. They are overpriced and underperforming compared to aftermarket grips. Type heated grips in a Google custom search box at the top or bottom of the page here to find many threads on the subject.

It does appear Suzuki only started including accessories in the parts list in 2012. It is hard to impossible to find individual parts for accessory kits before then.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Well that explains it, thanks for the info and I will surely go the aftermarket route then for the grips ! Crossing my fingers that the grips + guards solve my cold hands for the winter.

Heated gloves to a better job than heated grips. The nice thing about grips is you never leave them when there is an unexpected cold snap.

Ya I was interested in them always being on. So on the way are the touring model of the oxfords (v8) and I took your suggestion greywolf from another thread and ordered the horn cable. I'll post back any funkness with the install to help others. Am I missing anything? Lots of threads were quiet complete on the heated grip subject, was a huge help !

One of the reasons I was looking for the accessory list, that you confirmed doesn't exist was to see if there were any more fairing components that might block wind near your knee. Some small fins that are just 6 inches in front of your legs would be GREAT in the winter Anyone know of anything such as that?

This thread has drifted, either ways I got the heated grips on (looots of time filing the throttle tube down correctly. But they went on well. Currently I have it hooked to the battery until i have time to get the tank off to find that darned oem grips connector.

My question is sealing and bundling all the wire. I tried some heat shrink tubing around the 3 connectors of the grips, but they still have holes at the ends since they only shrink so much, am I supposed to seal that with something? I'm an electrical idiot.

Where to put the wire, doesn't look like a bundle would play well down in between the forks with the existing wire that moves freely. Not to mention on turning across the arm that holds the fairing. I thought maybe bundle and attach the bars as a safe way?

I wrapped all the connectors with this 3M self fusing rubber tape to seal out all dust and moisture to all my wiring modificatios & additions. I rapped 50% on each rotation. It seals as well as heat shrink and totally conforms to almost any shape. Just pull it really tight, do it neatly and take you time. I think I found it at Lowes or Hoedeport? Take a picture of with you. They won't know what you are talking about. It took me 2 trips to find it. I also put dielectric on all the connectors as a 2nd barrier to dust and moisture.

Might be too late for you now but you may have gotten the cheaper version of shrink tube. Good stuff is available that had sealer which you will see oozing out the ends when shrinking almost done. At this point yiu could get a tube of dielectric grease and squeeze it into the open areas or option 2 would be to coat with rtv silicone but that can be messy and a real pain if you ever need to do anything with those wires in the future.
