The connector is behind the radiator.

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

I put the OEM heaters on mine recently. It was quite a bit of PITA just to ultimately shove some connectors together.

IIRC, the instructions start with "remove cowlings," and end with pivoting the radiator before you actually start plugging stuff in.

I read a few posts here about it at the time: some people even had to pull the fuel tank and airbox to find it, and it may or may not be taped up to a bundle of wires.

I removed the tank and the air filter cover and that provided room to reach down in the gap in front of the air box and plug the Eastern Beaver harness connector into the factory option plug. It's an easy route in. Do it when the tank is near empty.

PM me and I will email you the OEM grip instructions. The sketches are reasonably easy to follow.
