wiring plan look OK ?

In this diagram I am using the ground from the grip heater accessory plug behind the radiator for ground to: relay -, heat grips and HID.
Should I use a bigger guage wire and do a ground run to the battery for the HID instead?

I can't see the pic well enough but, from the description, I'd say that is more than I'd like the heated grip connector ground wire to handle.

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

so best home run ground for relay/HID and

and just use the grip plug + for the a switched source for the relay trigger/+ for heated grips sound OK ?

I have the bike apart, tank of Etc so easy to run wires- trying to keep it as compact as I can though

That's good. Just use the orange/green wire as a relay trigger wire.
