It is under the tank, just above and behind the radiator on the left side. Attaching a pic but it probably won't be very good. This is just below the tank, which has been removed in the pic. You can see the aux power (factory heated grip) connector in the left group of connectors peeking out from under the throttle cables running diagonally across. If you think you would ever want to connect up more than one thing, or anything that draws more than 2 or 3 amps, I would recommend installing one of the different power distribution fuse blocks available. Some have the relay built right in and make a quick, neat and safe method of connecting electrical accessories.Any pics showing the plug on a 2014 DL1000a would be appreciated
Yes, with the benefit that when the bike is off, the grips are off.If i buy the vstrom heated grip adapter from eastern beaver can i just plug that into heated grip port on the bike and then put some connectors on the other end and join them to the wires that come from the grips and would normally goto the battery terminals ?
As far as I know if I connect my Oxford grip heater to the OEM connector then it won't be powered when the ignition switch is off. That"s fine!
I would go a bit further with the following question: is there any circuit on my bike (DL100XT/L8) that powered only when the engine is running?
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!
