The aux connector doesn't supply enough power for heated grips. You'll blow the ignition fuse. Use the heated grip connector. Don't ground to the frame. It can cause corrosion with a combined steel and aluminum frame. Check the wiring diagram with the grips. The blue and white wires go to the switch. The red wire goes to the heated grip connector negative (black/white on the bike). The hot wire to the switch goes to the heated grip connector positive. (orange/green on the bike).
Do you know what connector is needed for the heated grip connector? I'm assuming it is not the aux one I mentioned in my previous post! :headbang:

Uh, the one in post #2 showing the heated grip connector. Use that connector for your heated grips.

You can buy a pigtail already made up from eastern beaver for the Heated grip connector or the aux connector. Easter beaver has a $20 min order.

Just bought & installed the same shelf, but w/o the voltmeter. Where did you plug in the sockets? One to the aux plug & other to the heated grip plug? I've found both thanks to your helpful pix in this thread.

I saw in another post that the heated grip plug is only hot when the ignition is on. How about the aux plug?

I used the aux plug for everything on my shelf. I just put two wires in each crimp terminal to run to the next item until I reached the last item to wire up which I just put one wire in that terminal.

There isn't a separate part. However, there are two sources that will fit. A Suzuki horn lead will plug into the heated grips connector. Part number 36852-06G00

Also An Eastern Beaver VStrom heated grip adapter from VStrom will plug right in to the OEM connector. There is a $20 minimum order there though.

Do you really need the headlight relay? surely Suzuki didn't leave something serious out on the '12 because of a few $.

Do you feel lucky? The new bikes still don't have headlight relays.
Well that sux.

So I guess in my case I would need;

H4 Dual Headlight Relay Kit FUSEHOLDER BATTERY CONNECT<-- I guess due to warranty, this would be the best solution for me, don't really want to hard wire it so it can be removed if needed.

VStrom Factory Heated Grip to Fuse Panel Adapter

The aux connector is basically for a GPS or phone charger. It's light duty. The heated grip connector is probably good for 40W or so.
The aux connector doesn't supply enough power for heated grips. You'll blow the ignition fuse. Use the heated grip connector. Don't ground to the frame. It can cause corrosion with a combined steel and aluminum frame. Check the wiring diagram with the grips. The blue and white wires go to the switch. The red wire goes to the heated grip connector negative (black/white on the bike). The hot wire to the switch goes to the heated grip connector positive. (orange/green on the bike).
Yet on the EB site it says: The factory heated grip connector is not the best place to supply power to heated grips.

If the bike is equipped with a fuse block, that would be better. It will probably provide slightly more power and won't kill the blinkers and brake light if the grips short out and blow a fuse. Those who don't want to add more electrical stuff and just want a clean installation will be probably be fine with the OEM connector though. I don't see a need for three low power devices on the accessory adapter but somebody might.

Well I already wired a cig lighter socket/usb unit to the battery so the AUX connection is a bonus.

Do you think the H4 relay option I chose would be fine for my needs while on warranty(and no cutting of wires)?

As you point out this doesn't modify the factory wiring so it can be removed if desired. Would only be an issue with warranty if the relay kit caused a problem on the bike. Warranty can not be void legally just due to aftermarket parts used, they have to cause the problem.
EDIT: Didn't notice you weren't in the U.S. this is law in the U.S. and may be different in your location.

This is for using the factory heated grips and connecting the grips to a fuse panel added by you. Based on your desire to remove the headlight relay kit it doesn't sound like you have an extra fuse panel installed on your bike so I don't think you want this. You're probablly looking for this 36” (91 cm) VStrom Heated Grip Adaptor

Note this is just the pins and seals to use the dummy plug that is installed in the aux connector. Not a connector built up with wires

Oops yeah I mean I just need the adapter, or just the plug as I only need to attach the plug to the wiring which will come with the heated grips and not need the pre-made setup.

Perfect, if I can just use the dummy plug then I don't mind using my existing wire I have laying around.

Aux connector in the tail

I just bought a set of Hyper-Lites for my 2013. I lifted the seat and started poking around in the taillight wiring. That's when I discovered an unused plug. It's a six wire plug but only four wires go into the plug. Anyone know what this plug is for, and what the four wires are?

Thanks -

If you can get the AUX plug/connections&Seal on it's own, why can't you get the VStrom Heated Grip Adaptor plug on it's own? or am I blind?
Also if he recommends the Posi-Lock Connectors or Soldering solution then why not sell the H4 Relay Kit with the couplers?

I guess you're blind. VStrom

The the power leads for the relay kit connect to the battery or a fuse panel, not bike wiring. Posi Locks are not appropriate. The only connection to the bike wiring is the coupler that connects to one of the stock headlight connectors.

No, you need to re-read my post.

I want the plug only and not the attached wiring, why would I need the wires if the wires already come with the heated grips? I just want the compatible end plug which connects to the loom.

The way I read it was that you cut off the stock couplers so you don't have 2 dangling away hence the reason why you would need the posi locks or soldering option.

So you want the plug without the wires? I didn't get that from the plug alone statement. Wire to wire connections are more common. The connector is the 2PO90, the top one at 090 Connectors

You can cut off the stock connectors but most people just use the male coupler in the kit and tape off the unused female connector. That allows using the stock wiring if selling the bike or in case a problem occurs. If you want to cut and connect, you could order Posi Locks.
