to hook up to the grip heater accessory plug? I would like to use it, but don't wish to wait for the Eastern Beaver part
(I guess I could stick some tinned wire in and tape it of I need- just need the + for relay trigger)

The part can be ordered for the dealer?
I wish there was an after market source, like radio shack, that had them too.

I got the part from the dealer for $9. Plus about 75 cents for some connectors.
Easy and convenient if that is the only electrical accessory you are planning on (as in my case).
I believe it is WIRE HORN LEAD part number 36852-06G00.

(what do you mean by 75 c for some connectors?)

The heated grip set I bought was from KTM, I think for ATVs.
It has the usual high-off-low postion switch.
I needed 3 blade type connectors (female side) plus the clear rubber boots to go to the back of the switch.
The kind of usual misc low voltage electrical stuff most folks have lying around.
Also used a multi-tester to confirm the hot lead after I plugged in the new horn lead.
Painless install.
Good luck!

ahhh- I got you now, thanks

I will be all set when I get the connector (local Suzuki dealrer has one),
I should probably have been patient and ordered from Eastern Beaver (despite the name being vaguely asian porn sounding- wonder what my NET snoops think when I log on there !)

Eastern- Jim Davis, the proprietor, is presently located in Japan.
Beaver- He's a Canadian ex-patriot.

The beaver attained official status as an emblem of Canada when an "act to provide for the recognition of the beaver (castor canadensis) as a symbol of the sovereignty of Canada" received royal assent on March 24, 1975.

Hey ...

I just noticed we are neighbors.
I'm in Hansville.
Not sure where on the OlyPen you are located, but I'd be glad to help with the install if you'd like.
With one person, it takes about 90 minutes. Two people should cut the time down to about 3 hours ... :thumbup:

As I expected (and a great little company)

I mentioned for humor, and I noted my ISP can track the websites I browse (and we are a small town ). I imagine he must get some hits from folks non-electrical component searches.

We have a town of Beaver , next to Sapho (sic), who wrote the story of the greek Island of Lesbos. Sometimes my mind wonders

Oly

I am near P.A.
Do you do any logging road riding?
It would be fun to work on the project with someone- but I usualy have sporadic times to do it
We should meet up some time though. (Hansville is a "left" at the Troll, Corner, heading from the bridge toward Kingston?)

Yes, go north at the Trolls, more or less till the road ends.
I sold my fire road DR650 and bought the DL650, so I haven't been on them yet with this bike, but have ridden most of the Olympic circuit published by the guy down in Shelton.
I'll shoot a note your way when I get a free day and the weather supports a ride.
Could meet at Hurricane Coffee in Sequim, as an idea.

that sound good. What guy in Shelton?

I know some back roads, but didn't hear about a book
The DL does fine on the gravel, and some trails (but it's not a DR !)

GripTwister Tours

The book is called Olympic Mountains Loop GPS Tour For Garmin Brand GPS Receivers.
It's published by GripTwister Dual Sport Adventure Motorcycle Tours and is a handy, wirebound book on waterproof paper.
Most important, it has a disk of routes that you load on your Garmin, a GPSMap 62ST in my case, and it gives you turn by turn directions, plus points of interest along the way.
The loop is about 700 miles and is broken down into 8 segments. Though you could pick it up anywhere, officially it starts and ends in Hoodsport. 90% of it is unpaved FS roads. 5% is pavement. 5% is singletrack trails.
There were defintely a few places where the DR650 and I were put to the test and I wouldn't dream of trying it on a DL. One in particular, where I went over the handlebars and broke my thumb, comes to mind...
But outside of those few places, most of it is DL650 friendly.
