12v Wire for Accs near gas tank

I have heard it exists and is used by some to power gps units, phones, heated grips, ect. Do you guys use that wire for such things or go to the battery for juice and run wires/connections?

If it is there, how do I locate it, identify it, and wire from it?

Thanks, Mike

The OEM heated grip connector is behind the radiator. It has a black/white ground and an orange/green ignition on hot wire lead. A Suzuki horn lead, part number 36852-06G00 will plug right in. http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Bi...om/vstrom.html also has lots of goodies including a connector that will fit. For multiple accessories, A fuse block as discussed at https://www.stromtrooper.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=31700 is the way to go.

There are also three power sources elsewhere on the bike. The first one I found is taped backwards to the main wire bundle, behind the radiator. I found it when I was looking for the heated grip connector. It is a white connector with a black cap on it.

There is a second one behind the fairing somewhere up near the headlight nacelles, also a white connector with a black cap. The third is somewhere near the rear of the bike - haven't found it yet.

The connectors are switched and fused. You'll find them in the wiring diagram.

Is there any chance the wire behind the radiator can be accessed without removing the tank and plastic?

Yes, unbolt the radiator and push it forward. It can be done, not easy but it's possible (I did it).

I got to mine by removing the black plastic boomerang shaped piece under the left side of the fuel tank. The connector could be anywhere in back of the radiator so there are no guarantees of ease. Very long needle nose pliers can help a lot.

Thanks! I've hooked up my hyperlites and installed my Givi's, so I think I'll call it quits for the night. I'll try to locate the wire tomorrow.

Got the heated grips installed! I unbolted the radiator and moved it forward, the pigtail dropped down, and I plugged it into my HGA from Eastern Beaver. I haven't decided where to mount the switch yet, so I have it zip-tied to the handlebar for the time being. Thanks again for your help!
