VStrom 650 2015 - heated grip connector

All,

I'd like to install the oxford grip heater to my VStrom.

I don't want to connect it directly to the battery because I am afraid I can forget the heater on after my riding. As I result I'll get a dead battery.

For this reason, I'd like to use the grip heater connector which should be already available. I am trying to identify its position and its model.

Is the heater connecter the one in the picture? This connector is behind the radiator on the left side.

Do you know its model? I prefer to buy a right plug instead of cutting the wires?

Thanks in advance for your help

Ciao,
Rosario

That is the ambient air temperature thermometer. The heated grip connector is behind the radiator top shroud.

Looks like a good place to ask:

I'm rehabbing an '05 Wee and need to make a proper job of connecting the Oxfords, since I think the previous owner made something simple complicated.

I've had an '04, '07 and '12 before and hooked up heated grips. But since it's been several years, especially the '04, I'm not certain where the h/g connector is. I recall it being stuffed up behind the radiator, but I'm not sure. Getting old I guess.

Is this correct?

Thanks. I'm glad to have a reason to be back on the forum after 5 or 6 years on other bikes.

They are all pretty much in the same place behind the radiator top shroud.

I'm hopeful all those early mods come back to me when I get into it. Kind of nice to walk old ground again.

Thanks for the reply.

The Oxford heated grips can be hooked up direct as the controller senses battery voltage and will turn itself off when it is not charging.

Blame on me I mixed up the temperature sensor for a connector.

The one in attach should be the right one. Correct?

Yep that looks like it, but you will have to cut the plug off unless you have a mate to it and a pig tail. Eastern Beaver sells one:
VStrom

page down to the heated grip adapter. While you are at it, order the headlight relay harness(if it's not already on the bike) since the oem set up fails quite often.

That's the one. You can also get a connector that fits from Suzuki as it takes the same connector that's used for the horn. The part number is 36852-06G00.
