I don't know if I am misreading this but I have fitted the OEM Kawasaki fog light kit with switch and harness (part number 99994-0487) straight into the connector designed for them under the front fairing. I have done this on both my 2016 and 2017 MK2's.

I have them on all the time and have never had any issues whatsoever. I also run Oxford heated grips through the left side connector you have pictured, and my sat nav and a 2nd auxiliary socket though a healtech thunderbox. I regularly have everything on and never blown a fuse or any issues at all ?

Thank you markymark11!

Although the images say the maximum total per accessory, I think it is the sum total of all

1.3A + 3.3A = 4.6A = 56w which is the maximum total load.



+



=




Viewing the diagrams



the wiring of the original fog lights on the motorcycle is connected to the accessory socket and to the accessory relay and a cable comes out of the relay to a 7.5A fuse



Everything matches the owner's manual

Thank you IFRITxX! This was BIG help to me!

You are welcome Vadim¡¡

It's my conclusion,

I was in the same situation as you, I have OEM wiring and switch but with aftermarket fog lights and I didn't understand how it was possible that consumption was so little, until I understood the wiring diagram. I think kawasaki indicates that consumption, because it is the one that uses OEM fog, leaving the rest for the accessories up to the total 4.6A and 56w.

I have been thinking all days about this idea and I think it is really good. I think it's easier, reliable and clean plug and play, than having to cut wires and connect it to the accessory connector.

all you have to keep in mind is the voltage you have left for the accessory socket...

Try it and tell us, by the way, I think we talked on Facebook :152:

Yes we did  :152:

I am waiting for Kawi OEM cables to arrive tomorrow, but still need to order some DOT approved yellow fog lights or DRL.

Thanks for all the help!

I already installed it and everything works without problems. It has been really easy having the OEM switch and wiring.

 :001: Received Kawasaki OEM Fog lights cables & Switch today!

Is there a way to attach 3rd party fog light cables to OEM connectors? I do not want to cut off the OEM connectors and then join fog light cables to OEM cables.

Vadim, you have two options:

Either cut OEM connectors or cut fog light connectors ...

You can look for the type of connector it is and put them in the fog lights ..

On the fog lights wiring you must put two Sumitomo connectors  MT090-2 male (part no. 6187-2311).
