Socket location for heated grips.
« on: December 31, 2017, 03:40:38 PM »
Hi guys, just fitted the Koso Apollo heated grips, rather than wire them directly to the battery,  I noticed a fuse under the seat for "grip heaters". I presume this is for the kawasaki heated grips and there will be socket already somewhere under the fairing that I can plug them into. It's a gt model so I don't want to use the supply to the 12 volt socket on the left side. Where is this socket located.
Thanks.

The connector is under the left fairing. It's a Sumitomo HM 090 sealed.

I put the Koso Apollo Heated Grips on my bike December 2016. I used posi-taps and tapped in under the seat using the brown wire with a yellow tracer and  the black wire with yellow tracer at the wires on the left side of the bike that you can see zipped tied under the black plastic wrap in the photo......https://flic.kr/p/JXhUEV  There are 2 Brown with Yellow Tracer wires i just grabbed the first one i came to and tapped into it and all worked well.

I don't get it.

You have a cable that just needs a positive and a ground and you run it right beside the battery (which has one of each) and then you cut open the brake light and an indicator wires to get power (even though neither circuit is rated for the load you want). Were you unaware of the fused connector that Kawasaki fitted to the bike explicitly to make it easier to fit heated grips?
You are powering heated grips

Didn't cut any wires...I used post-taps.....  to add the harness you see in the photo...Electrical by weljo2001, on Flickr      .Then i added my Heated Grips,GPS,Admore Light Bar and Admore TopCase Lights all through the harness.

Are you are running your heated grips from your brake light circuit?
If yes, why? Kawasaki provided a dedicated circuit for heated grips.

Im going to plug the grips into Kawasaki's socket under the left panel but I'm struggling to find a plug I can buy that's just the 2pin type.

I ran everything electrical through the harness in the above photo. So everything is in one spot under the seat.
