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.
To find the connector just google: "sumitomo hm 090 sealed 6187-2801".
But actually you need only two terminals and seals as the connector itself is already in place and is used as cap of the oem circuit (see the third picture on page 5 of the instructions).
I hope I've explained well.

 Thanks for that, you explained perfectly, it was the 4 wires that confused me. I'll get one ordered. Thanks again.

Didn't really need to buy a plug, Mr Kawasaki has left a blank plug in the socket for the heated grips under the left fairing panel. All I needed was the 2 pins to crimp onto the grip wires and simply plug it in. Took about 10min from start to finish.

Managed to get a couple of the correct pins for the wires so thank you to vespista . Saved me buying the complete plug.

Hmmm, I always thought the connectors for the heated grips were somewhere under the RIGHT fairing? Or are both the 12Volt connector wires and the heated grips connectors under the left fairing?

Not sure about the 12volt socket,mines the gt so it came already fitted, but the heated grips socket definitely is.

Thanks, thorough study of the PDF linked on the first page made it all clear. Somehow I always thought the heated grip wires were like the accessory wires, though on the other side. Now I know they're not.

I'll probably install the heated grips later this year, so any info is welcome. So thank you for your thread :-).

Did you remove all fairings (including the fuel tank ?!) as instructed in the linked PDF or did you find a short cut?

All I did was undo the 2 Allen screws on the long black frame panel. That gave enough room to get my hands behind. Also remove the small Allen screw on top of the coloured tank panel then pulled this panel off and the plug is on a bracket right in front of you. The socket actually has the plug , plugged into it as a blank to keep water / dirt out. The only actual bits you need are the 2 small terminals that need crimping onto the wires from the grips. Push the terminals into the plug , don't forget to put the wires through the little rubber waterproof seals , then simply plug it in.
Didn't have to touch the tank at all. Took less than 15 mins to wire it up once I'd routed the cables from the grips. I would say less than an hour from start to finish..

Thanks Floyd! I'll take a look soon, when the garage is just a little bit warmer... :43:. Installing the grips will be a nice project before the Spring arrives!

Hardest part is getting the grips on. I use loads of clutch/brake cleaner spray, or you can use compressed air if youve a suitable air gun. Make sure you get the grips in the correct position regarding the wires.
