I might have to update my wiring the next time I take the plastics off and tap into that connector instead.  In the unlikely event the wiring gets shorted, I'd rather lose the heated grip fuse than the tail/brake fuse!

Looks like you could order the Kaw harness and switch separate, Then just have to find 2 connectors or splice the 2 wires at each light.

Pretty sure the connector you need which sweatmachine is referring to - to attach straight into the heated grips connector shown - is a Sumitomo HM090 2 pin male connector, you can buy them on Ebay or Aliexpress or similar sites for a coupe of quid  :002:

I used this connector for my sat nav as it's a switched live, and ran my Oxford heated grips straight to the battery as they turn themselves off when idle, but yes you could use it for a variety of accessories. It is much easier than slicing into something else for switched power IMO. This then leaves the 2 bullet connectors under the clocks for other accessories.
