Hello,

I'm looking to install heated grips but connect. to an ignition-only wire, and not connected directly to the battery.



I've found great instructions on doing so online for the MT07 but the under-the-seat wiring for the XSR is very different, and I was wondering if anyone knew which wire was which before I removed more of the tail section to trace it out?



On a related note: What is the connector tucked away between the fuse boxes and battery?


(EDIT=I don't have enough posts yet to attach the link, but I do have the photo)

As John A says do not mess with that plug aux plug is taped to loom at side a behind rectifier.
Proper plug in is on eBay for about 3 quid...
Easy job do it right.

In the prospect of being complete, my electrical add-ons to this bike will eventually include:


a) heated grips


b) a Soundbomb horn


c) a pair of Denali 2.0 DM lights



d) possibly a charger for a USB or a GPS


Which is why I didn't immediately jump on the notion of adding the grips to the Auxiliary plug.


That and my Oxford grips came with just a toggle switch which looks really finicky, so I really don't want to wire this directly to the battery.

My work is done. Heated grips installed with a relay, using the tail light wiring as the switch.



The first photo identifies the tail light wiring -- thanks to the sketches provided by Major_Tom


I used a Posi-Tap to splice into that blue/red wire and connected that to #30 on a 4-way relay.



As you can see from the second photo there is not a lot of space under the seat and my wiring is somewhat long.



I ended up tucking the relay on the right, next to one of the fuse boxes, and coiling the wires in a tidy pile.


With everything functional I will securely attach the relay and the wires out of the way underneath the various plates.
