Extra Electrical Connectors

There are a few extra connectors on the bike. There are three under the seat. One looks like a serious power connector. The other three are on the left side of the bike next to the radiator.

Underseat connectors.



Connectors next to the radiator.



I haven't got a 2011 Maintenance Manual yet. Could someone identify them?

Take your VOM meter and check voltage. I'm sure they MUST be grounds, or else they'd be 'shielded', or else they'd cause a short when they touched some metal.

The cables next to the radiator are 2 earth's (black/yellow) and 5amp switched feed. It is linked to the relay plug (no relay fitted as standard) that should be next to these cables. The fuse is the awkward one under the seat. You will need to get a relay if you want to use these feeds for accessories Kawa charge a fortune for it but I got one for less than 5 ($8USD) from ebay - search Omron 27002. Plug it straight into the plug and attach your accessory to the cables, job done.

Some of them are likely for unused items like o2 sensor and ABS, which the US doesn't get.

I swear I've seen a thread about these electrical connections on this forum before.

I do know of the rectangular 4-pin connector next to the Radiator. Check my siggy for the link to it. I connect a 12V Cig plug socket to it.

That would be great to be able to hook up driving lights with those cables. Thanks for the info.

yea 2damax basically used the bottom two holes (if held with the way he shows in his thread) as an accessory power source. I'm doing the same with a cig lighter power source this weekend...

thanks for all the info,, lol if it wasnt for curious people like yall we would all be driving around with that useable stuff just dangle'in around right in front of us

I know this is an old thread but it relates to the question I want to ask, so...

I'm too lazy to get a relay so I hooked up my GPS to the "relay switch" pins in the front connector, so I'd have switched power. (Instead of getting a relay to switch the output from the other pins on and off.) It seems to work, but are there any disadvantages of doing this? Is the current over the relay switch lines weaker, or is drawing it going to harm some other system on the bike?

Thanks for the scoop on the Omron!

By the way, the smaller bullet connector under your seat is the one you can jump to get the FI codes. See this thread, Invader's post (#6).
