Loose wires for ???

Just rode my '14 Versys home two nights ago and noticed 3 loose wires loose under the left front cowling. See pic. Can anyone tell me what the intended purpose for these might be; the dealer couldn't help me? Two black wires with yellow stripe, One white wire with light blue stripe. I thought maybe some hot lines for future add-ons, like extra lights, heated grips, etc. If they're hot, shouldn't they be covered? Any help here appreciated.

That's your 12V accessory outlet... You just need a relay to make it work.

OK help. So if I buy something like heated grips, they would come with that relay that accepts these 3 loose wires? Or do I have to divine what kind of relay I need... because I don't know how to specify proper electrical components, especially on something like this. Anybody have a picture of what they did? Thanks.

The relay will also enable the Kawi gear indicator.

As above, the relay is required if you're going to use the pre-terminated connection for the gear indicator (as well as the power plug connection). In that sense, it enables those particular connections. The advantage (for both the gear indicator, and power plug -- both installed on my bike) is that it's switched. If you install a gear indicator (or most power outlets) on a non-switched line, there's residual power drain... small... but effectual on the battery.

I'll drop a note in passing - don't bother buying the OEM heated grips, which are a contradiction in terms. The price is an inverse relation to the performance. I refer to mine as 'tepid grips' for a very good reason. FYI.

Currently have the Oxford heated grips on my bike, the grips feel great in the hand and are very warm. Even on the lowest of settings they keep my hands warm, at 100% they are almost too hot.

I agree about the oxford grips. I have a set on my Versys and they fit and work great. I like the five different heat settings. I have used them below freezing and they keep my hands toasty warm. The highest setting works great if you have thick gloves on. With thin gloves, the highest heat setting is uncomfortably warm even when the weather is below freezing.
