Bullet connectors over the radiator left side?

Anyone know what these go to? They were just hanging out not connected to anything. Lefts of bike over the top of the radiator.

I used a meter to check voltage and nothing off or on or running.

Thanks! It's a 2014 Versys.

4 prong connector is for a relay to power those 12V accessory wires.

I tested with my fluke with these from off to key on and with bike running and there was no voltage. Schematic shows the four pin to be to a test connection. But the bullet connectors don't seem to show up on the wiring diagrams.

Anyone else?

If you go to the accessories page on the Kawasaki site you can find installation instructions for all of the add-ons. The photos show what all of the various connections are.

No relay, no power.

It runs through a 5A fuse... 2010+ models have it.

That's all you need to know.

Never use the trigger wire as a supply wire, when I got my new bike off the showroom floor I started scratching around for power wires and without doing much investigation connected my spots to the trigger wire. Needless to say I fried the positive and negative wires together after a few rides and almost destroyed my harness, the trigger +12V wire is not fused and needs to run to a relay only, the square plug is set up for the OEM relay. If installed, you can run up to 5amps like Invader said, that orange loose fuse under your seat is its fuse and spare.

Yikes!
Thanks for sharing that!
I just installed an accessory fuse panel with an Automotive relay, intending to hook up GPS power, heated grips, and power for the heated vest. I looked at the plug, but I wanted bigger wire and a 30 amp fuse on the power leg to the accessory panel.
Anybody see a problem with utilizing those two grounds for my accessories?

I found a used relay PN Omron 27002-1086 for $6.97 on eBay. Works great!
