Searching previous threads, all I can find are expired links and/or guides on XB's only, not an 1125CR.

Can anybody shed some light as to where it would be best to connect my heated grips, using this diagram (if it's the correct one), or any other one from the manual here http://ukbeg.com/downloads/1125/1125manual.pdf

Will I be able to add them into the headlight/accessory wiring, just after the 10A or 15A fuses from i presume under the headlight cowl, or is it better to wire them further back with their own fuse, but still after the ignition? (The ones I have are 30W total) Thanks.

There is a spare auxilliary plug behind the flyscreen specifically for this, not only is it only live with ign on it also turns itself off if battery voltage gets too low whilst running.

Wow, perfect. I'll have a look for this later.

Does it look like a standard 2 pin battery tender connection?

If you've got the 1125 manual look under page 2-75 and it shows the plug next to the headlight connector, if you have it on pdf it will be page 150 I think. If it's never been used there will be the other half of the plug connected in it with a couple of rubber blanking plugs, you just need to get some of the connector pins to fit to the end of your cable you are connecting.

Excellent, thanks. One last question then; do you know what this connector is called in order to go online and buy the pins? But I suppose I could just cut this off and use any other connector I can find.

Sure enough, I found that plug, but it only has about 1v coming out of it. :?

That's a start... Just need another 11...

Plug/socket is a Sumitomo MT, normally used for fuel injectors...

Anyway, terminals available here.

I'll double check the measurements with the genuine Buell ones I have once I get the chance...

:P

Thanks. But why would it only have 1v? I would have thought it would have 12 or 0.

Yeah. Can't remember if it has its own relay (but I vaguely remember it being relayed in the ECM). May be worth a wiggle if there is one...

Wiggling the relay? Would that be under the seat? The connector just has about 2" of wire before going into the massive bundle of wires that goes under the frame.

But anyway, this connector should have the full 12v shouldnt it, if it's wired correctly, yeh? It's not as if it's designed for something else.

Did you check voltage with the engine running ? also if using a digital multi meter some cheap ones aren't always accurate. Select the voltage display on the dash whilst checking the voltage. if the dash is showing charging in the 13 volt range then the socket should be live.

Connector looks like this:

Keyway may be wrong though...

Yeh I tried it running, and my multimeter works fine, tried it directly on the battery. I think it might be a naff earth on that connector though, as I tried it connected to the positive and the earth from an indicator wire and it came up 12v. I presume a poor earth is causing it to be just 1v.
