Okay boys and girls. I have my EC grip heaters and power extension harness to get to the right side of the fairing on my '07. I thought this would be a simple job I could get done this evening before tomorrow (went riding today) but have hit a snag or am brain dead.

Where have you routed the EC harness from the left to the right side to get power over there without pulling the shelter? I can't seem to find a path to keep the wires inside or not pinched in a plastic joint.

A pic or two would be great.

Thanks

If I understand for sure what you're asking, the power plug is now located just below and right of the ignition switch, yes, under the shelter. But, you can get to it by just raising the front right of the shelter up.
It is a red connector. I don't think the instructions indicate the new location of the plug. Other than that the grip heater wires run down the bars and meet in the center where they are all plugged together.
This is from memory when I installed them on my '08. I had to ask where the new plug location was. I think it was changed in '06.
If this is not what you are asking, please try again. Roy
ECs instructions say the connector was removed for '06 and later and you must use the aux harness to grap power from under the left pocket.

Are you saying the power connector is there but under the center of the top shelter?

Is the grip heater harness long enough to plug in there?

Sounds like I'm pulling the shelter this morning. Might as well change the air filter while I'm there.

I finished my grip heater installation and indeed found a switched power connector under the top shelter near the right side and used that.

I have done a little how to website for the installation. Not saying it's the right way, it's just the way I did it.
