Right Switch Group Replacement

Would anyone happen to know how far back into the bike yiou have to go to get tot he connectors for the right switch group? I have takent he handlebar covers and center cover off and STILL cannot find the end of the cable! Does it go all the way into the electrical box under the gas tank? If so, no biggie, I have to go there anyway to replace my starter relay but I am just wondering where this cable ends!

Re: Right Switch Group Replacement

I hope I'm understanding your question correctly - if not, this won't make any sense at all. My heated grip switch (on the right grip cluster) went bad. Didn't want to spend (IIRC) $285 for a new one. I traced just the heated grip circuit to a connector behind the nose cone. I don't know if all the others are there too, there were 4 that I can remember, but at least that one was. I'll try to scout around this forum as I believe I posted some photos of it. Be back in a flash!

Did'ja miss me?
I found the photos on my computer. Here's what I worked on, directly behind the nose, under the dash. Disregard the writing as that had to do with diagnosing the switch problem, but it does show you what the connections look like.

If you are going to have the nose cone off, consider upgrading the head light bulb with a HID system for the low beam.

Got it! I can even make the changes without taking off the nose. My bike is in ENOUGH pieces right now. SCARY!

Re: Right Switch Group Replacement

I have a right side switch group available... The brake switch is probably bad. The wires go to the relay box by the air cleaner....But I don't know where the heated grip wires go QUESTION In your photo #2 the 3 wire female connector goes where?

Re: Right Switch Group Replacement

I'm assuming that question was directed at me? PM sent.
