2016 Hyperstrada GPS and Heated Grips Connectors behind Headlight

Bones,

Do you recall the size of the wire? The heated grip wires (Ducati Shop Manual Page 300, Branch 1, Pos. 11 (Right) and 12 (Left) hand heated grip wires) are very small micro-pins that are heat shrinked. Touching these with the multi-meter there is no voltage as they are switched off in the ECU. Just wondering if there may be another pair as tiny as these tucked away deep in the wiring bundle that I did not fish out. Again, not wanting to be destructive, I have not cut open the black plastic wrapping to splay them all out. Figured I could just tug at them gently to get the darn thing to show its head.

The GPS power wire is tucked on the right side, and inside that rubber boot that is zip tied. it is marked GPS or NAV. it is way in there.
go to the beginning of this thread and you will see what it looks like.

2016 Hyperstrada GPS and Heated Grips Connectors behind Headlight

I didn't want to get aggressive ripping into the left and right side harnesses behind the headlight not knowing any details about the "GPS" or "navigator" wire. Ducati truly did a crap job on the shop and owners manuals. It is only list as node 6 on the Owners Manual and then a paltry 1 line mention on Page 300 of a table. They do not confirm which branch it is on, it is not shown in a single illustration, photo, image, schematic. Yes, I could have gotten aggressive and ripped out the entire wire harnesses behind the headlight, but was reticent to do so knowing the damage that could have created to other wires and circuits.

Plan B was to route a DIN-HELLA socket connector through the frame and up to the bars. Better than routing from the battery because the DIN-HELLA socket offers a fuse and operates on the ignition switch so not to drain power when the engine is keyed off.

This is an alternative to those who may not want to tackle the behind the headlight wiring mess.
