As you can see the green plug is the TPS leads that tell the throttle body position.

The black plug is the heat grip wiring that connect to the extension. The heated grip simply plug in the end of the TPS.
When I removed the stock handlebars, the original TPS didn't have the black plug. Just the two wires (Black and White) caped off using heat shrink tubing. The Heater instructions talk about this and to add the plug. As the new TPS had this plug, I was saved the trouble of cutting the wires.
I taped the lighter at the lighter. That line is fused to 15 amps so it should handle it without any problem.
Nice instruction!!!! Thank you.
So as I understand it, I'll have to cut the tubing away from the black and white wires ( the ones coming from the middle of the TPS ) and add the interlocks.
And to further understand the directions which called for the extension wire from the left heated grip to go beyond the right side handlebar. Is that to provide enough slack in the wiring to allow you to pull the TPS away from the handlebars to gain access to the connections for any future repairs? Clearly the wiring from the TPS running thru the handlebars goes to the middle of the bars but I guess if you made the connection there you wouldn't have any slack to pull the TPS out. Does this sound right?
