Background on issue at hand
I am installing Ducati accessory heated grips on my desert X. The right hand side went easy. On the left hand side I found what looks like the plug on the RI connector (see blue above). I tried removing the plug but it is securely glued in place, almost to the point that it seems like they dont want you to remove it. I tugged on the plug with some needle nose pliers but all it did was to deform it. I stopped thinking I had the wrong plug. I looked around in that area hoping to find another plug, but this is the only one.

Note: the right hand side had a dummy plug end the was not glued that easily un clipped VS the left hand side which is totally glued and no sight of a dummy plug

Question
Has anyone run into this issue on the left hand side of the bike when installing heated grips? any advise?

Are you sure you have the proper plug? I was able to access the connector w/o pulling the tank, but it wasn't the easiest to get at. I had to use a long pick (think dentist visit 😂) to get it out and accessible. It did have a plug, but again, the pick helped to release the plug. Also, if you have the proper connector, it will have a white tag on it indicating it's the heated grip plug. Good luck.
