Correct connectors for spare switched power line

I have a 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 and want to add a USB charger to power my phone while using it as a GPS. I found the spare switched power wires under the left fairing that other posts refer to.

Will a SAE cable (see attached photo) connect to these wires or do I need individual male and female bullet connectors?

I thought of that many years ago and am sorry to say Kawasaki's bullet connectors do NOT fit SAE connectors. Luckily, the bullet connectors are a very standard size and available in any autoparts store and many hardware stores.

I installed this on my '19, and it so far has worked great. And I can confirm kenors is correct; bullet type.
