I think it will, there is a spare connector on the right hand side of the headlight on mine that I suspect is for the driving lights.
I am looking for a button to fit to the top blanked out position on my mirror mounted fog light switch assembly, any would do, a spare hazard light/mode button/heated grips button etc etc.
As to whether it will just work or if the ECU needs reprogramming is another matter.

Looks like you already have the led lights. You must be like a riding buddy of mine. His '12 GSA is lit up like a rock concert. High and low converted to 55w HID. Aux lights converted to 55w HIDs and an extra set of lights of course converted to 55w HIDs. He has ballasts everywhere.

That's using the stock aux light location as well as adding 2 to the forks. The fork lights are nice because they move with the handlebars.

To use that LED plug you have to talk to the computer and say please, (via the dealer)

I installed the OEM LED fog lights myself, the wiring is a little confusing in that there is a plug that you remove the protective cap from and connect the harness too and when all is said and done there is another plug (on the add-on wire harness) left dangling with nothing connected to it (I moved the protective cap to it), the instructions list that it is for Daytime Riding Lights which I assume is utilized only on non/US spec'd bikes.
Dealer charged $120 to enable the fogs, it also included 2 hours of software updates, the only update I noticed was that the Outside Air Temperature reading on the instruments now reads Fahrenheit in .5 increments, 45.5, 46, 46.6, 47, 47.5 and so on, the Nav-V though still reads in converted Celsius though 45.9, 46.8, 47.7....

I do not believe that you will be able to wire another set of fogs parallel to the OEM set and have them work off the same switch and wiring, the latest CanBus system appears to be very picky.

Correct. You may be able to wire them using the fog hot as a trigger, but you will need fused power from the battery of fusebox.

You could also use the Clearwater Canopener.

Here's a pic from this weekend with my 2015 GSA where you can see the mounts for my new Clearwater Erica's. Best frarkle for the bike by far. I use to have the Krista's on my previous GSA and these new ones are 3X brighter. The way it connects to the canbus system is brilliant as well.
