Extra power socket
on: November 12, 2020, 04:49:24 PM
Iím thinking about putting another power outlet by the handle bars as the original location for the existing one is crap I am looking to piggyback off the existing plug that goes into the socket and run a fresh loom up to the handle bar area but canít find out what type of plug goes into the back of the power outlet it doesnít seem to be a standard tyco TE connector but is actually quite small has anyone done this mod yet ?

Hi,
I bought 2*USB + CL from Aliexpress and installed to left side of handlebars.
It is connected directly to batery, cable is long enough with fuse and battery terminals at the end so really easy installation.

I hooked up a USB quadlock charging base to the factory Nav power supply behind the headlight (right side).  Super easy to do and a very clean install.  That connection is good for 10w and can be hooked up to whatever kind of connector you want.

Already have the factory fitted sat nav cradle installed so canít use that but I have found a cable on eBay which plugs into the back of the outlet socket and the main cable that plugs into the socket is then pigtailed off with approximately 1m of cable with the correct plug on the end of that to mount into another socket so Iíve ordered it and will see if it works

The Y connector for the factory powerlet is pretty cool, do you have the eBay link for it?
