12V Lighter Outlet
« on: January 26, 2012, 10:46:36 AM »
Did anyone installed a lighter outlet on their bike?  I've installed mine under the seat and can share some photos if you are interested.  I didn't want to drill a hole or screw a bolt to the bike so the installation didn't involve anyone of them.

I'm waiting for the SW-Motech Satnav mounting bracket and hopefully get a decent location to fix the socket without having to do any modification to the bike.

I was not able to find a suitable place for the socket at the front section of the bike without drilling holes on the original parts.  Even with drilling, it wouldn't be the way I wanted.  So, I decided to hide it under the seat.  Now I need to figure the best way to run the charger cable from the socket to the front where I plan to install by navigation device.  Navigation installation will also be difficult since the handle bars are covered with plastics.  I will get some installation brackets custom made to fit (again without damaging/drilling any original parts).  That is my next challenge.

Have a look at the SW Motec mount on the other thread or you can use a RAM mount attached to the clutch or brake lever bracket. None of the methods require any modifications to the bike.

I fitted an Optimate connector direct to the battery which allows me to charge battery overnight, charge phone while riding (via a lighter socket) and also use some jump leads. I keep it all under the seat.

I didn't know the RAM mounts before.  I've checked the website, they have fantastic mounts.  Thanks for the info.  Now, I need to find a way to order some mounts.

Here in Singapore, every automobile has to have a transponder fitted to it (for tolls, parking etc) and it uses a 12v supply. So, upon investigating the dealer fittment, I found 2 wires running straight off the battery terminals to this device, however, the live end had an inline fuse on it - really simple !

Also found it on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/INLINE-MINI-FUSE-HOLDER-COVER-AND-FUSE-/130624864561?hash=item1e69d94131&item=130624864561&pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr#ht_500wt_922

Unless someone thinks this isn't a sound idea, I propose doing this for a lighter outlet next weekend.
