GPS Power

Anybody know if there is an unused plug or connector behind the headlight that can be used for switched 12v?
Looking to wire up my gps power cord.

not behind the headlight but it's tucked in the left side of the frame.

Anyone use the battery tender lead? Is that the one you're referring to Sonic?

the DDS connector under the seat? Nope, one I'm talking about lives around front left frame rails.

Yeah...I've seem the connector you are referring to. I'll have to try and find a suitable plug for it. Was hoping there might be something behind the headlight to keep things a bit neater.

That's what I use for my phone. I wrap the connectors with electrical tape during riding season to reduce chances of moisture getting inside. I ran a 2 foot SAE cable along the trellis, then under the lip of the tank cover up to the ignition.

I used this:



and this:



to power my GPS. I needed the car-type 12V supply because the Garmin power cord is also the Traffic monitor antenna. I changed the connection from a battery terminal connection to an SAE connection to make it so I can run it to the power under the seat. I also got this


in case I want to add stuff like the USB charger separately. It's all under the seat with my Scorpio alarm so it's starting to get busy under there!

So, I finally got around to ordering and installing the correct female sumitomo HM 090 connector to plug into the heated grips connector on the left side of the frame trellis. Works great, and getting the tank lifted wasn't too hard.
