You could use the GPS accessory socket, or other switched point to trigger a relay direct to the battery, fused how you like."Search this thread" keeps giving me "Database Error" so apologies if this has been covered before...
I need a switched 12V source for my AEM wideband sensor. AFAIK this can draw up to 5A when the sensor is heating up (although the bench test video I found said max 1.5A).
I assume this will overload the "satnav accessory socket"? Evidence above suggests this has quite a low current limit?
Any idea where am I most likely to find a higher capacity switched Ign feed, pref. 10A fused?
There is a small gizmo you can buy that plugs into the accessory plig that has 2 usb ports. Use your regular charge cord from your phone.I've done a search, and i can't believe i'm the first to ask this so my apologies, but...
Is there a cord i can use to charge my iPhone that plugs into the accessory socket or, preferably, the GPS 12v plug under the LHS of the tank?
cheers, is is a special size for the accessory port?There is a small gizmo you can buy that plugs into the accessory plig that has 2 usb ports. Use your regular charge cord from your phone.
I've used Powerlet plugs that lock in very snugly.Is there a cord i can use to charge my iPhone that plugs into the accessory socket or, preferably, the GPS 12v plug under the LHS of the tank?

Those lights look good on the UGS, are they Denali D4s?Just thought I'd add to this thread as I'd not seen mentioned an answer to a query I had.
I wanted to add a set of LED lights that came on with my high beam rather than a separate switch. For my
GSA this was achieved with a Hex EZ-Can but there isn't one for the R9T (except a partially functional k1600 unit). Back to basics then for me!
This meant I went back to the method I've used on older bikes by using a relay and tapping into the high beam wiring at the bulb plug.
For those who didn't know this is the yellow wire, or the left wire as you are looking into the plug. I used this as the switched live for the relay and it works perfectly.
I have four things I wired into the bike to get it ready for getting Lost, first would be the GPS. BMW did indeed include the factory GPS plug, zip tied to the frame under the tank under the left side.
Since I don't run a BMW rebranded Garmin unit I just cut the plug and soldered a standard SAE plug that I have on all our bikes so I can move things around easily.
Here's the OEM GPS plug and the finished product, mine just tucks away after making the connection behind the steering head. It's switched on with the ignition and no fuses needed! Thank you CANBUS.
I mounted the Garmin Montana 600 using a, with a 1" RAM arm, putting it centered and not obstructing the view of the gauges. All removable in 1 minute for days I don't need the GPS.
Next up is power for my HPRC hard case on the tail. I removed the BMW accessory outlet, cut the plug off and ran some new wire to the back to another SAE plug which plugs into a panel mount SAE receptacle on my box. Again, switched and fused thanks to BMW.
Here you can see the SAE plug coming from the accessory circuit.
Next up, Gerbings variable heat controller.
This one I wired directly into the battery using the Gerbings harness which has an inline fuse. I routed the harness so the fuse is hanging down in between the battery and the shock to give me access without taking the tank off.
I mounted the controller to the bracket that was used for the BMW outlet, seems to be a good out of the way yet easily reachable position for it. It's attached with 3M Dual lock.
The lead going into the jacket lives in between the tank and seat and can be pulled up when needed.
And finally I installed a standard SAE plug going directly to the battery for charging or jumping the battery ( we carry a 6' SAE to SAE wire with us to jump start if needed). It's also for my Slime Top Up mini air compressor which has a SAE plug soldered on it. (seeing a pattern here?).
I have the tail hanging down on the left side frame, zip tied in place.
I think that's about it for now, so what are YOU going to wire up to your bike.
As some of us setup our bikes I figured a thread to share what and how we are doing it is order. If it uses power, or a mount than this is the thread to post up how you do it.
The more detail and photos the better!
