Lockable stowage box electrical socket
« on: December 13, 2013, 07:05:45 AM »
I just started playing around with how the sockets work.  On mine it seems that the in the lockable compartment the socket is only live when the bike is running. The one in the top box is live with ignition on, engine running or not. The manual seems to say that both are live ignition on, but engine on is a subtle difference.  Is this wat others have found?

That's the way mine works, saaz! I can't quite see why there's a difference between 'engine running' and 'ignition on' but that's the way they've done it!
And the one by your left leg is on all the time!

It's a very good thing that the power to the various accessory outlets, including the side pocket, goes off when the bike is started. It reduces the likelihood that a voltage surge could damage equipment that is plugged at that time. Unfortunately that doesn't always happen if the engine is stalled and I hit the starter too quickly.
