12 volt power outlet
« on: June 30, 2016, 11:27:40 pm »
yesterday for the first time I tried the 12 volt power outlet in the glove box and behold......nothing  :084: , no power ( btw I tried two different items) however the USB outlet right next to it does work....ideas!? does it run on a dedicated fuse ? if not , what is it with so I can check if other item works and search some other cause!?

It does have a dedicated fuse (10A) at position #2 of the fuse box closest to the front of the bike. It could also be that the connector has come off. Just take the storage box out (only 2 screws) and you can check it easy enough.

You best have a look at the back side of the power socket!

The conector at the back of that socket is a moulded plug housing two female spade terminals
that push on to the back of the socket, and is covered by a weatherproof shroud.

It is possible that it might have been pulled off,
but I can't imagine that in itself would cause the fuse to blow.  :084:

The glove box power plug only operates when the bike is running.
