Hi all,


I live in SoCal (Murrieta north of San Diego) and this will be my first Ducati. Received a call from GP Motorcycles that the bike (SS S/White) is in the shop, just needs to be prepped and then it'll be ready to go. It'll compliment my Aprilia Caponord which I use as my long distance commuter bike. Looking forward to the fun as well as learning a thing or two from you guys and gals >:)

Cheers on your new toy! You'll enjoy it. Could you do me a favor and ask them whether the power line near the front right of the tank can be used to power phones or is it reserved for the heated grips? And which side of the male plug is positive, marked 1 or 2?

Welcome in the Ducati world. Even if the V2 has lost part of its 'mojo' because of anti-pollution rules, when you try it, you can't live without it !

Welcome to the forum!

Hopefully we see some pics of the new Duc next to the Aprillia in the Garage section of your profile!

klev,


This was the response from GP Service: "The plug for the heated grips can only be used for that.That is because it is integrated with the bikes electricals, so it may not workright if you try to hook up something else to it. I am not sure about the pins."

Thanks spartan. I wonder what others who have used this line for sat/phone connections have to say

I used the plug thinking it was for accessories 🙄
I'll check with my dealer tomorrow
Because I have ordered the heated grips and they will need that connection
So I may need to disconnect and wire directly off the battery
I really don't see a problem using the point if it's not required.
It's a switched 12v dc supply just fuse it down to what's required.

I'll be interested also as I want to add my phone for music/sat nav, etc. Well on another note, signed the papers today for the bike...it was already prepped and I could have taken it for its maiden voyage, but I want to have the accessories added before it leaves the shop.

I have a xgrip mount that has a USB female and two wires that need to be connected to a power supply. "Input voltage: 9-30V exceed 30V auto power off" is what it says in the details. so it think im good.

Received "the" call from my dealer today (Saturday) that my bike is ready to go and all of the accessories I ordered are installed. Unfortunately, I couldn't pick it up as I had so many other things to do. But I'll get it sometime within the week

The spare plug on the right hand side is connected to the electronics so that the settings of the heated grips shows on the dash.
