Hi all,
Fitted ram mount into end of LH bar and now looking for where to connect the power lead of my tomtom 400
My multi 1200S has a dedicated connector. Does anyone know if there is one on the SS

By the way, 400 miles and except for mirror vibration it is brilliant.

There's a 1amp usb connector beneath the seat

Thank you

Of course, the usual charging device is USB so perhaps is 5v anyway. I was just wondering if there was a dedicated power connector under the tank area for example as with the multi. Otherwise, I can just wire the supplied connector to a USB connector.

There is one. Its capped and is zip tied on the left side, on my bike, just outside the fairing

That is a dealer installed SAE charge cable and is fused and connected directly to the battery. It could be used to power anything requiring 12vdc but certainly would be an inelegant kludge for this bike.

There is a wiring diagram in the owner manual. Access it on line, enlarge it, and look to see if there is a switched power provision. If it is not a switched source, the installed device could run the battery down if someone forgot to turn it off.

If there is no switched power provision, the tried and true method has been to tap into the tail light wire. I haven't looked at this model schematic but on other models it is a yellow wire.

Solved it.

After taking the fairings off I found there is a connector on the RIGHT hand side exactly same as was on the multi. Pictures below but note: after doing this I realised that you don't need to take the fairings off - the connector is visible just under front of tank.

Any chance you can repost pic 2, unable to view it. Curious to see the connection.:laugh:

Pic 2 attached - don't know why they are all rotated - 90 deg ??

Pic 1 shows connector with 'male' end fitted as comes with bike so you solder the sat nav wires to that.
Pic 2 doesn't actually show the connector - this is the extra length of wire from my sat nav which is just stowed there.

I should also add that although the fairings don't need to be removed, the black panel on top of the fairing does.

Hope this all helps.

Good info.

Did you check to verify if it is switched or not? If it is not, do not forget to turn off whatever accessory is connected or it will drain your battery when the bike is not running.

Great!

C2's information is a very good find indeed.

I had looked at the schematic and saw that there was a spare connector provided but schematics do not provide locations the way a shop manual would. I'm sure his post will save a lot of time for many people.

In case someone is still uncertain as to identify/locate the connector, it consists of the male and female connector ends. It provides a few inches of wire covered with a section of crimped heat shrink tubing. Enough wire is provided to either crimp or solder to an accessory harness.
