Beware. Both wire tails at the satnav side are black but if you check them against the mating connector on the loom you will see that one wire is red/black (+ve) and the other is plain black (-ve).
Yes. @Derek is the master of all things electric...and a d4mn good addition to our community!Good advice thank you.
No it's not. It is a 2-pin connector with ground and ignition switched +12V. The worst you can do with it is blow the fuse.Isn't that the plug that is designed for the Ducati MMS and the OEM Alarm, if so there has to be a two way interaction. Or are those accessories pluged in elsewhere.
We have 2 SSS and wanted to power a GPS as well as a tankbag, so I installed a PDM60 on both bikes. The PDM60 connects directly to the battery and provides 6 power output circuits with programmable amperage for each output circuit up to a total of 60 amps.
The PMD60 uses a switched power source to turn itself on and it is for this purposes I used the switched power source on the right side that many have discussed in this thread. The PDM60 has a programmable delay on its power up to allow for the start up of with bike with no extra demand on the battery.
I used this same system on my previous Multistrada for several years with out issue.
The PDM60 is solid state with circuit breakers rather than fuses and is specifically designed for motorcycles, snowmobiles and other similar machines, so it is vibration and water "proof." It is also specifically designed to be "invisible" to the CAN bus system on the SSS and many other current bikes. Read more about it here: http://pdm60.com/
I highly recommend if you need to power more than one device. We have iphone charger and V1 radar detector in the tank bags and GPS on the bar end ram mount. Works great.
Sadly I think you're correct. Same same but different when they blamed me for my frobt fairing. They declined my claim but what really pished me off was that they denied everything I had complained about since day one when I got the bike. They pick and choose the low hanging fruit.BEWARE!! BEWARE By using this plug you may be blamed for Damaging your bike By Ducati if something goes wrong with your bike !!! !!Hi All this thread has been about using the white plug on the R/H side of the tank as a switched feed (power supply) for whatever you need it for Sat Nav, Phone etc. Can those clever ones out there confirm that this is only a feed and does not act as a way to interact with the electronics on your bike.
As you know my bike has been in the dealers workshop for 10 weeks. it is now having the Wiring Loom replaced in a bid to fix the problems, The bike was fine other than a DQS Fault before it went to the Dealer. all faults started appearing while in the care of the Dealer. I have just received an email from the service manager telling me the Loom has arrived and they are proceeding with replacing it. He has Said that he has been asked by Ducati (who in turn have been asked by Ducati in Italy) if i can supply them the details of the non OEM components that were fitted to the bike, as in the product details of the accessories and fitting instructions that were supplied with it. Also if you can tell us who fitted it for you.
IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE GOING TO TRY AND BLAME ME FOR THIS.
@Derek @Ed @se7en @amoslws I think you guys have all used this plug, any opinions
Sorry, man, I didn't use it. I hope they don't blame you for all this nonsense. Clearly, something went wrong while it was in their care. Only the QS was problematic. Everything after that is squarely on them!
Thanks @Derek My wiring loom has been changed and it seems that there is a fault somewhere on it. I asked them to put to me in writing their findings when investigating whether the use of this plug and my motodinamic tail light was not the cause (or was if that is the case). They have up until now refused to discount that it may be the cause of the problems. I have always believed that it as you said a "Supplementary socket". They wanted to drop the bike back to me in a van with out a tail light fitted. Saying Ducati have told them they must not refit it !!The connector on the RH side of the steering head is described on the wiring diagram as a "Supplementary socket". What could that be for other than fitting an extra such as a satnav?
Thanks mate Is the Motodinamic tail light on the list ? we are getting a raw deal with having to deal with these importers who act as ducti :frown2:My understanding of Australian Consumer Law is you do not have to use OEM to maintain warranty, you can use any quality parts. It does, however, become a grey area.
I seem to recall Ducati will need to prove the after market accessories caused the fault, they can't just say they aren't going to honour a contract just because they claim something is faulty.
It goes without saying, but make sure you record all conversations (not actual recordings, but you know what I mean) and keep all communications, receipts, reviews etc. Check the Ducati website to see if the product is listed under their partnership program, even as far as using a wayback machine to look at older versions of the website.
