Auxiliary harness for 12V socket and USB

Howdy all, I am interested in making my own harness for the 12V socket to power my Garmin 62S and the USB connector for phones etc. Would like to hook it up to the 4 way OEM connector to the front just behind the light (not direct to battery).

Would anyone know how to source the 4 way or 2 way OEM water proof connectors. Honda dealers should stock these connectors, but not sure if they sell to the general public. Jaycar sell a different 4 way water proof connector, but I would need to remove the existing connector.

Thanks DEET. Easternbeaver has every possible connector on the bike. I just put an order for the aux harness for the two connections and bought some spare connectors.

Aux. Connector

Hi!

Touratech (at least here in Europe) is offering such connectors (Sumitomo) as well.

Cheers, gerhard

I'd like to do this mod also, but I'm not much of an electrician.

In addition to the harness, I would need the CRF1000 FPS Accessory Kit and a 12v socket correct?

Anything else?

loads of info on this thread 12V power socket retrofit

On my posts with the wiring schematic note I think I have the arrow the wrong way round on the high beam tell, this should be coming out of the connection to switch aux lights on along with high beam, if that is your choice of course. In my schematics that would get rid of the dash switch as it is switched from this tell rather than a manual button. (either with/without a relay depending on what your lighting kit contains). I originally though this high beam tell was like the fog light tell to show your aux lights on if you wanted to light up the high beam indicator on the dash instead of the fog light indicator. I stand to be corrected but I am pretty sure this would be the case. So where I say choose which light you want to light up on the dash this is probably incorrect, you should probably only use the spare fog indicator as this definately will not be connected up to anything else unless the bike already has Honda fog lights of course!

Further down the post you might note that there was actually no OEM cable connected to my high beam tell anyway, so not an option for me to use, must only be certain models or geos maybe, dunno?

Kingleoj2 - so you simply splice all three power outlets together and feed them into the Sumitomo connector? Did you put a fuse in the harness?

I see a fuse on the Honda part, and I would prefer to do it that way, but I'm not sure how it gets wired into the harness.

Rugged Roads also sell the terminal you need to connect to the aux power supply in the dash. They are a UK company and you will find the exchange rate pretty good at the moment. I received the part (to NZ) in 4 days when I ordered mine BTW.
