Have posted this message on other threads today so apologies for that, but was quoted 3 hours labour fitting time plus cost of socket, $450 all up. Also wondering how hard or easy a job it is.

I believe that the front fairing has to come off, there is a video of how to do this on you tube and I'm sure somebody has even posted a link on here in another post about it, so will be quite fiddly! but if you take your time I'm sure you'll be able to sort it

I have not done it but i had the front off mine last weekend to connect my GPS, I think it plugs in to the front accessory socket and if thats correct I guess you can do the job in less than an hour.

There is a thread on here with links to some videos showing how to take the fairings off, they are very useful, here is the link https://www.africatwinforum.com/forum...t-fairing.html

I went into the dealer to ask if the accessories were in yet and... yes they were; then I looked at the prices and my jaw dropped.

'Y' lead is CAD $117+tax (Accessory Sub Harness Part #: 08U74-MJP-G50)
Accessory socket CAD $155+tax !! (Accessory Socket Part #: 08U70-MJP-G50)

HOW MUCH??!!

The first one is three plugs and some wire. The plugs are GBP5 each!
The socket, equally is not all that complicated!

The 12v socket on Rugged Roads' website has me a little confused - not difficult granted - in that it appears to offer a spare connector on a Y-branch.

Does it offer a spare connector or am I barking up the wrong tree?

It's a fuse

The 12v Socket is generic with the red connector - to make it specific to the CRF1000 Honda have added the 2nd part of the loom - red plug at one end, fuse in the middle, 4 way connector at the other end to plug straight into the CRF1000 :-)
