jege41 Hi
You should have a look at the Eastern Beaver PC8 for your electrical accessory needs,it'll make things much easier to install and maintain your device's. .
For example if you blow the fuse on the OEM cigarette plug you have to tear it down the plastics again to get at it.

PeterLG Hello everyone. I have just purchased a 2018 Africa Twin DCT and the bike is still very new to me. I want to fit auxiliary lights, my GPS/sat-nav and the accessory power socket to the bike.
Does anyone know of a video link or or a link to written instructions so how to get access to the areas I need to get to.

Am I correct that parts of the fairing have to be removed first? Any links or guidance would be much appreciated.

1) Select Honda User at the login screen
2) Select bike size 751 and bigger
3) Then select CRF1000
4) the select what you want from all the OEM accessories with all the installation documentations.

Good Luck

Welcome to the forum.

I believe in this thread and others (just search for "front accessory" or "aux lights") you can find all info you need. The MY2018 has few electrical modifications comparing to previous versions, but the front and rear accessory sockets works the same.
You can choose to use the front accessory socket for both aux lights and GPS (like I did), but remember that total current absorbed from that connector should not be too high (5-6 amperes). If you have normal LED lights it should be ok. The connector is a Sumitomo HM090 (4 pins), if you want to do a "clean" work, best is use the corresponding connector (you can find it at Rugged Roads, I believe) and then cabling as you need.
If you plan higher wattage than probably it would be a good idea to use one of the power distribution kits available on the market (like the 3CS from Eastern Beaver). If you're not expert in electrics than better have some help from friends who understand the subject, just to avoid mistakes and streamline the work. The Eastern Beaver kits are ready to use and easier to install.
About the fairing it's not that difficult, but items must be removed in the correct order. You can find several videos on youtube that show you how to remove the plastics from a CRF1000L.
Good luck!

  • Blue (Main Beam)
I can confirm that the South-African spec ATAS does NOT have the the Blue (Main Beam) wire, only the other 3.
  • Red/Yellow (+)
  • Green (-)
  • Blue/Black (Fog Light Indicator)
  • N/A

I have wired my auxiliary spots from an Eastern Beaver 3 wire setup under the seat, ignition swithed 12V, through the OEM FOG Light switch and through to the dash via the Blue/Black wire on the front 4 way option plug.

Thanks
Yes, I would use the rear option connector for that use. If you plan to connect several others accessories, than evaluate adding some power distribution kit, like the ones from Eastern Beaver.
