I have a 2019 Adventure Sport bought a little over a month ago. I have noticed the optimate plug that is fitted on LHS below the seat. The handbook makes no mention of it and am wondering if it is used for connecting a charger and whether it can also be used to power a tire inflator. Am hesitant to use the accessory outlet (cigarette lighter connection) as believe it is only rated at 2A.
Thanks guys

I have the AS with a battery charger pigtail connected direct to the battery. I suspect yours will be the same. I have tried my air compressor and it works fine. One of the two wires will have an inline fuse but I cant remember its rating - higher than 2A I reckon

I believe that the charger pigtails, Optimate/Battery tender are usually something the dealer "throws in" and not put on by Honda? It least every bike I have had with one attached (or not) was because the dealer-installed it (or didn't). I believe that is why there is no mention of it in the handbook.

I recently got a digi tyre inflator and it worked a treat from the accessory outlet no problem, obviously just make sure the bike is started when using and the amperage should be ok. I wouldn't use the optimate plug for accessories.
