Weird - I just found this same thing yesterday evening whilst fitting my seat bag straps. Now I know what it is - and I'm looking forward to using it!

RR are getting some good stuff like this on their site now, they also have a similar connector for the front, They also stock some service and spare items that are handy as like tubes.

Green ground -

This is correct, connected my sat nav into the green and Red/Yellow for a switched supply.

The socket behind the dash is the obvious place to take sat nav but this is so much easier than removing the front panels.

I doubt it. I think the wiring is going to be far too narrow gauge to carry any decent sort of current, so I'll be putting in a separate battery connection for heavy current draw and charging. Even if the wiring can handle enough current, the voltage drop due to the light gauge will mean you're not putting the voltage into the battery that the charger is putting out.

Will it necessarily be an issue? Not sure, but why risk it?

Has anyone seen another source of these waterproof plugs? RR has the 4pin underdash and the 6pin underseat accessory plugs, but they're a bit pricey, especially when you add shipping halfway around the world. I've seen them on another site some months ago, but can't find it, and don't know the official name for them.

Quoted $125 AU for Honda 12 volt socket and 3 hours at $110 per hour to fit it from my local dealer where I purchased the bike from. Any one know how easy / hard it is to fit, seems expensive to me.

I have bought the connector from rugged roads and used the switched supply for my chain oiler. I think the wiring info is on their web page.
