12 V Accessory Jack

Ever wish you had a way to plug in a 12 V accessory without having to resort to a converter cable with the BMW plug on one end and a "standard" 12 V jack jack on the other end?

I ran across a 12 V jack last night when looking for another item and decided I would install it on my LT. I have probably had this covered jack for years. Took about 15 minutes to install and wire in. It doesn't mar the beauty of the bike and it is sure a lot more handy than having to use a converter cable.

Drilled 1 1/8" hole in the side cover, wired it to the battery with a 15A fuse on the positive side and I was done.

Re: 12 V Accessory Jack

I really don't know for sure where I got it. Probably WallyWorld or maybe Fred Meyers (Krogers). I searched the web and found the exact unit I installed. Found it at http://www.wittydeals.com/popup_image.php?pID=179 (picture) 12" negative lead, 17' positive lead.
http://www.wittydeals.com/advanced_s...accessory+jack (link to page)

Most of the others I found looked like they were designed to mount to an overhead flat panel. The round formfactor made it dirtbag easy to install.

The package label for the one I installed was from a company called ELECTRO-TEK item #10749 All-Weather Power Socket.

I did find it at Amazon but the indication was that it was out of stock.

Re: 12 V Accessory Jack

One problem, cigar lighter sockets come loose. That is the reason for the bayonet style power plug.
