K1200R Power Socket
Happy New Year !
I have a 2007 K1200R. From what I've found it was built in May of 2007. I've read that some of the Power Accessory Outlets on the bikes are only rated at 5amps for some of those years. I've seen a retrofit kit and other cables that state it will help solve that problem. Since I want to run my Gerbings heated liner and my air compressor from that socket.
Does anyone know for sure if that socket is only rated at 5amps ? and if so then will the BMW Fused power lead that I purchased which connects to the battery be connected to the power socket instead and provide the power that I need ? I'm a complete noob when it comes to the CANBUS system on these bikes.
