Do you mean usb port ? If so search for powerlet to usb on Google. Sorry if that's not what you were asking for

thanks for the reply GB
By 'usb port' I mean either a socket to plug a USB cable into or a usb connection.
I'm looking for something 'pre made' that will plug straight into the BMW connection on the XR & connect to a USB device.

Do a search on Amazon, as the one below might not be the cheapest/best etc.

NippyNorman do some already fitted with flying leads, but far more expensive than the solution above

thanks mareng1
I'm looking for a 'flying lead' that i can plug into a connector on the bike (under the seat ) with a USB on the other end. As you say Nippy Norman's appear to be a bit ott on the price front
cheers

Okay - what about this?

Or cheaper:

I have other bikes where I have Zumo 550 power leads running from the battery - to the cockpit area.   I only plug them in (to the Zumo) when the unit is on the bike - the rest of the time - it hangs down loosely from the headstock.  Never had any issue with rain or corrosion of the terminals.
