Power supply
« on: January 06, 2019, 08:02:00 AM »
Little mod I made up and fitted... power directly off the battery for phone chargers or lights... and I rewired my Optimate to fit as well.

Limiting factor is the wire and fuse size. I have fitted a 7.5a and will do everything I need so far

Future plan is to remove the socket on the fairing and replace with USB outlets

Very clean and nice idea.
Yest the USBs are more useful these days. Along with an SAE direct wired to the battery.

I must admit, I am surprised that bike manufacturers don't just fit USB outlets these days, I haven't got anything that charges from a standard 12v power outlet  :027:  .My Triumph was good -  Hella/Din at the front and USB under the seat...getting there  :002:
