    Can't find USB Socket under seat of Gen 2 XR

    Hey Folks,

    I have a 2021 S1000XR and can't seem to find my USB socket.  At the risk of sounding dumb, when they  say the socket is under the seat, do they mean you take the seat off and it's in the storage compartment?  Or, do they mean it's on the outside, under the seat where a DIN connector is usually located (which is what I have) thanks!

    I had an early version of the Gen2 and they do not have this USB socket.
    Might be the same in your case.
    Manufacturing date of your Gen2 could be late 2020 and USB socket is only an accessory as of 2021.
    Worth checking before continuing the search.

    Behind the left side panel is an auxiliary socket as you said, don't know if in 21 model this is replaced by the USB socket?

    I have a very late 21 model (MY22) and the USB socket is under the seat at the rear, above the small storage compartment. You couldn't really miss it, if it was installed.
    The socket behind the dash on the left is still a 12V DIN socket.

    Yeah, plenty of space in there for my iPhone 12 Pro Max. Tried it in the pocket of the new Multistrada and the 1250RT and it didn't fit (with it's case on).

    I have a 2021 XR Sport with NO USB under the seat. However, I can see the plug that the USB would be plugged into to function.

    Looks like I would just need to purchase a few parts to install: https://www.bobsbmw.com/store/microfiche/BrowseParts.aspx?GroupName=Optional+Accessories+(77)&MBike=61162&GroupID=77

    I bought one like this that works well on my Gen 1. This appears to be ok for the newer models but is the last one listed if you can wait for the longer delivery time 😁
