    Left side of frame near the steering head....it's in the owners manual too.

    I wish they had added another behind your left leg like they had on my K1200S. It was great for powering my heated gear.

    There is one taped to the subframe, left side under the seat frame on a Gen-1...it's also in the owners manual...but nobody seems to read it. Section 10 page 187.

    Just looked at the manual. It's hard to tell from the illustration but it says there is a connector for the onboard socket tied behind the rear trim panel. I'm assuming that you have to buy the actual power socket and mount it. However, it's good to know it's there.

    Thanks

    I mounted a Powerlet outlet on the subframe of my Gen 1 to use with my heated vest.  There is an existing bolt hole that can be used ...

    If it's a Gen2 there are 3
    - one for the GPS, located as mentioned earlier
    - one behind the left trim panel, left of the 40Amp fuse. That is very easy to get off once you get the habit
    - one hidden under the panel that covers the seat lock. Pannier carrier and grab rail needs to come off to access it

    The problem is in finding and buying a pre-wired connector, and that one has also the lock to attach it (in case of the left wing one). If someone has found one, let me know

    My solution:
    - I took two the right size needles out of my wife's kit and figured out which ones fitted best.
    - stuck them in, measured + and -
    - drilled holes in the dummy counterpart, such that needles can go through
    - crimped leads onto needles
    - assembled everything with a bit of plastic foil thru which I inserted the needles
    - push some silicon, or  construction glue inside the dummy connector, take care the needle position is maintained. The foil is to ensure nothing goes thru
    - wait a few hours, take the plug off, remove the plastic foil

     Works for me. I used the left wing one for a Pro-Oiler chain lube system, and a Alibaba 2x USB power outlet

    The O.E.M rear power socket (available as an option, or from BMW Bohling etc.) using the aforementioned supply found under the front of the seat, fits the Gen 1 here:
