Adding power to your bike...Electric I mean - February 23, 2009, 05:49 PM

I know people have...But who here has put on a cigarette lighter on their bike and WHERE?!?! Pictures please! Since I use my GPS all the time - I might as well run a wire and put a socket on the end. Running the wire I dont have a problem with. Its where to put the mount!

Ive seen some people put it along side the seat...etc..I lost all my links because they were on my other computer...

There are many options. Here is a BMW style on my ex's ZR7S



Powered tank bags work well too. Here is Kim's FZ. Here I used a S.A.E type plug to power a 3 outlet cig plug adapter in the tank bag.


My Sprint has both. Powerlet is a good place to look online. If you want "BMW" style you can pick them up cheap at a John Deere store, but you are in the city, right?

Works fine on that bike. You may have to watch handle bar clearance.

There are tons of no drill mounts

If you only use it on the bike, I would change the connector to something else. You could use the old connector to make an adapter for when you use it in the car.

Anderson powerpole would be an example:

I could give you some at a bike night or whatever.

Then you hide the pigtail just under your front fairing, about where that plug is on the Zx7
