So instead of wasting time, i thought i would post to those that know.

I want to put an electrical accessory on a switched connection (i have an in-line fuse), is there one available on the bike for those? is it independently fused?

If not without taking too much apart where is the best place to wire into?

thanks GRiSO Guru's

Reverse TARDIS,

You could wire in an automotive type outlet (read cigarette lighter socket) with a switch in front of it (and a fuse) and connect this directly to your battery. Though I am not sure where you would end up putting it on a GRiSO - my Sport has heaps of space in comparison.

Mine had a socket under the seat but it was a right royal pain in the arse to access - especially with luggage on the seat. So I put it so it faces externally through the side of the inner guard, and it has a "light weather" cap - also doubles as a charging point when the battery is feeling unloved. Mine is not switched, but I simply pull what is connected to it (phone/tablet/camera) when I pull into a town and plug it back in when I go to restart the whole shebang. A switch would be easier but I couldn't be arsed.

There's a GPS coupling either under the right wing or tucked up behind the ECU. It's only powered when the key is on. I think it's a Tom Tom style plug.

...but check the thin wires that feed it ! I wouldn't draw more than about 3Amps from it.
And, I had to add a 3A fuse into position 'F' in the underseat fusebox before I ggot poser to mine.

There's always this option
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The connectors will plug into the brake light or tail light circuit and supply switched power.

There you go, i knew you guys would know!

I only want to draw 2Amps, so that will be great, i shall take it apart tonight and see.

I am shocked though how tight the thing is built, there is not room anywhere!!

My GRiSO's Tom Tom plug only gives current when the engine is running, not with key in the on position.
I have a Garmin plugged into it so I don't care. I plug my electric vest into a plug directly attached to the battery.
