Anyone with a XR or HB ever install a powerlet into the right saddlebag? If so, what connector on the bike did you hook it up to?
Are these standard with the XC and XCT? if so, can anyone please tell me which connector it hooks up to?
Appreciate the help.. I am think of moving over to heated gear
I installed a Powerlet outlet specifically
for heated gear... through
the left side cover. I describe this mod in detail in this gallery of pics, captions, and parts:
I realize that permanently altering stock tupperware is not everyone's cup of tea, but I think it came out great, i.e., I definitely pleased myself (as Ricky Nelsen sang).
As I note in that gallery, I used that same position -- below my left thigh -- for five years with my Burgman, and still think that that's the best position for a heated gear outlet. I connect my gear's coax plug with a coiled cord (like old telephones used to have) that has a coax on one end and a male Powerlet on the other.
The outlet is wired directly to the battery, with an in-line fuse. This direct connection also lets me use that outlet for my battery tender, the end of which I put another male Powerlet outlet on. (Yep, I know I could use the dash outlet on my XCT, or use an SAE connector, etc., but I find just popping in a Powerlet is easier.)
Just another way of approaching this, in case anyone's interested.
