McHPD, That's a neat switch.... do you remember where you got it?

Do most folks switch their power_outlets?

I'm from there, but I'm not....

Got the switch at Auto Zone - About 5 bucks. I have a Red one for the power outlet and a blue one for my Blue LED Lights. Damn if that ain't Anal Retentive

The only reason I switched it was since the outlet faces forward it may eventually get water in it. I wanted to make it Non-Hot when not in use to keep from havnig a short hazard. Plus, I can swap out the plug if it goes bad without disconnecting from the battery.

I also put a fuse on it as well. Belt and Suspenders

Mine's wired the same route, but is zip stripped to my handlebars to the left of the left riser. It has the snap shut lid to keep the elements out, and you can't even really see it, due to my w/s bag is never latched & the flap covers it as well.

Thought I'd post here instead of starting a new thread since what I did pertains to this thread. Like many others, I routed a 12V power plug ($4 for the adapter at Walmart, and used the leads from my battery tender) off the battery of my C50T to the right side just under seat, plug secured by velcro adhesive strips to the seat and frame. The zip-tie holds the cord, but with a little slack so I'm able to move the plug adapter to my saddlebag to charge my cell phone in there at times. I opted not to drill, hope this holds up to power my cell phone & GPS receiver while mounted on my Ram Mount on the handlebar, which I will order soon. Attached are pics.
