i thought about it but it fits under the seat, there are 4 locating marks on the inner rear fender where you are supposed to rivet it on to but under the seat seems a bit silly to me, it should be on the outside where you can get to it.

Yes I've had one fitted, and yep it's under the seat, also was too far from the handle bars for me to use Zumo sat nav, which was the whole point of having it  :230: anyway got a extension lead which brings it to front of saddle now not sure it's worth the money, though got optimate lead fitted too at same time
But he was too old,old,old, to rock n roll ol ol but he was too young to die

This 12V power socket sounds a bit strange  :187:

I've hard-wired my navi into the loom with the Honda cable. Otherwise, I don't need power, so no socket required.

SW-Motech do some good power sockets for attaching to the bars.

doc, there is not much room left on the handlebars on the DCT, that handbrake lever takes up a lot of room !!

Do you know, I actually used the 'handbrake'. It's great for stopping the bike from rolling off the sidestand when pointing downhill.

I bought a couple of sockets from Ebay, fitted one to my Fiona's GS and the other I just fitted to my CT.
I removed the left fairing side, took out the dummy switch next to the traction control switch and rounded the hole enough to take the socket, a marine job with the flap cover. Earthed to the frame and a wire to the battery with an in line 20a fuse, sorted! And change out of a tenner! (That's less than £10GBP for you international folk out there!)
Looks very tidy, will be used to charge phone in cradle on LHS of dash and power my air bed pump when camping. I might fit another under the seat for charging our Scala rider headsets.
