    My CT doesn't have one, I had to retrofit to both a 2012 and 2015 model... Not sure if they come as standard fit on newer bikes?

    Oh ok.
    No biggy to fit one when I get home, just hope my phone battery lasts the ride home.

    Some of the best rides I’ve had have been when I’m lost....

    Did you get home?  If so, how are you finding the CT?

    Assuming the installer used the full Honda parts specified for the install, Maverick, you now have the OEM accessory sub-harness that will support two more accessories in a switched manner as long as total load of all three accessories doesn’t exceed the ampacity of the OEM accessory fuse in the bike’s fuseblock.
