'18 RT Switched power source


Recommended Posts

I'm planning to transfer this tank bag rig with V1 and cell phone charger to a new R1200RT. I used the switched connector located behind the front edge of the tank of my '09 K1300GT. I believe this was intended for GPS connection. After a brief inspection of a new RT, and working through the various forums, I haven't been able to identify a handy switched power source. My fallback plan is to remove some plastic and route an unswitched fused lead to the front of the tank. I would prefer switched power. I'm hoping someone can help me find switched power similar to my current setup.

Front Aux. socket is switched, rear also.


You could use either outlet to power a relay and then use a fused connection from the battery to your tank bag.

Thanks to both...sounds simple enough. I found the CANBUS outlets unreliable for powering accessories on an older RT, but it worked fine on the KGT.
