R1150RT Dash mount power socket location?


Recommended Posts

What is the best location on the dash to install a BMW power socket (outlet)?


By best I mean ease of installation, minimal impact on existing fittings etc.


I want to add one up front for my tank-bag electrification. As I use a Big Mak tank bag that pivots from the front I do not want wires from the saddle area.

I used a step bit on low speed to drill one on the left dash on the right side of the plastic rectangle where the radio channel viewer goes.

Use caution though left of the instruments. The reset tube for the odometer takes up more space than you might guess!

Non-destructive installation is using an RS power outlet kit bolted underneath the fork centre adjacent to the igntion switch/lock. You take the power off the blue connector on LH side of tank. You need to remove tupperware and cut off a prong on the blue connector. Other than that, its basically plug and play.
