If you are looking to hook into the harness with the connector under the right hand side of the dash, near the blinker, then this is the fitting I bought to do it:-

Another day, another go at this.

I'm hoping that I now have the right GPS plug. This was in the place as outlined in the document direction posted yesterday and was indeed covered by a plastic cap.





I am assuming that the pin on the left is the "1" - can't quite make that out as clearly as the "3",

Just finished testing this. It works perfectly as a switched live as advertised. Thanks for all the advice and assistance. This source still has a 60 second lag to cut off and I was wondering if there were any switched lives on the F750GS that powered down immediately?

This will do for what I had in mind (powering a GPS and aux LED running lights) and I am waiting for the corresponding plug to arrive. It's a semi-permanent workaround to my dead ezCAN II which is currently on it's way back to Nippy Normans for a replacement, but I have no idea how long that will take before the new one appears. I have to say that I have been pretty unimpressed with NN's communication on this. They seemed less than happy to have to replace the ezCANII unit, even after I provided all the HEX Innovations ticket conversation as well as HEX Innovation's instruction to return it to NN's.

This looks to be an option. Has anyone tried it?

I've seen this, but in the end I used the number plate live wire.
