Power/accessory plug under saddle
« on: March 20, 2021, 09:57:11 PM »
Hi Guys,
Just got my 2021 850gsa last month and am trying to familiarize myself with the electrics of the bike. Not to actually know the wiring diagram. But I'd like a general idea of what plug does what.
I read somewhere that there are 1 or 2 accessory plugins under the saddle... I've been staring at and following cables around the battery and trunk, but I can't find anything that looks like a SAE or something that looks it's meant for plugging stuff into.

Anyone got any pointers or pics where I might find those plug(s)?

Only 1 accessory plug: underneath the instrument/tft
Safe kilometers (miles) to everyone

My 2019 850GS only had one connector on the left. I replaced it with a dual USB one to be able to charge my phone etc.
The newer 2021 models have something on both sides of the display don't they?  one USB and one "normal" accessory plug.

Maybe I should take a drill bit and make a hole on the right side :) install another accessory plug there.

nothing on the right on my 2021 well not from factory it now has a dual usb there and the left has been replaced with a normal cigaret lither socket not the stupid din plug that seems to warrant 3 times the price for anything that uses that.
