  • Vest Ports

    Just put down my deposit and take ownership of a White Tour DCT next week. So regarding power ports for vests, battery tender, etc. Guess I'm going to have to drill thru fairings and wire to the battery just like on my '03 huh? I wonder if any of the white T-connectors are available somewhere to plug a Powerlet cord into. But if so, they're likely to not be hot, which means they'll work for a vest, but not a battery tender.

    I power a fused relay from the AUX fuse on the fuse block. (Relay trigger)
    I never touch the factory wire harness!.
    The relay only has power with the key on. Key off = No Power to the relay/power port.

      Thanks for that Rocky and I'm guessing since you're not splicing into the Canbus system it doesn't recognize a threat and doesn't shut down the system?

    Thanks, guess I'm back to drilling again. No factory installed power ports...... really? Using a relay though would negate being able to plug a battery tender into it. Some of these oversights are perplexing. Lack of storage cubbies, no ports, one helmet holder, etc.

      I use the BT supplied cord for the tender & powering my Slime air compressor (if I need to use the compressor when traveling)

        There is enough space in the side cover "vent" to allow the Battery Tender dongle to exit the cover. I will be showing in a new video soon. No need to drill for that.

            I'm no expert but I ran my tender/ heated jacket dongle along the frame and out in front of the side panel. Haven't had any problems and it's not in the way when I want to remove the side panel. They are a big enough pain in the butt to take off and put back on.
