Since most common electronics these days come with a power charger that can be used in a car, having a standard cigarette-type socket on your bike can be pretty handy for powering a cell phone, radar detector, or GPS receiver. (Note that it is not current-rated for cigarette lighters, however.) Includes a tethered dust cap
Installation will require your choosing a panel location that has sufficient room behind it for the socket body and wires, drilling an 1-1/8 inch hole, inserting and securing the socket, and connecting the 8-inch pigtail to an suitable wire in your electrical system. A Powerlet T-connector will give you a dependable quick-disconnect fitting. For a drilling an accurate hole, we recommend using a step drill, a cone-shaped drill bit with a series of "steps" for drilling progressively larger holes. The end result will be a very clean, factory-installed look.
Or, if you'd rather not put a hole in your bodywork, you could mount a bracket on your handlebars to hold the unit.
If you'd prefer to power a cigarette socket directly from your battery, check out product code ATK1, which includes a 48-inch fused wire harness.
