I did some searching and cannot really find what I am looking for. My 2012 GSX-R 750 came with a quick adapter already connected to the battery to plug in a trickle charger or to wire a power outlet as I was told by the dealer. I want to find a power outlet that I can install that has the quick connector end so I can plug it in only when I need it rather than leaving it wired directly to the battery all the time.. Has anyone come across one like that?

If you are referring to a 2-prong SAE adapter, they are pretty common. Most auto parts stores, bike shops and battery stores (like Batteries Plus) should have them in stock.

Is this what you are talking about? http://www.batteriesplus.com/produc...s-for-12V-Battery-Tender-DBT081--0069--6.aspx

Not sure I follow. Are you looking to have something like a cigarette outlet, or usb type outlet that you can plug into the already installed quick adapter? If so, can't you just find the other side of the quick adapter plug and wire up your own outlet to it.

ya, can't remember where I got it, sae plug to cigar lighter(12v outlet) adaptor,

I have my sae pigtail always connected to the battery (capped when unused) to quick connect a battery tender, I found the sae -12v adaptor online somewhere that had several electric adaptors, I also have a sae to gerbings coaxial, I have a coaxial pigtail for my gerbings, but with the adaptor, I can hook up a pillon with heat as well

I used the cigar lighter outlet to power my 12v airpump, cell phone charger, etc.

no need to mount a permanent power outlet, I've even seen sae - double 12v outlets adaptors

if I find the link, I'll post it, but it was several years ago, site may no longer exist



not where I got it, but similar or same

Amazon has a bunch of the SAE connector accessories.

An independant auto parts store near me had a whole display rack of various and sundry adaptor ends for those.

I got a cig lighter male plug to go between the charger and the factory plug on the beemer.
Wasn't too very expensive either. Under $10 if I remember correctly.

Nah just a basic 12V cigarette outlet so that I can plug in the GPS I just ordered. I got a nice mount for the GPS. Just have to figure out a good place to mount the outlet so it is accessible and sturdy. I will look over the bike when I get home and figure something out.

You don't get out much, do you? Here's one example:
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/ac...rByKeyWord=12v+power+outlet&fromString=search

S/b easy to find in many auto parts stores or departments.
It doesnt include the SAE adapter though. I ultimately may end up picking up something like this and just splicing the adapter off the other one I ordered so i have the waterproof housing and the correct adapter and then I can just mount it. For those who keep it in their trunk, doesnt the wire get annoying not being buried? That is the main reason I wanted to mount it so there wasnt a long wire just hanging there.

I have one of these that I use to power a Garmin NUVI: http://batterytender.com/accessories/female-cigarette-adapter.html

But I also bought one of those USB adapters. Here's my post with some pics: http://www.svrider.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2545025&postcount=262

Can get a gen-u-ine battery tender pigtail connector to go on the battery.
Comes with it's own dedicated fuse and costs around $7.
I've run it to the trunk and zip tied it to the frame just under the lock.
No flopping about involved.

If you like, you can run it up under the tank toward the ignition.
won't reach all the way, but along with the lighter adaptor and routing, that should be all that's needed.

The adapter I have came zip tied to right under the seat for easy access. So I have two options. I can leave the outlet in the trunk and plug it in when I need it. If I do that, I would have wires just hanging from the seat up to the GPS. I would tighten them up so there was no slack obviously but still it would be unsightly and probably annoying. My other option is to run the outlet up front, hide the wires and actually attach the outlet there. If I do that, i likely need to mod the bike and I would definitely have to get a waterproof one. I have one on the way that is not waterproof but I could buy one that is at a local auto or marine store and splice in the SAE connector. I am just not sure what I want to do.



Here's the power outlet I added on my SV mainly to run my compressor. Parts were from Eastern Beaver.

I also use this for connecting my battery trickle charger in winter.

That looks really nice! Unfortunately, if I did that, I still would have the wire hanging from the GPS to the outlet. If I didnt, I would really love the placement.
