Are you looking for the male/female plug to match the stock one under the seat?

Wouldn't it be simpler to just find a two terminal generic plug and replace that OEM Honda plug with it? Although it's possible (maybe) to find an OEM style terminal to use, it's likely you would have to buy the Honda OEM cigarette style plug for the storage compartment and simply cut the end off it.

I searched Ebay using "2 Pin Way Waterproof Terminals Car Electrical Wire Connector Plug" and found a set of five pairs (5 male, 5 female) for $6.55 shipped from California. Those are the same OEM style waterproof plugs used commonly under hood in modern vehicles.

10amp is a decent amount of power. That should run a GPS without any trouble.

I found the connector here, http://www.corsa-technic.com/item.php?item_id=334, and am installing an additional 4 slot fuse block. This accessory output is wired to two fuse positions on the block, which will be used for GPS (3A) and CB (5A). I am mounting this on the forward wall of the storage compartment. I have it all wired, but not mounted on the wall yet. Sorry, no pictures yet, it started raining and cut my work short.

I am interested in your set up as well since I just added a radio from shark audio and have the amp mounted in there as well.

Accessory 12V Box and Pathfinder LED Fog Lights

I dropped the 4-fuse box and went with a Neutrino Black Box, this gives me a cleaner install and more options. I have installed the Pathfinder LED Fog Light Kit, and have the DRLs from the fog lights connected to the Black Box. Using the box I set to DRLs to turn off 5 minutes after the bike is shut off. I am also running the GPS and CB via the box. I am planning on beginning the build for the 5V switch network to drive the turn signals in the DRLs. A lighting kit is also in the works. Of course, a bike is never finished...

LOL it is 4 speakers. And you are probably right about the gas.

I got the LEDs Control Box built, took about four revisions to get the circuit to do what I wanted (especially since I kept adding things):

1) Optically isolated from 5V turn indicator signals.
2) Drives the LED Pathfinder 12V turn indicators from the Valkyrie 5V turn indicator signal((s).
3) Drives 12V LED turn indicators on mirrors (mirror face and back of mirror) from 5V signal(s).
4) Drives 12V LED turn indicators on license plate frame from 5V signal(s).
5) Drives LEDs in shark gills to be half-bright but flash full-bright/half-bright from 5V turn indicator signal(s).
6) Good output capacity (8A ON/OFF channel, 2A Half/Full channel).

Of course, I am thinking about revision 5, where the gills stay on full-bright, but flash full-bright/off with 5V turn indicator signal(s). It uses opto-isolators, high-side drivers, an independent 5V power supply, an independent current supply for the half-bright supply, and a few resistors, capacitors and diodes.
