Switched accessory power connection

Where is a good place to pick up switched accessory power?
Adding a GPS and would like some switched power for it.

thanks - Duane

Check under the seat, there is space to hook up accessories under there.

Checked in the fuse box and didn't find anything ready for a fuse. There are empty fuse spots, but you would need the the terminals and all. I wish they would provide an easy way to add accessory with switched power. I'll check under the seat again for some place to pick up switched power. i know there are wires and such with switched power on them. I was just hoping for any easy hookup without having to splice into a wire.

If there is some place under the seat yo know of please let me know.

thanks - Duane

There is an unused plug under the seat, in the front towards the fuel tank. Did you check to see if it had switched power on it?

The only other place on the bike I can think of is behind the left hand radiator pod. Just below the fuel door latch key is a curious plastic blank plate. It looks like it could fit a 12v accessory outlet. I haven't popped off the plastic house too take a look though.

Something else I just thought of, there are 2 additional plugs for LED fog lights. They both should be switched and located under the front plastic engine housing.

Thanks for the thoughts.....I will do some digging this weekend and let you know where I pick up the switched power from. With the plugs in the lower cowl
I wonder if they only have power with the low beam headlight on? Might go out when
high beam turned on...not sure. Will check it out.

Again thanks.

I wish I had put a multimeter on them when I had the lower engine cowl off. I had a very difficult time installing a flas2pass on this bike. The fog light harness was an option but it did not trigger the flash2pass. Power was not interrupted when I hit the high beams.

Also in the fuse box is an accessory fuse but I wasn't able to trace where it went. You can use a vampire tap or one of those add a circuit fuse parasites. I did check it for power and it was switched.

Garage
I am looking to add a GPS to my bike. The unused capped connector under the seat is for a cigar lighter style socket, P/N 08U55-MCA-101, that can be installed in the hole in the storage compartment. $80 from Honda, $40 from E-Bay. The connector is fused at 10A (ACC). I am trying to research the P/N for the plug that fits into this connector so I can do a proper install on the GPS.
