Not much time you just mount it to the handlebars route the wires under the gas tank.
Fine the factory plug.
The hardest part was making the plug to fit but it was really easy. If you get the right pins.

USB charging port (alternative)

Hi guys

This is not the same thing - the original post was about a "cigarette lighter" style of port.
I just wanted to throw out this alternative option that I've been very happy with in case it helps anyone:

I went with a dual port USB adapter so I could keep my phone charged while riding long trips.
I bought mine from KiWAV and it has been great so far (3 months)

Just shy of $30 and installation wasn't too bad. I drilled a hole in the left side plastics to mount (instead of using the handlebar mount it comes with), ran the wires back through to an accessory wire under the seat. I ended up splicing the wire in because this is just a bare wire, it doesn't come with any quick connect plugs. Alternatively you could wire straight to the battery.

I opted for this model because it was one of the few I could find that was 2 amp (faster charging).

Just an option

I like that you utilized the "Real estate" available in the bike, but then, but I'm not a fan of drilling holes on it either,I may go for something similar, but maybe on the handlebar! thanks for the explanation and the pics.

These units have multiple iterations on eBay and Amazon, and all are cheap, so even if they fail can be easily replaced. My mechanical abilities are limited but even I found it simple to install and connect to the battery, aside from the PITA of having to remove the seat to access the rear terminal. Just make sure there's enough length of wire to reach to your mounting spot and that it remains adequate as you turn the bars. Mine just barely reaches.

Get yourself a coat hanger and undo it into a straight wire, tie the power cord to it, and run it under the tank and then zip tie the cord to the frame once you connect it to the battery.

One of the easier installations I've done on this bike. If I can do it, anyone can!
