After looking thru the selection of topics here in the "Electronic Stuff" I did not see anything about adding a power outlet.
Maybe it is as easy as pie, maybe it is because I was a Marine and I had a picture of a rock as my I.D. card. I would really like to add a power outlet to my WR250R to run future accessories. Phone charger, air pump. What do I do? Come off the positive terminal (cabel size?) to an inline fuse (rating?) and go to the outlet from there? I know it is a simple addition but I dont want to go into it blind.

Most bikes have an "accessories" set of plugs behind the headlight mask.... check you owners manual...
if not, you can either run wire from your battery or splice into a line... options are for you... Not a difficult project at all... just make sure you have a fuse in the line and you may even want to conside a weather-proof on/off switch, just to make sure you're not running the battery down with it being 'hot" all the time.... Most of us have hardwired our GPS into the electrical systmes already and don't use an outlet...but it would come in handy to keep those cell phones powered up! __________________ The Honorable Mayor of Swampyville '10 Triumph Tiger 1050 '09 KTM690R '07 Kawasaki KLX250 (Mrs Swampy's bike) '03 Triumph Speed Triple '02 Honda CR250R tagged
