CBF 600 - Installing a charger/heated grips?
 
Hi everyone,

I just ordered a USB charger for my 600SA (PC43) and I'm looking for instructions on how to install it.

Heated grips installation instructions would do as well, I presume it's the same thing essentially. I need it to get power when the ignition switch (red) is in the "run position" and the key is in the ignition position too. Can someone please point me to a web site or docs that explains it?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Soneone just said the front brake switch :) ..but I get the idea now.

I'm wondering where to buy something like this in Dublin (physical shop):

Wire a solenoid to the battery and power it's trigger from the number plate light (if you only want power when the ignition is on). You'll get a solenoid in any motor factors.

I *think* you may mean a 12v relay, not a solenoid.

Ya could use a feed from fuse box. Ie the side of the least important fuse that's dead if fuse is removed . Have you a multimeter?

Thank you. Yes, I do have one. BTW, is there anything wrong with just connecting it to the front brake 12V?

Well ya could do it ... safety wise it Depends what else is on the fuse alocated to front brake . If going that route find a fuse in the box that is not critical should you blow a fuse and tap into the "after fuse" side of that

You are correct (the solenoid is part of a relay)

Rather than one dedicated wire per device, I usually wire in a mini fuse box with dedicated outputs that can have different size fuses, this of course, will only be live when the ignition is on,meaning you can power several devices, heated grips/Sat N-AV/Coffee maker (Option only available to BMW's)/Heated clothing etc. it also makes the whole wiring a lot tidier and easier to isolate faults.

Nice suggestion, thanks!

Use a relay as explained above to avoid overloading any exisitng circuits. Relay takes an in line fused power supply direct from positive of battery and is energised by an ignition on only power feed from say the number plate light or brake light switch. Output terminal to your accessory, earthed to main earth. All as per above post.

Thank you, I'll look into this option too.
