Yes they're still working fine.  I run a cable from the USB charger into my tank bag to keep my phone charged.  The cigar socket on the right powers my GPS.  The right side mounting hole is larger because it's meant to be used with the optional gear indicator from Kawi.  I had to make a spacer in order for the power outlet to fit correctly.

The only problem is when it rains hard.  While you're riding at highway speed, it's ok because most of the rain water goes around and over the windshield - but if you stop in traffic or whatever, the whole dash gets wet and water will get into those sockets.  At that point, you have to unplug your stuff and put the covers in place.  I have thought about replacing the cigar outlet with a BMW-style power outlet because they fit a lot tighter and would be easier to waterproof. I'd have to make an adapter cable for my GPS though.
