fitted genuine kawasaki power take off plug
« on: July 06, 2018, 04:30:10 PM »
just fitted a power take off plug ..watched the video on u tube and thought well it all looks straight forward .. got under the front of the fairing with a long screw drive & unscrewed the blanking plate . next fitted power pug into the hole & tightened it up [ all 15 minutes max ] ….THEN … came to connect the two bullet connectors ...I was still at it two hours later   :125: ..the space was just so tight to get into & I couldn't get in a position to put pressure on to snap them together.. and no room to get pliers in ...but in the end & with another pair of hands I managed it . saved me the £105 fitting my dealer wanted .

 Mother Kawa has always left barely enough cable on accessory leads...Maybe there's a shortage (no pun intended) of cable on the production line

At least you've got it sorted and your wallet hasn't been lightened by your friendly dealer, you may have lost some skin off your knuckles though  :008:

Glad to hear someone else struggled.
I did the same but removed the fairing and screen plus anything else that I thought required moving.
Easy job the power socket done so put everything back-did this 3 times each time ending up with 2 bolts spare.
Eventually worked out where they were from under the screen.
Oh well we live and learn.

For what Kawasaki charges for the cigarette socket, it ought to come with the male plug too and a GPS on the end of that. The socket can be bought on Ebay for 2 bucks.

Would you happen to have a link to that?

I bought the one for the Kawasaki Vulcan
It's $21.95 on EBay and it comes with several other brackets that I just threw in the trash.  Plug and play.

Google this:
Kawasaki 12 Volt Power Socket For Vulcan "S" 15-17 99994-0541

Here's an Amazon link for just a bit more $$$
https://www.amazon.com/Kawasaki-Power-Socket-Vulcan-99994-0541/dp/B0178GZJ7W
.
.
It fits perfectly and the connections are the exact same
.
.
No matter where you go, there you are.
