Accessory power plug?

On the gen 1 FZ1 is there such a thing as an accessory power plug? Looking for a switched source to attach a USB power port to like I have on my other bike.

Nope.

But many people added their own. I just tapped into the running light lead to power a gps. Worked fine.

Thanks
That sounds simple enough. Not as easy as using the accessory socket on my other bike but good enough. I just need enough juice to run a GPS or my phone. I've got the other bike set up with a zumo gps with weatherpak connectors so I can transfer the entire thing from bike to bike, the other bike has a usb jack and a weatherpak hanging off the bottom.

Years ago I added a 12 volt power socket to the left inner cowl panel, fused for 5 amps, wired direct to battery. Runs GPS mainly, could power phone, and also there to plug in the air pump if needed. Since there's no quiescent current from a USB 5 volt converter, as long as I don't leave something plugged in I'm good. No issues so far.

The fuse block is under the seat. There's a line in there for the tail light. I ran the coil of a relay off that line, then passed a heavier wire from the battery + side through the switched leg of the relay, to a ganged fuse block and ground rail for my accessories. You can get the fuse block and screw-terminal strip at auto parts stores or Home Depot.

Here's my post on how I did it from a long time ago.

I have a Batter Tender lead coming off the battery and a USB port dongle to connect to it. Not switched, but not necessary for me.

I've got this one on my other bike, works great and since the bike didn't have a voltmeter it gives that function too. And yes 12v is really low for a running bike. Need to pull the stator cover and I'm betting that the magnets are loose - common issue.

They sell a version without the volt meter that I'll put on the FZ1 since it already has the multigauge of awesomeness on it

I have this one https://www.cyclegear.com/accessorie...-power-adapter

I like the fact that it has a battery tender style cord and is fused. I attached it to the battery and left the connection under the seat, right by the base of the tank, for easy plug access for the little compressor I carry. I paid $25, it appears to be on sale for $15 right now.

This is what I run. I don't use it often, but it works great and can be had for less than $20 plus shipping from Revzilla. Output is 5V/2.1A.
