    I had been looking to piece together something to add some aux power for phone and such to my Rally. Come to find out Honda added an accessory plug into the factory harness....so I splurged and got this. Mounts right under the display and has a couple switches in case I decide to add fog lights or heated grips later.

    I want something like that.

    I know my wife took advantage of the quad lock sale and got me all the stuff to mount my phone on the bike, and an additional one to convert my truck to quad lock.

    I want to add an additional plug to my bike, but i dont need something for gps because my bike has Apple car play already. So cant decide if I should add a 12v plug or a USB socket

    Go 12v SAE, then you can use it to charge the bike, heated gear, run a bike air compressor, or battery tender makes sae-usb dongles that are handy.

    This. Quad lock makes a very robust 8" lightning cable so you don't have to route 36" of cable. I went SAE and added this:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B093CY6887?smid=A1RID58DUOHMSN

    Which in my case is great cuz i have a 22 year old bike with no dash info. The battery monitor is awesome to have and it's awesome for the phone, very versatile.

    I have a lithium battery. And a built in USB on my dash area. I was talking about on the left side of the dash area, there is an OEM accessory socket option, but im not sure if i want a cig lighter plug there.

    I have way too much dash info haha. Actually have a built in code reader to tell me if there are any codes from the engine. Along with battery voltage, range, average mpg, etc. So many things!

    little storytime for you guys to shame me so i never make this mistake again.

    Got to work yesterday morning, promptly left after arriving to handle some work business, then came back. Like a dunce, I left my keys in the motorcycle in the ON position upon my return, and didn't realize until the very end of the day when I was looking for my keys and realized I couldn't find them. Walked out to a completely dead battery. Ended up having to buy a power pack from Napa Auto parts ($150!) just so I could jump it and get home.

    :facepalm:

    Now I'm wondering just how much of a scumbag I would be if I returned the power pack after charging it up.

    have done that plenty of times, but with tools and not electronics.

    Could you justify it for your truck or another vehicle though? if not, i wouldnt shame you

    Lol that's what hurt even more about having to buy it. I have a portable jump starter in my truck. So i definitely don't need this one unless i left it in my work office as a spare on the off chance it might die again...

    I've never done it before with any vehicle and didn't feel like trying it out on my bike lol. though after a buddy explained to me the process for a bike, it seems easy enough that I could have done so...next time lol

    Don't think anyone I know ever suffers with dead vehicle batteries lol so it would largely be a wasted Xmas present. Just me haha

    That’s what I was thinking.
    :notsure:



    Those things are usually pretty good as a charging pack for small electronics on long trips too so it could be useful if you know someone that travels a lot. I’d personally go that route rather than return. Or it could be your backup to leave at work just in case.

    But really if you returned it, it wouldn’t be the worst thing. It’s not like you abused it or are returning an item that isn’t what you purchased. I’ve gotten burned a few times with Amazon warehouse deals like that, but they’ve always taken care of it.

    That's fair, I was nervous my first time doing it. It's kind of a fun skill to have though, even when your battery isn't dead. I was at an offroad riding training three or four years ago and one of the instructors bumped his bike off the center stand while on it, casually dropped the clutch and bumped it alive and road off. It was so slick and cool looking :rofl: It was Sean Thomas' older brother.

    A bunch..and no build thread!
    I can't count how many times I've bump started a bike..lol. I had a 2004 GSXR 750 track bike that did not have a starter. Every time it was a bump start. usually by myself. Get a running start, in second, clutch pulled in, hop onto the bike and pop that bitch!

    Wheelie off into the sunset..usually unexpectedly..lol
