Question about accessory plug
« on: 14 August, 2011, 04:12:58 PM »
What exactly fits into the Triumph accessory plug under the seat? By that I mean once you unwrap the wiring connector, attach it to the plug and then bolt the plug it to the frame what accessorys fit that plug?  I'm sure there is a answer to this question somewhere on this board but I can't seem to find it.

It is a "female" John Deere" DC plug--some call it a BMW plug.  I use it for my battery tender, radar detector, and a couple of other things.  I am not sure if any of the heated clothing come with that plug as I have none; however, for those things listed above, I ordered "male" John Deere" DC plugs from here:

"John Deere"! That's freaking funny as I drive a 4X4 JD at work pulling a 20' mowing deck and I've been looking at that funny little power outlet in the tractor for the last 6 years wondering what it was for. Know I know and thanks for the heads up.

My GPS is hooked up via the Triumph power cable under the wind screen and my electric vest (Tourmaster) is direct to the battery.

Some have found that a John Deere dealer sells the plugs for a lot less than the motorcycle outlet retailers... :001:...so, if you have a John Deere dealer nearby, give them a try.

I got mine from an electronics supply place (one of the many plugs and sockets they sell).

 :188: there's an accessory plug under the seat? I must have missed that in the manual  :006: Where abouts would it be found? ( I know, under the seat!!!) :001:

Not quite. There's a connector taped to the wiring loom, under the tank, which is meant to plug into an accessory socket, which you have to buy.

Easy to find for me. Took a light and a mech's magnifying glass ( Mirror on a stick) looked behind the endine up toward the fuel tank in the wiring harness and ID'd it. Used my wifes long thin fingers with with her gerber sharp nails to udo the blue tape then simply bolted the plug in place and attched the connector.
