Greetings,

I've been thinking of getting an iPod MP3 player for use on my wing. They come with an adaptor to plug into a power plug. Does a wing have a power plug for accessories?

Thanks in advance for your help

Honda and Electrical Connection make one for the front left pocket and the trunk.

I have Honda's in the front left pocket and I picked one up from EC (Electrical Connection) at the 2002 Wing Ding for my trunk.

Power plug

Under left fairing top pocket. I used the 3 prong to run my volt meter.
There's another conn. up under the right front speaker. (Very short cable on that one.)

Both should power your player.

PS: If you need the mate's to these connectors, you can get them from
Venco Wings.

I bought the Carlyn #205802 marine 12v power outlet for about $3 a couple of years ago, you have to do it yourself on the wiring, but that's no big deal. The one I'm talking about is in the bottom photo on this page.

this the same power plug electrical connection sells? The cord looks very short,is it still easy to remove the fairing pocket with such a short cord? Seems like a little longer cord might have been nice.
Yes it is from Electical Connection...I have it and it works great ....no its not to short.

Aux power plug - word of caution

If you plug the honda or ec outlet into the aux harness provided and intend to use it for powering an audio device, it's likely that you will also need an audio line ground loop isolator.

I am using an EC 12 volt accessory outlet in my left pocket to power a converter for my GPS. How have others routed the lead wire from the accessory plug to the GPS (or other device) without crimping the wire under the pocket door when it is closed? It would see that over time the wires would be damaged or the door itself become stressed by the process.

I am considering creating a small wire size slot in the lower edge of the pocket to make this easier.

I solved the wire crimping problem with a Dremel Tool. Just carve out a wire size slot in the fairing pocket along the gasket rib.

Mp3

Like the others ,I put one in the Trunk.I got one for the fearing pocket,but my sony uses 2AA's and they last a long time.Three weeks and same cells.But I will get around to puttin one in the front too.The Honda wires for their plugs are very short,that's where they cut the corners.I can't believe how short the wires are.If you use their plugs its ok,but I cut them off and you aint got much left. Just be aware of it.

Thanks for the tip on cutting the slot. I was hoping for another solution but that looks like the best way to go.

I also have the EC plug in the left fairing pocket for the XM radio power. Once you get it plugged in, there is still plenty of wire length to remove the pocket. I did have to "re-solder" the center rivet as there was NO power at first. Still a worthwhile and recommended accessory.
