Another minor irritant with the power outlet is that it only works when the ignition is on. So if I wanted to use it to power something briefly without the engine running, I now have additional battery drain from headlight, tail lights, ignition, fuel pump, etc.
I added a direct battery harness to plug my Battery Tender charger, electrically heated jacket liner and gloves, and tire pump into. So I never use the outlet in the glovebox.
I found a plug off an old car-vac that fit the space... so I replaced the one on the power cord for my GPS... so it can use the glovebox outlet.
But it's a good idea to install one under the seat. I did ...and wired direct to the battery. Great for charging stuff....
The solution I used was simply to get a 12-volt socket 'Y' adadapter with six inch lead cables (See picture below). This not only allows me to "aim" the socket so I can plug in a device, but it also gives me a second outlet at the same time.
Solved the problem by installing a BMW-type accessory outlet (with snap-up cover) outside on the dash, positioned above the glove box outlet. Had to drill, of course. Hooked it to the leads that feed the impossible outlet. BUT added a quick-disconnect between the socket and the rear of the impossible outlet, for ease of dashboard removal. Next to the new accessory outlet is a double-throw (Hi-Low) switch for my Hot Grips, wired (also fused) to the battery. Budd Blume
Looking forward to more posts... I've got a Blue Burger 400 and happy as you know what with it... at 5'1" too short...for the bigger one.. and you know what? WHO CARES... as the shirt says 4 wheels move the body... 2 move the spirit... ya'll drive safely out there...! :lol:
This post is in the wrong forum. It is a model-specific post. Which Burgman are you riding? I suspect the 650, because it has much less room in the glove box than the 400, and the outlet on the 650 is closer to the glove box door.
On my AN400, I have had no problem plugging cell phone chargers into the outlet and closing the door. Plenty of space.
I am thinking about buying a dtc special tool for my 650 (15) I have an abs light and looking at the shop manual the dtc reader is supposed to give me the information to make it easier to troubleshoot.
I like having my toys, but I don't like buying a toy I will only use once in a lifetime...
Ladies and Gents,
It's been a while since I have been "up in here."
Looking for some Scooter advice. About a year ago, a friend at work rode up on a Honda Rebel 250. And a flood of memories came back to me, and I fell in love all over again. When I was about 13 years old, my dad came home...
For those of you that haven't seen the Prime program "Slow Ride Home", you might enjoy seeing an epic adventure. It brought back memories of some of my past rides. The big difference, my rides weren't at 40 miles per hour. Great fun!
Is Burgman no longer making the 650 executive?
im coming off of a gold wing, and I’m looking for a nice scooter, But with my height and body weight I need at least a 400 to a 650. Started looking for scooters this year. Was surprised to see that the 650 wasn’t listed as a renewed scooter...
