Powerlet adapter

Getting ready for a 4500 mile road trip week after next.

Can anyone help me with which Powerlet adapter kit that I need to install in the spare spot (next to the CanBUS stock outlet) on the left side of the bike? I'd like to go with an inline fused version, straight to the battery, to keep it simple and make charging easier. I've searched for "Powerlet" on the NextGen forum without much luck but it seems like I've seen the info somewhere here in the past.

I think that this is it but I'm not quite sure and have waited too late to order the wrong thing.


Can I get this from BMW part or do I purchase it directly from Powerletproducts.com?

Thanks so much in advance!

The Powerlet part in your link (PKT-042-36) is the correct part. I contacted Powerlet directly when I was planning to install this on my 2008, and they verified it. I installed the kit without a problem.

No doubt the Pashnit setup in a 36 inch length would work as well.

If you want to do the job "right", I would remove the gas tank and run the wiring along with the stock harness. It is a bit more work, but I wanted it to look as "factory" as possible.

If you ever have any questions, contact the Powerlet folks directly. They are a wealth of information and very helpful. I just had them make a custom-length cable for me, and they didn't even charge me any more than the "off the shelf" lengths... Recommended!
