I put one on the back for the passenger heated clothes as the side is to far forward. I added a cig lighter size socket to the front clutch side on the grey panel and i've seen the smaller ones mounted up there also.

I also have a powered tank bag which has a powered outlet on it as well.

Ride Safe!

That's weird. Both my upper sockets are factory installed (the green-colored square above has a factory socket too).

I added the Powerlet socket (direct from battery with a 15 amp fuse) to the bottom (red-colored square) which also takes the Battery Tender without the Can-Bus confusion - nor the electric clothing getting only lukewarm. Can-Bus on electric clothing accessory outlets has to be one of their dumber ideas, imho.

I was thinking of putting one up near the bars, without drilling the plastic, and power the tank bag.

Tommy - they are knock outs - there is no drilling.

Since the battery is right up front under the panel I took a cig plug from wallyworld, $5.88 and added an inline fuse.

It has an L bracket that I use heavy duty double face automotive molding tape to mount it to the top of the battery. I only use it for my Garmin/XM so it an excelleant spot to coil up all that extra wire and keep everthing out of sight. no holes no canbus.

The panel is easy to remove on the road incase I need to use a 12v tire filler upper.
