Thumbs up K1200S Accessory Outlet Modification How-To

Well. rather than whine about the problem and/or go out and buy the BMW battery charger, yesterday me and my buddy Joe Seay (a fellow K1200S owner) ran a new wiring harness directly from the battery to the factory accessory socket on my new S. Wasn't as bad as I thought. The S is much easier to work on than the RS..Took about an hour and we are both as anal as Adrian Monk.

Joe made the custom harness himself (it looks factory) and is even considering making a few more if anyone is interested..

I have posted my own K1200S Accessory Outlet Modification How-To at http://piratesk12site.net/accessorymod.htm if anyone is interested. Not sure if anyone else has posted this procedure or not..

It shows an easy, inexpensive way to run a new harness directly from your battery to the power-lacking factory accessory socket.

Now my accessory socket is compatible with just about every aftermarket goodie on the market, including a Battery Tender, all vests, and an AutoSuck. Mongo happy.
Thx Joe.
