Typical Powerlet quality
This version requires some self assembly to make the wiring harness back to the battery, but you end up with a custom install instead of having to hide left over wire from a longer harness. If you have the tools, wire, fuse holder and terminals, this is the way to go.

Fits the CRF1000L - With some effort
Seems like it will do the job. Only disappointment was that there is no rubber ring around the lid to seal against rain, just a raised lip

Africa Twin fitment info below.

The mounting hole for the stock Africa Twin 12v cigarette lighter is quite a bit larger than the outer diameter of the Powerlet, but with a bit of effort it can be installed without an extra trip to the parts store.

Pop the stock rubber hole plug out, take the small metal bushing off of the Powerlet (the silver one) and center it over the top of the plug. Using it as a template, trace a ring on the rubber with a pen. Get a fresh Xacto knife with a narrow blade. A narrow blade will minimize drag on the rubber, and allow you to make a tighter turn in the cut. Carefully cut a hole out of the center of the plug. I found it worked best by plunging the knife through to the opposite side, then holding the knife still and applying slow and even pressure to the plug, twisting it to follow the line.

Test the fit. If you have to push it on with difficulty carefully widen the diameter of the hole. It should be snug, but go on fairly easy. Install the newly fashioned rubber ring into the panel on the motorcycle. Feed the wires through then gently press the threaded barrel of the Powerlet through the ring. You might need to apply pressure with your fingers from the back of the panel to keep the ring from rolling out of the hole. Don't worry if you can't get the last few threads flush as the nut will pull it the rest of the way through when you tighten.

Complete the install as normal.

Powerlet rocks!
Install was a breeze. I replaced the cheesy power outlet on my Super Tenere with this. Much better with more power for a compressor, my heated clothing and I run my battery tender through it as we'll. No need for separate cords running to the battery when this will work.

Nice quality
Bought this to plug in a heated jacket. The quality is great, seems like it will last a long while. Has a factory quality look once installed.

Does the job every time!
I’ve installed the Powerlet low profile outlet on several of my bikes and have had consistent outstanding performance. I suppose ease of installation is a subjective category because drilling a large hole in a panel of a $28,000 motorcycle is not to be taken lightly, at least not by me. A good deal of pre-planning is the key to success with this installation. If you do it right you’ll be rewarded with years of excellent service.

Cleans up the power acces for clothes

power at your fingertips
The installation of this product could have not been easier. I installed two of these power outlets with stitches in three of my fingers and a splint on the other hand. So yes it was easy and I could put them where I needed them.

Any hints as to how to stop the barrel from turning when righting the nut to secure the socket in a panel?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As I recall here's what I did.. Use a small amount of blue Loctite on, then hold the body with your hand and tighten as much as you can without overstressing the piece. Let the Loctite dry overnight. So far the nut has not come loose.
Im buying a wireless powerlet Rapidfire jacket liner. I want to mount a power receptacle on the bike will this work with the power intake on the liner?
A S on Feb 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I do not use their jacket or gloves, but based on their web site it says the jacket plugs right into their jacks.
I have an old "warming belt" from another company, and I share the advice given at the link I mentioned above, that it's very important to use a temperature controller. If no controller, you'll be going from too cold to too hot and back, constantly turning the switch on and off. Controllers work wonderfully to set anywhere in between. Once you get hot, you sweat, then it's so much easier to become cold. I prefer to just have a little heat, but constant, just to keep the chill off.
With that said, electronic controllers shut off if power is removed, so make sure your jack is wired to the battery using the included fused harness, NOT switched by the ignition key. This is my preference, yours may vary. So if I stop for a minute, heat does not shut off, I.e. You won't have to rest the controller each time you start your bike, unless you get off and unplug of course. And you don't have to run the machine to have heat. At only 60 or less watts (it's much less when you run on lower settings, more like 12-15 watts) you will not drain your battery significantly over a many minutes of time. But don't forget your jack is live and leave things plugged in for a long time ;<)
I figure 10-15 watts continuous is where I run, that's only 1 amp drawn from a 6 amp-hour battery, so I can run an hour or two if needed with the engine off and still start the bike/snowmobile.

My use is snowmobiling, and it's wonderful to have when it's 30 below zero.

Will this device install easily on my Yamaha FZ8?
Doug S on Apr 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Doug,
It's a universal powerlet outlet and it can be installed on any bike. I installed mine on the dash board of my F800GS, which is fitted with a Britannia Composites windshield which incidentally comes with a dash board. From there I added about 2 feet of wires to connect it directly to the battery. You can attach it anywhere you please, all you have to do is make a bracket from a flat sheet metal as your socket holder, or just drill a hole in any flat plastic part of your bike. The nice thing about powerlet plugs is that they can really withstand vibrations from the bike, unlike the regular cigarette lighter plugs.
Hope this helps,
Edward

Is this the Powerlet Low Profile socket a BMW type socket
A shopper on Apr 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This is a BMW type socket, I used it on my K1200LT, however with the boot installed it will be deeper than the BMW OEM configuration. The connector for this brings the wires straight in to the connector, on the OEM connection it is a 90 degree angle. The connector is also larger than the BMW OEM connector.

On my LT this was not a problem since there was enough room for all this behind the fairing, however on my R1200C where more of the bike is exposed I am not sure that the connector would work. I would probably opt to solder the wires directly to the leads on the socket and then put a radio shack connecter upstream or something like that.
