I have my BMW connection up front, between the handle bars and gauges.
The quality of the connector and wire are good.
The length works well for me. I leave it plugged into power, with Velcro on the side of the engine that holds the coax end. So, when I mount my bike, I have the power available for my heated clothes, right there. I can dismount the bike, and reach my rear connected tail case, without disconnecting. I really like that part of that, when I forget something in my tail box, or side panniers.
I really like the length, without too much that makes it a tangled wire rats nest.

It doesn't work
I finally broke down this year and purchased a electric jacket liner. I purchased this connector so I could power my portable heat-troller and 90 watt jacket. All of this stuff is from first gear. So last Friday I hopped on the my R1200GSW and was riding to breakfast. I had a green light on the controller, but no warmth in the jacket at all. According to the heat-troller instructions, a yellow light indicates that the polarity has been reversed.
Also the instructions mention that you should never use a BMW power port on a CAN BUS system. So, I'm a little confused why they sell this item. Perhaps its for those older, pre-CAN BUS bikes.
I'd send it back, but I trashed the package it came in. Oh well, I'll maybe cut off the end and use it for something else.

Used on Ducati Multistrada
I bought this BMW classified Powerlet for my Ducati as I couldn't find a list for Ducati Multistrada. This adapter works and has a nice long cord to reach for the passenger outlet. The only problem was that when trying to plug into the driver Powerlet socket this BMW adapter rubs against the Multistrada center-stand lift handle. For this reason I found that there was a 90 degree angled Powerlet plug and am now using that for driver side outlet.

Links my first gear heated Jacket Liner to my recently installed aux outlet on my 1200gs. No problems.
