I'm going to use the wires at the front N/S (which I believe are switched via the ignition key), to power a relay so I have a switched supply to power a Centech distribution board which will be wired directly to the battery. A much better system, that will take a greater load than a normal socket. I previously used this system on my BMW that was Canbus and didn't like being overloaded.

12v socket arrived today. No replacement panel, just a bog standard 12v socket which you can buy on the internet for a fiver. Mr Kawasaki will be getting it back tomorrow....not paying £78.95 for that. :827: :005:

What do you mean exactly by replacement panel?
I got the Kawasaki one for the 2017 SX, all you do is unscrew the blank plate in the left dash area,screw in the socket in it's place and wire it in using the nearby bullet connectors under the dash. No cutting required. Do you have the 2017 or another model year? May be different between models I guess..

Couldn't find a pic of the socket by itself, but this is what it looks like installed... http://storage.kawasaki.eu/public/kawasaki.eu/en-EU/accessories/999940485.jpg

This is what ive used peeps, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Useful-12V-24V-Waterproof-Power-Socket-Car-Motorcycle-Cigarette-Lighter-Plug-UK-/142426672403?epid=510342248&hash=item21294a8d13:g:XmAAAOSwLsBZUMEj
I refuse to pay nearly eighty squids for the exact same thing from a Kawa dealer, no bloody way.

Sent the Kawa socket back for a refund and bought one from ebay. Anyone know how the panel comes off (2017 model)? It looks like a one piece panel that goes from the left side to right under the clocks, so I'm assuming I need to remove all 6 x allen bolts, but there seems to be 2 other plastic retainers, one on each side that need to be removed. How do they come out?

Remove the N/S top fairing panel. Then remove the allan bolt above and to the right of the blank where the socket will go. Gently pull the dash panel forward until you can get a philips screwdriver in through the gap in the fairing from the front. Unscrew the self tapper and the blank will fall out. :028:
