Unhappy F6B can we put the 12 volt in left side pocket?

had this on my 2006 wing but seems that I cannot put a cig lighter, or usb charger in that left pocket, with the connector underneath when you remove the pocket? I see in manual i can put a 3.5 mm aux there...which is good but where is the 12 volt? Any alternatives? thanks!

I would assume that you could do it, but do not know for sure as I never messed with one. I wouldn't think the wiring would be THAT much different.

You could always run a fused wire direct from the battery thru the tupperware then just hit a ground anywhere.

Yeah I and just lazy, a guy at the parts store said it looked like it had the same wiring behind that pocket, I'll dig in there when I get it. Oh well, she's getting delivered soon can't wait! Thanks

This time you are going to direct wire an outlet to the battery with the appropriate gauge wires that are designed for an inline 30 amp. fuse so you can run your compressor off it.

Do you have an F6B? Or a Goldwing GL 1800 full dress? I know all the full dressers have it, but I have not got confirmation from any F6B owner that that connector is in there for the 12 volt, not that you can hook up a compressor to it as you will blow a fuse! LOL Chopin

It is a GL full dress.... the PO actually put on 4 power ports: two in the front left pocket, one in a passenger pocket on a pull out cord, and one in the trunk on a coiled cord (kind of like the old phones) and they have all been wired to a separate fuse panel.
My suggestion, park your F6B next to a GL and compare the front fairings.....dont think there is any real difference other than the windshield.

I added a 12Volt outlet in the left pocket of our 2006 GW1800 Motortrike. I bought the outlet with the proper end from Wingstuff. Behind the left pocket is a 12V plug making this a plug and play addition. Took 30 minutes start to finish.
