I have a 93 Aspencade, On the right side of the fairing, just below the right speaker is a spot that looks like it is intended for a cig lighter or aux power plug. Does anyone know is the bike pre-wired for something like that or will I have to run power from the battery. Thanks for your help.

Pics would help here a lot...

Of course, my first question is: Does this socket have power? If so... is this really an issue?

If I does not, trace the lines to power. Check for bad fuses and relays.

If you are just talking about a knock out plug... and you want to install a power lead... that is somewhat different.

Ahhh I walked over and took a look at my 96. NO... that hole is not pre-wired for power. You'll need to run a fused line to the accessory lead. That is located on the left... in one of the covered fuse boxes located there.

Okay... so I am being overtly glib...

IF... this bike is new to you... and you foresee adding various electrical components. Then you need one of these:

It allows you to wire in all sorts of things without disturbing the OEM electrical harness...

Thanks for your help, I do intend to install one of these connection plates but for now, I have a trip to MO coming up in a few days, and I just want to hook up a temporary power source for a GPS. Then later I plan to trace out all the goodies PO installed, and do things right. Just don't have the time right now. Would rather wait until after the riding season is done. Thanks again.

Nothing pre wired there, on the later SE models believe that was for the foot warmer control knob.

If running just a GPS, a quick wire up from aux. fuse location in fuse box to the left inside pocket where many of us have a cig or power receptacle kept out of the elements.
