USB Socket From Nippy Norman
« on: June 04, 2020, 11:52:44 am »


Fitted this yesterday - so easy and it looks just like OEM.

Should prevent problems I have had with adaptors falling out of the DIN socket..

Costs £35 including postage.

Hope this is helpful.

There would still be cables flapping around in the breeze rubbing against paintwork if you were charging a phone in your tank bag for example. I would rather have USB sockets near the tank and bars.
Its not always the destination that counts its the ride, having a destination just stops you going round in circles.

I have the optimate dual USB DIN one and it is plug and play.  Also useful in that I can route a long cable under the tank area into the headstock region for chargification of the phone/GPS/WAZE device.

A bit bulky.  Prefer the OEM one.

Yeah I did something similar on my old F800 if I remember correctly. At least I remember routing cables somewhere!
