Anyone add a cigarette lighter/power outlet

Hey 700xx'rs,

I've found myself needing a power outlet (cigarette lighter socket) to my XX to charge my phone, gps, margarita machine, etc.

Wondered who out here has done it? I did it fairly easily to my 400ex, installed it under hood in front of steering stem. The 700 doesn't have to same room and my IMS tank limits me further.

I know we're all pretty creative out here, your ideas are appreciated.

Thanks all.

Ha yeah I don't need the outlet but an ashtray would be wicked. I'm always having to stop to put my smokes out on the tire. Just saying.

I too would like a 12v socket, but as you say - where?
The ones on the renegades have a plastic void which the lighter socket sits in to keep water and muck off the terminals.

Me 3, thats not a bad idea at all, considering I am usually the one who stays dry and is in charge of the gps when my group rides.

700xx Newbie!

I've started leaning toward under the seat. There it should be protected from water, debris, etc. Additionally, it would be super close to wire into the battery.

I can run power cable along frame to the bars for gps, phone, etc.
If I need to air up a tire (or fire up the blender) I could just pop the seat off.

Whatcha think?
