Post by Wrooty93 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 4:54 pm

Hello everyone,

Im fairly new here and planning to to some tet riding next year. I was just wondering if theres anyone on here thats done some modifications on the ktm 450 excf? one of the first things I want to do it get some usb power on the bike for the sat nav and to charge my phone if needs be. I haven't a clue how to even start wiring up a usb to the bike so any help is appreciated.

thanks, sam.

Late reply, but here is my solution.

For my F700GS I ran some wire from the battery to the handlebars and soldered on a waterproof SAE connector that is "velcroed" in place on the clutch cable, next to my RAM mount. I bought one of those USB chargers on ebay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/292599691600?chn=ps) that has an SAE connector, so just connect it up when needed. The drawback is of course the usb charger draws power the whole time so you need to unplug it when not in use.
