Those are nice because of the sealing grommet.....I have those on my bike as well. Never a worry of the water getting into the socket. Boat stores are ideal for finding waterproof electricals and the stainless steel hardwear as well.
Good "tip" post.:thumbup:

Good choice. The Marinco sockets and plugs may be just a bit better at more cost. If you use anything that does not have a voltage reduction circuit in the plug, the matching West Marine plug makes it all quite weatherproof. (My radar detector and GPS both have voltage reduction in the plug, so I can't use the sealed plug that matches the socket.)

I have all of the voltage reduction in my tank bag. I just plug in the tank bag.
I have a Sirius radio (5 volts) Radar detector (12volts) and a small audio amp (12 volts) in the bag. I took apart the cig lighter plug for the Sirius and stole the voltage drop board out of it and then wired everything direct. The sirius antenna and detector are velcroed on top. This way, I can just slap on the magnetic bag, plug it in, insert earplug/speakers and ride. If I put the rain hat over the bag it is pretty stealthy.
I will post some pictures when I get it complete (I have only had this bike for 2 weeks)

West Marine outlets

Great choice......installed mine on my 08 Vee soon after purchase. Also used West fuse panel also available at West...with a relay.....switched for "on" position. Use for XM and GPS....no problems at all from install date
