    Zumo Powerlead with Canbus Fitment Q

    Hi there,

    I have purchased a Zumo 550;and a extra power lead from Motorrad Concepts with the Canbus connector.

    Q. where does it plug into - thought it was the Power socket until I got the lead and offered it up - too short and wrong type . So anyone else fitted it on the R12GSA???

    Thanks

    Hiya J

    Between the headstock and the front edge of the top of the tank cover to the the left of the top of the front shock
    There is a wee socket tucked in amongst the wiring loom, it may have a blanking cover on it.

    Cheers Pal,

    Did not even think of hoping back on to their website for a look. I had all the panels off looking for something to plug it into and it was right under my nose hiding under a blanking plate!!

    Cheers

    Zumo Power lead

    Hi Python, I was checking out the little socket on the loom. The cover on it is a bugger to get of. I had to stick a small screwdriver in to the side of it to release it. I thought the cable was a bit expensive ( near £40 ) for all it is. Think i will wire mine direct to the battery. OBisss

    I did, but I might undo it because as son as you insert the Zumo into the craddle she powers up. A bit like hot-wiring accessories to a PC. Not sure whether this was related but I had my Zumo for a week before it gave up the ghost - wouldn't power up anymore not even via the mains, USB or the car craddle. The nice people at MNC sent me a new one within a week.

    I learn something every day!

    Just been to have a look at mine. Which bit of the cover comes off? Is it just the top flat bit of the cover? Or the whole black cup-shaped bit?

    Thanks,
    Robin.
    I'm tired of giving a reason when the future is what we believe in.

    The whole black cup-shaped bit. It helps if you cut the tape which holds it to the headstock
