Hi dudes, looking to fit a USB socket and thought I'd use the auxiliary dc connector as mentioned in the manual. Do any of you fine fellows know where the thing is? I've had a good rummage around and either it isn't there or I'm using what my wife calls "mans eyes". Cheers all

It's hidden behind the left plastic cover underneath the tank. IIRC it's a female plug, plugged on a male "dummy" plug, that you could actually re-use provided you have the metal connectors that fit in. Otherwise you can find them or the whole plug on ebay, it's the same as on the MT07.

Let me know if you have trouble, I'll try to be more specific at home where I could check my ebay history and past pictures. I used mine to plug my heated grips (I had to change the fuse).

Cheers guys, just spent an hour in the garage. Found it rather quickly thanks to your help. Thank you to Rossz too for the link, I've just ordered 2 in case I **** it up.

That's fab, I can get a USB port on the bars now and it's no more flat phone half way through a trip while using it for Tom Tom. I've no natural compass and spend a good deal of time wondering where the **** I am without it. Pleases the missus no end.

I know I had similar problem locating the DC aux connector - this photo might help.

If you are trying to access it you can disconnect it from the other side of it - the femal connector (so you do not need to cut the tape). I ordered MT090 male connectors for the USB adapter that I fitted.

Hi guys, do I need to remove any side parts to access to the connecter? searched for 20 minutes but couldn't see it on the left side.

The plastic surround for the rectifier on the left-hand side needs to come off, I found removing the rectifier by undoing the two bolts as well, made access very much easier to get the blank off the plug.

Thanks for the tip John, will do as you suggested.

Does anyone have a picture of where the socket should be installed near the handle bar, please? The instructions were not very clear.
