12VDC Outlet
10/23/18 12:01 PM

[img]
I am on my 6th ZX14; I have owned an 07, 09, 11, 12, 13, and now my last until they make some big changes. I have installed, created and tried many accessories on the bike. One thing I always put is a radar detector and that requires 12VDC. I have tried many variations of a placement of the 12VDC power-outlet over the years. I no longer like to cut holes. I have created, IMHO, a factory looking set up. I usually create my own bracket. This last time I created a bracket and took it to a machine shop to have several produced with their CNC machine. I have several friends that love them, so I had them cut a dozen sets. I then had them powder coated. I use marine grade outlets and marine grade wire. I installed these on my 09 and have never used anything else since. I install a left and right and they are wired in series. The wire is ran down frame (on the right) and under the ram. It comes out by the oil filler plug. Only the ram cover and fins are required to be removed. I connect it to my battery tender.
**Here is my thought on that: I like to charge things while stopping to eat, when I tour/travel/all day ride. This allows me to do that. When I park the bike for the night I take everything off. When I am at home it is on a trickle charger. So I never have to worry about draining the battery. Plus it is simple (KISS is my goal in life).
My Point is this: I have a couple of sets of brackets left over. If anyone would like one or a set, just PM me. Free of charge, I will ship it to you. You will have to supply your own plug, wire and bolts. If you don't use a riser you will need (4) 8x1.25 x 50 to 60mm socket head or button head bolts and nut. If you use risers you will need 70 to 80MM bolts. The shorter of the two allows for nuts, but not locking nuts. Please feel free to steel my design.

I don’t spend much time on the forums! Sorry! I am not sure why I am not on the list for pm’s. But my email isizzdoug at icloud dot com, You are welcome to email me or text me at 360 nine 14 215five.
I posted on the ninja forum and have sent a couple of steps out.

Contact me and let me know:
A) 1 or 2
B) do you want the SS bolts and if so

I recommend blue sea marine sockets from your local boat store or amazon.

FYI: I have made another dozen and sent them out already. However I got a couple of request last month and I hand made two more sets. I am now out of the brackets and stock to hand make any. The local fabricators (marine) want 10X what I get them done in Portland for. The next time I head to Portland I may have a couple dozen made. However I will need to recoup my cost. Or at least some of it. If any one is still interested, you can post here or PM me. I will not get to Portland Until early spring (late march) and then I will get them powder coated locally, it is reasonable around here for powder coating. My cost comes out to about $10 to $20 a piece for the brackets, approximately, unless they raise the price in Portland. I am out of bolts and sockets also, so you will have to provide your own. Just let me know. Thanks. Larry

Hello again from Wonderfull Whidbey Island. I got stupid and sold (gave away) my bike last fall. Well now I am back. Just picked up a very low mileage 2016 SE. this makes number 8. Now for the build, which is half the joy. Ordered everything to do the job. Next is the power outlets!

I will have a dozen (or more) sets made And powder coated. I will be offering them up for the low low price of $0.00. Yep, free. I don’t know if I will be offering the wire and outlets (too many variables).

But this covid mess will slow things down, plus I volunteer at habitat for humanity 3 to 4 days a week. So the process will be slow. And I want to find a local CnC guy that works for a reasonable price. And it is nice to know how many people are interested.

Soooooooooooooo

If some of you would like a set or a single, just let me know! Just don’t expect a rush job.
I will just need a name and where to ship to.

360 914 2155 text and calls are cool. Just be mindful of the time.

I know the topic is stale, but there is plenty of time to get the word out. I had plenty of request last time, even after I was out.

So why free? Life has been great to me and the small $$ cost is nothing and I like giving back to the universe! Plus ZX14R people/bikes are great.

Look forward to hearing from you! And Merry Christmas (Lol it may take that long) hope not!

Good day.
Wow, I am surprised! Only one response. I decided to go with my guy in Portland, he is a good guy. Soooooooooo

Yesterday he said he will be knocking them out and even powder coating them for me. It will be a week or so, plus shipping time.

Because of the limited response, I am only having one dozen sets made (24 brackets).

So if your interested let me know.

Last time, I had folks As far as England and New Zealand requesting. I also provided some folks with the outlets and wire harness. Not going to do that, this time. It cost me a little under a grand, with parts (brackets, outlets, bolts and harness) and shipping, last time. But it was more the time, than the money. Just don’t have the time to Order and construct everything. My friends said I was nuts and should sell them. Nope, don’t need the $$$. And I enjoyed the whole process. But this time, it is just the brackets.

Look forward to hearing from ya.
