Power socket under seat.

Hello all. New member to the forum here; I have a CB500F 2016 model. Under the riders seat there is a female power socket. It sits very close to the battery and has 2 wires; I have looked in the handbook but there is no mention of any such socket. It looks like it will take a 2 pin plug of some sort. Any ideas please? Ken.

Sometimes dealers will install an extension from the battery to make it easier to hook up a tender to it. Does it look like this (I think mine has an orange cap):

Here's a picture of a tender you can get from Honda:

That's about all I can think it might be.

If it's not like the above, maybe you can snap and post some pics?

I have one routed from the battery to the rear seat storage area that accepts a charger. Most dealerships will put those on the bikes, for some reason my dealership did not provide one, end up installing it myself. I have use those for years on all my bikes. I just had one come in handy the other day with my Bonneville the other day when the battery got low and the bike would not start. Just used that connection to jump the bike.

Hello, and welcome.

It's an ignition switched live and a neutral. The neutral is the plain green one. The connectors are "Sealed Sumitomo HM" type. The factory actually fit an empty plug shell, fitted with two sealing bungs, over the socket to keep the elements out. You can buy suitable pins and seals on eBay, and use the plug supplied by the factory, or you can set it aside and buy a complete new plug.

There's a second accessory power socket behind the fairing, on the left of the bike, at the front. I can sort you some pictures tomorrow if you like.

Thanks gents. That sounds like the one on my bike Glen. The female pins have foam bungs in em. That sounds like it could be perfect for my TomTom mount which is at the moment direct from battery. Any pics would be useful; didn't know there was another socket at front. Into my shed when done on here. I really do appreciate the help. Ken.

You can splice into the
Wires but do not cut the head off. That is the plug that we use in the shop to hook it up to the computer to scan all sensors. If I could figure out how to upload pictures from my phone I could upload one for you.

Wow! Thanks for that scoot. I was going to cut it off and fit a 2 pin plug/socket I have. Well saved. Ken

Actually I wouldn't mind seeing some pics of that socket if not too much trouble.

I've been out and done a video. I'll pop the link up once it's uploaded...

My worst fear about dying is my wife selling all my stuff for what I told her it cost...

Lets see if this works...

I'm too tired to faff trying to embed the video - here's a clicky link:
