Original sockets power is feed via can-bus. I wired spare 12v socket with 10 amp inline fuse direct to battery so can either charge or run compressor from it. 

CanBus ???

Un article qui explique comment monter un phare additionnel LED couplé à la commande de phare sur la Tenere 700 et les quelques particularités à respecter.

 

Have a source and mounting details for this?  How do you like the additional light and any complaints from oncoming traffic?

To put it very simply (and possibly incorrectly, if so, someone will chime in), a Can-Bus is a microprocessor that handles elecrical relays and such.  A lot of automobiles have them, BMW motorcycles are notorious for them.  In this instance, the 12v outlet on the T7 is linked to a can-bus, so it limits the amperage/voltage and other functions.  Can-bus can also be related to ECU functions on a car or bike (not sure if it is on this particular model).

 

Again, anyone with a better electrical background than myself, please feel free to correct the above.

CAN bus technology (Controller Area Network) enables all control units to be networked, simplifying the comprehensive diagnostic process. You can find out more online!


Need to confirm is T7 Can Bus.

Thank you very much for this guide! I installed a USB quick charge outlet in place of the stock one.  I chose not to move the stock one over to the blank spot, for now.  We use a SAE plug wired to the battery for our tender, air compressor, charging stuff at camp with the USB adapter while the bike is off, etc.

You are welcome. Good stuff. The USB ports unit is handy.

OEM Yamaha USB Power Socket - double USB power kit for pre-wired units - Handlebar mount type USB DC outlet.

 

Good write up buddy so thanks for that. Will this one fit straight in using the plug in the picture?

Thanks!

 

It’s the 2 pin male plug you need, from below.  

 

Easy wired in and got via eBay:

 

s-l400.jpg

Fitted to most R6, Tén ér é, MT07 09 & Tracer models. This is the un-sealed square 2 pin 0.090" (2.3mm) connector - DO CHECK this is correct from the drawings/photos. Often found on the clutch lever side of the bike and fastened to the wiring loom with insulating tape - see photo's.

 

Suggest soldering is best, but crimping should work too for some years 😀

Under the right-hand side (throttle) side-panel the spare there is a 3 pin - that can be for heated grips so it's much greater > 2 amp.

@Janson Sorry, my mistake, not can bus - but just light weight wires that may be not suitable for 10 amp / 120 watt long draw load of a compressor.

Great post. Thanks! Really like the info for a hot socket for battery tender to hook up through socket....NICE!

question, does the T7 have an actual voltage reading on dash?

 

Y/N?

 

found this USB socket with a voltage reading on EBAY.

F6A6DEC9-D4D6-485D-9874-0B86AC71C8A2.jpeg

@Todd B There is not a Voltage Display Reading in the stock Dash. Therefore, yes, the above USB would be grand. I've got one like that fitted to my MT-10.

No idea. Guess another spare Power for whatever people what. Just like the right side if it is 12 volt it does have be for any thing particular thing. See if it provides switched by ignition switch 12 v. Again I don’t know but good at guessing - may be it could be used for running day or extra spot lights etc.

@X Plane thank you for the guidance. Installed the one with voltmeter and also run a wireless phone charger from the same circuit. Hopefully i will not forget and won't use wireless and USB simultaneously

 

that's  how it looks like
