Post 12v Outlet
Next week when I install my SP3 with rollers and springs, I want to install a 12v outlet to power my GPS or phone. I am planning to use this Blue Sea 1011 and would like to put it in the cubby hole on the right side near the top. Has anyone tried this? If it wont work there I could use some ideas?

it's been done , and I read about it on ZF, but can't remember where. It was wired through the key, so that the outlet powered off when the ignition was off. a quick look at the wiring diagram shows that it should be easy to tap 12v power.

why not run it off constant 12v power? Like cars are so it's always hot. Not like you 50's don't have a kick start...... Just run it rite off of the battery!

If it were me, I wouldn't do that. I've had enough trouble with my battery already without having another thing sucking its juice. I would rather have reliable blinkers and a horn than a 12v socket that's always hot. I like the idea of wiring it through the key, though.

correct no draw with nutting plugged in. That's the way I would do it cause then you have the option of charging your phone with out having the scoot running. Plus it's not gonna drain alot anyway

Both my Zumas have cigarette lighter outlets to power the GPS.....and are wired direct to the battery. I never had any problem with either one.

That makes sense... I guess it's just a matter of personal preference.

plus if you wanted to charge somthing with it wired to the ign it would ha e to be on and your lights would be on there for you would discharge the battery like a million times more then just pluging your phone or whatever...

Well the 12v supply is on the bike. After we removed the panels we decided the best place was to mount it in the cubbyhole on the bottom. After seeing the factory drainage holes we concluded that water would not pool up to cause a problem. The pictures were taken with a low resolution camera phone so i apologize.

Image
The outlet is a marine grade Blue Sea 1011 used without the plate. It secures with a barrel nut and requires a 1 1/16" hole.

Image
The hole in the bottom of the cubbyhole. Pollen F-ING sucks in the Pine State.

Mounted and secured.

A view of the inside of cubbyhole.

Image
Panel back and position and plugged up.

Image
The wires were run straight to the battery and a hole drilled into the battery compartment on the backside to prevent any moisture from entering.

Image
Coiled plug hooked up and neatly run around the handle bars to the rear of the GPS. Works for phone charger too.

Image
A little something something extra my mechanic installed. BOO-YAH. :cool:

The 12v power outlet works like a charm. Sure, it prevents me from putting a soda in the cubby when in use but its only used on 70 mile rides I take once in a while.

Thanks J.C.

Anyone needing any scooter zuma mods in the Triangle NC area such as these, let me know and I will put you in contact with my mechanic.

Post Re: 12v Outlet
I think I'm sold on doing this as well. Except I want to tap into an ignition wire. What's going to be the best wire for me to splice into, if I don't want constant hot? Thanks in advance for your advice!

Post Re: 12v Outlet
If you start running into battery drain issues or dimming lights. You can install a small .05F capacitor between the battery and the 12v outlet to provide a power buffer. It will help you from over drawing your battery.

You can always run anything direct to the battery, but its never a good idea because its in-efficient. You always want some form of buffering between the power source and your end point. The correct way to do it would be to only deliver the exact amount of watts and miliamps required to power the device - and nothing more.

But - the install looks good and just keep an eye on your battery - you should be fine up to a certain point.
