F800ST best place to wire in satnav power?

Postby Goldbug101 » Thu Feb 23, 2017 11:27 am

Hi all.

Planning to install a powered mount on my wingman's F800ST.

Mount needs to have power only when ignition is on, so mount isn't drawing power (to convert 12v to 5v) when bike is off.

Is it a matter of tupperware off and run cable back to fuse box (wherever that is on this bike), or can I piggyback off a fused switched feed somewhere near the head, bearing in mind current draw for a TomTom Rider should be minimal?

If you've done it, as I am sure one of you has, please could you let me know?

Thanks

My Garmin 660 mount has a built in fused connection direct to the battery from the mount on the handlebars. There's no current draw when the GPS unit is switched off, or off the bike.

I fitted a waterproof USB socket to both my sons 125 & my K100 outfit, wired direct to battery
with an inline fuse & a switch to isolate the socket. Works on both bikes with no problems.

Thanks for taking the trouble to reply, chaps, much appreciated.

However, your answers didn't really contain the information I need, but hopefully someone else will be able to fill in the details.

Cheers.

HI GB,

I'm not familiar with the F800ST but had a look at the wiring diagram for 2006 - 2010 models.

The F800ST uses the CanBUS system.

There are two sockets coming off the Central Chassis Control Unit (ZFE):

1. Accessory Socket - This has three wires connected to ZFE pins 28 (Red/White to socket pin 3), 42 (Blue/Green to socket pin 2) and the main earth common point (Brown wire to socket pin 1).
I don't know why there are three wires to the accessory socket - I suspect one, possibly the Blue/Green wire, might be a signal wire to tell the CanBUS to stay on when this wire is activated.

2. On-Board Socket 1 - This has two wires connected to ZFE pin 4 (Red/Green to socket pin 2) and the main earth common point (Brown wire to socket pin 1).

I don't know where you will find these two sockets.

A bit of extra info but perhaps not much help!

Thanks as ever for your help, Ced.

Clearly I need to get better acquainted with the internals of the bike. Its owner is back from abroad today, so I will pester him.

Cheers.

I believe there is a dedicated power supply socket suitable for gps use situated on top of the battery. If it is the same as the power supply on my 07 1200gs you will need a power lead that you splice to the tom tom power lead (You only use 2 of the wires). I got mine from motor works part no. ELA13585. In theory it should only power up the tom tom when the ignition is on but I found to my cost that when the ignition is turned off the tom tom still draws some current from the battery......result a flat battery! I don't know why it does this but I just unplug from the tom tom holder after each ride just to be sure. Hope that's some use.

Thanks for that, Alan - I will investigate. I think it's the cradle itself drawing the current as it reduces 12V to 5V for the TomTom.

I got the wiring connected up in the end. Used a spare connector on the wiring harness to the right of the air box. It had a +ve that was only live when the ignition was on and turned off 6 seconds after the ignition key was switched off. Cut into the +ve - the other wire to the connector was not -ve. Picked up a ground close by, job done.
