White connector under the seat
« on: May 10, 2018, 07:24:07 PM »
Theres a white electrical connector on the left hand side under the pillion seat on my 2018 Tiger 800 XRT. Does anyone know what it is for?

Its not the ECU diagnostic plug which is on the right.  The alarm plug is on the left side but in front of this white one.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Number14 ... How many wires does it have and have you checked to see if they are Live/Dead with the Ignition On & Off respectively?  ..... As I've not got a late bike, let alone a 2018 model I can only guess ... is it an Auxiliary hook up ... something for the likes of the listed Under Seat USB Socket:027:

Not underseat usb, wrong connector type, unless they've changed it!  Looks like a waterproof connector. Strange.

It's not the best photo TBH and Triumph in the late Handbook list an Under Seat USB Socket as an Option (where fitted!) though for the life of me I can't find any fricking USB sockets listed as an optional extra to purchase, to check out the plug type?

If the OP got back to us with some more info/better pictures, that might help.   Till then just shooting in the dark for now.  :027:

BTW that socket ... 'as is' ... can't be that waterproof? Not with that dirty big slit in it  :008:

The USB socket is the black thing in the top of the photo.

Illl try and get some better photos over the next few days.

I cant find any reference in the manual and there is no reference in any of the accessory fitting instructions that I can find.

Ive asked the dealer and they are none the wiser either.

 :084: Do you have an alarm (possibly the Triumph/Datatool one) fitted?
If so could it be for an accessory loop cable, that integrates into the alarm? :027:

There isn't an alarm connected.  The alarm connection block is at the bottom of the screen with it's feedback loop intact.

The USB connector is at the top of the image.

The white plug comes from the same harness as the alarm connector but doesn't go anywhere.

I can't test for power as I don't have a multimeter so cant check if it's live with or without ignition or engine running.

Finally got some more (decent) photos of the connector.  It clips into the side under the pillion seat.



With a multimeter I got the following readings (colours are the wires):



All I have to do now is identify the plug type and wire up the satnav to it for a neat switched live.
