When I got my 800 XCA earlier in the year, I fitted an Optimate socket without any problems. However, after someone pointed out that the accessory sockets under the saddle are unswitched (connected straight to the battery via fuse), I've now ordered a suitable Hella plug and will then be connecting my Opimate via one of these sockets. There's no problem with the original set up but using one of these sockets will be a lot neater.

On my XCA, all 3 accessory socket are connected to the battery in the same way and so, on reflection, I'll probably end up using the one near the steering head for charging the battery.
