Title: First Truimph
Post by: MattSoCal on April 06, 2021, 04:06:54 PM
Just purchased my first Triumph.  2021 Tiger 900 GT Prob   Love it. Lots to learn.  Canít find a place to buy the adaptor for the 12v accessary plug?

Are you just after a standard Hella plug required for the auxiliary sockets? If so, I assume these are also standard in the US?

Owners Manuel says to buy the Truimph part?   Just need something to charge phone from bars.  Have not heard of a Hella plug.

Seems to be more difficult to get these Hella plugs in the US. This is one possible source:

Re. the power socket. Don't forget that the front socket is permanently live so if you leave a USB adapter connected there will be a small battery drain. The USB adapter under the seat is only live with ignition on so you could consider running a USB cable from that one. My 850 doesn't have the underseat adapter so I have incorporated an inline switch between the Hella plug and the USB device. This particular one may not be available in the US though. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hella-DIN-Power-USB-Converter-Lead-12-24V-for-Motorcycles-Trucks-Motor-homes/292122631580 (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hella-DIN-Power-USB-Converter-Lead-12-24V-for-Motorcycles-Trucks-Motor-homes/292122631580)

 :401: to the best Tiger forum there is,  I thought the new 900 had a dedicated phone charging compartment under the seat, my mate got the GT pro but he as removed the charging tray to make more room for other stuff. therers loads of adapters on EBAY for the "BMW/TRIUMPH MOTORCYCLE 12V HELLA STYLE DIN CIG PLUG SOCKET ADAPTOR + SINGLE USB".
