Hi All,

I want to add an aftermarket USB port on the handlebars. I looked at the KTM Powerparts USB because I want to use the OEM connection behind the headlight. It is some kind of
T connector (circled in the pic below). Has anyone figured out a source for the connector circled and attached to an aftermarket USB Port?

Thank you

It’s just spade connectors, lots of people have added USB. Some include myself have added an SAE connector so a USB charger or anything else could be plugged into the accessory lead.
There’s 2 sets of spade connectors. One always live one is key on power.

Actually the USB port I bought off Amazon has an SAE connector, without cutting the OEM wiring how do I switch from that T connector to SAE? Are you saying there is ACC1 and ACC2 also behind the headlight?

Thank you

Just buy some SAE leads off Amazon or local source put some spade connectors on the end and your done! Fish the lead up to where you want it. Mines up to just under the instrument panel. I have a USB adapter that tucks right under it. If I run radar detector I can unplug USB and plug a cig adapter to my SAE and carry on…

If you go to the How To section on this forum, DMA, has done a detailed tutorial on how to fit a very snazzy power connection. I’ve done the same to power my phone, very impressed.

Hi DMA, I have reviewed your post and it is awesome. Would you by chance snapped any pics while you were behind the headlamp to show the connection you made there?

Thank you!
Hey @bhoth I just checked my photos collection and it looks like I didn't take a snap I'm afraid.

However you can see the connection that needs to made in this post that @Geoff made.

With the headlight swung down and the inner cover removed - when looking from the front of the bike you will see two pairs of those female spade connectors with clear plastic shrouds on the left. They are just pressed in the recess on the left hand side as you look from the front, wedged in with the other wires all cable-tied together.

One pair is ACC1 (always on) and the other is ACC2 (on with ignition) - choose whichever suits you best. They should be labelled on the black part of the wire if you follow it back a bit you should see a label.

I put a weather proof USB-C port on my handle bar. Wired into ACC ports by the main battery. Powers my quad lock wireless charger. They're on amazon all over the place.

Similar set-up to mine. Except dual QC 3.0 usb adapter under seat to ACC2 (keeps it out of the elements) and supplied Quadlock usb cable to wireless charger on handlebar.
Allows spare USB connection under seat if needed and usb-c at wireless charger can be re-purposed on handlebar.
