In the left lockable glove box there is a rubber cap over a cigarette lighter sized hole. Is this where the european accessory port is located - and if so can you purchase the part from Honda?

Some aftermarket cigarette lighter sockets from your local auto store will fit in that.
Also I think the one from the goldwing also fits in there.
Honda America doesn't sell a part that is listed as specifically for that.
Maybe a few people will chime in on there parts source.

Hi Daryl,

Yes on all questions. This is the Power Outlet we talked about before. Here's an Ebay Thread to a part that will work: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.m748&item=290581348250&viewitem=&_trkparms=clkid%3D903604634230380144

Sorry to say it does not plug into the Silverwing harness.

Dennis, I seen in one of your ads where you had the Gps mount that had a bar on it instead of the ball. I think this is the one I want. I have a handle bar mount and this would be right and put the GPS in the center. Thanks, Elmo

Humm ... I'm learning, I put on mirror extenders this weekend which required removing the front cover and windscreen - a little hairy for a complete mechanical nitwit but I managed it ....

I must say, though my shoulders are sexy as all hell, it's probably better for my life expectency that I see the road behind me when looking in my SW mirrors - between that and the grip puppies today's ride was a great improvement over last week's.

Wonderful forum - and heyas Dennis!

Daryl, Your a good man...But I can't understand why you needed to take the front cover and windscreen off to install the mirror extenders?

If you turned the handlebars all the way to the left, then you can install the mirror extenders ... and vice versa.

"If you turned the handlebars all the way to the left, then you can install the mirror extenders ... and vice versa."

Well funny you should say that:

When I tried to get one mirror off it hit the windscreen. I popped in the house, grabbed the laptop and followed somebody's pictorial for removing the windscreen. I removed the windscreen, removed both mirrors, then put the windscreen on. HA outsmarted the bike I thought.

Putting the mirrors back on - they whacked the windscreen again (duh) but before I could remove the windscreen again when my wife said "why don't you just turn the handle bars?" -- I did while simultaneously realizing the entire windscreen removal effort was completely unnecessary.

Didn't I tell you I'm mechanically stupid?

I disagree, you were able to find a pictorial and then follow the instructions of the pictorial.

It is always easier to teach when they want/need to learn.

Chevy Silverado 25.6 c / mile
Hyundai Accent 11.6 c / mile
Honda Silverwing 7.9 c / mile <-------- nice!

Yep I really like that you can txt your data into Fuelly, when you setup your vehicles you pick a letter for each (Mine are Silverado, Accent and SilverWing). To use an example:

Fuelly uses a MPG format (Miles, Price, Gallons) so 300 miles on the Silverwing since the last fillup and filling with 3.80 gas for 5.1 galons you would text this to Fuelly:

W 300 3.80 5.10

Err... how do you fit 5.10 gallons in the Silverwing? Did you install a spare tank?

I just did a calculation on mine and got 53.8 mpg despite 70+ mph highway riding and rapid accelerations. nice.

I made it up - as an example Razz Click on the Fuelly thing below and you can paw through the actual entries.

I should have made a video when i did mine. Took about 10 minutes to do. Auto parts store for the accessory plug, 4 bucks. Maybe a foot of wire soldered to the ends. The hardest part is screwing the base onto the socket from the rear. Took power from the headlight, and the ground i used is from a bolt on the front stay, accessible through the right storage bin. Did it all through the w front fairing piece that exposes the windshield bolts.
