Is this the Powerlet Low Profile socket a BMW type socket
This is a BMW type socket, I used it on my K1200LT, however with the boot installed it will be deeper than the BMW OEM configuration. The connector for this brings the wires straight in to the connector, on the OEM connection it is a 90 degree angle. The connector is also larger than the BMW OEM connector.
On my LT this was not a problem since there was enough room for all this behind the fairing, however on my R1200C where more of the bike is exposed I am not sure that the connector would work. I would probably opt to solder the wires directly to the leads on the socket and then put a radio shack connecter upstream or something like that.
