    Connecting things to Battery (SatNav)

    Hi all,

    I have a Garmin Zumo 340LM that came off my previous bike. I have installed a ENGIMoto sat nav mount no problem, however the SatNav comes with wiring all attached which include the Garmin transformer, a fuse then a long cable with two circular terminators at the end to be connected directly to the battery terminals. This is the set up I installed and used on my previous bike with no problems.

    What I need is advice on the best way to achieve this on the MTS950? I'm very crap with stuff like this and because its a new model there aren't many videos / manuals out there explaining the correct way to remove panels, route wires etc.

    Has anyone done this? Or am I missing a better solution? (Soldering etc. is a non-starter as I'm not confident with it and need the sat nav installed quickly for a Europe tour in 2 weeks time.

    I have some heated grips waiting with the dealer to be installed too so I wanted to get them to do this at the same time but after waiting 3 months for those to arrive, the earliest they can now fit me in to the worshop is another 6 weeks... :232:

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Tom.

    Hey Tom, I meant to have a look on my bike earlier to see whether you could feed the cable under the panelling without actually removing it.........sorry, I forgot. Removal of the panels is not so bad, the only awkward one being the black. side one. It's easy enough to remove (just pull off the black ignition key surround and release two little screws and then slide it forward) but it's a bit of a bugger to replace. I'll try to remember to look tomorrow and see if I can come up with anything to help you.

    Thanks buddy mighty nice of you.

    I got impatient and decided to man up and get on with it. I took off ignition panel, black side beak section, then both the red and black side panel on one side. That allowed me to route the wiring exactly as required.

    So far so good. So tomorrows job is to actually connect the wires to the battery, then put all the panels back on! And if I get that done efficiently; go for a test ride!

    It's a bit scary looking at all the bits missing from it in the garage but wasn't too bad in retrospect. Sounds like the only hitch might be getting some of the panels back on.

    I'm sure that they'll go back on sweetly for you. As I said, it only the black side ones which go around the beak that test my patience. Good luck, mate.

    Sounds like you've done the hard bit BrownTrousers; getting the panels off without breaking anything  :008:

    Re-assembly is easy just don't force anything and make sure all the catches line up. Patience, check and double-check. You'll probably notice that the black panel seems to not fit tightly but that's normal. There are pictures in the gallery but you can also compare it to the other side.

    Long term I'd look to getting a plug fitted so you can connect to the socket left by Ducati for SatNav installation. It makes life that little bit more easy. There's info on here about it :028:

    All done. Sat nav mount looks great and power all hooked up, tucked away and functioning. Thanks for putting my mind at ease everyone.

    In the end the potentially troublesome side beak section slid straight on first time.... the part that proved awkward and took longest to reattach was the pillion seat!




    Ordered a tank bag for tomorrow and once I've fitted that the Multi is officially prepared for my Spain trip!

    Excellent, job well done!

    Now, my pillion seat slots in with no problem. I carry a disc lock under the seat when Iím away.

    Does anyone know if this Ducati SatNav power connection is under fuse?

    It's not the easiest wiring diagram to follow but the connection does seem to join a few other parts and end up in fuse box 2 position 5 (57 on the wiring diagram). If I'm reading it correctly  :033:
