    Aux power lead (under airbox)

    Hi all, Speed T 2011 looking to wire in GPS / Sat Nav to auxiliary factory plug that is apparently under the airbox. Found a lead hanging down but it's not achieving 12v so the sat nav isn't being triggered to charge. Is this the right aux power lead or am I missing something. Why would it be less than 12v (reading about 10v) battery's fine.

    There is no factory auxiliary power plug on a Speed Triple. The only free plug that should be hanging under the airbox is the lead for the California-only charcoal canister, which is a sensor lead that does not have 12 volts to it.

    You'll have to wire a power point from the battery somehow. I recommend an ignition switched power point. You can pull power from the tail light circuit to energize the solenoid.

    ...also, only püssies use GPS.

    .... also confusing when I'm reading an official triumph accessory instructions that states there is one under the airbox.

    I just looked at the official Triumph wiring diagram for 2011 Speed Triples. There is no indication of a auxiliary power feed anywhere.

    Also, I found other forum questions about a similar problem, where an accessory indicated there was one but the user couldn't find it. There was never any resolution. Probably because it doesn't exist, as per the wiring diagram.
