Bought a 2002 Scarver recently and it has this electrical socket on a bracket to the left of the forward luggage bay. It looks like its for a 4-pin din type plug. Does anyone know what it could be for?
The previous owner hadnt had the bike long and didnt know what its for.

I want to fit the power socket to my '02 Dakar - is it a difficult job or should I get the guys at BMW to take care of it? I'm guessing I'll have to disconnect the battery... will my alarm be a problem with doing that? :?

Hi Guys and Gals,

Has anyone seen the screen extender for the GS1150 on the Touratech site? It looks as though it should fit the tall screen on the f650. It clamps on and is ajustable in rake. I saw one at barton bike night last week. The downside is that it is ?40ish. I had a look at mocking something up with...
