  1. Sale - Wanted - Swap (UK Only)
    Only that! This is the socket where the mirror stem fits onto the fitting on the handlebars. (Wow! That sentence is about as clear as mud!) The "fingers" on the socket have been amputated and the socket has given up to ghost. Stem and mirror are intact. Help me out! Thanks. Doc in Senegal

    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.
