All the comments have been very helpful, don't get me wrong!  :467:
I guess having an early launch model has it's drawbacks...   :016:

Can't get rid of the '12 Tig - 60k miles all over UK and Europe, and with the slight mods carried out, it is still exhilarating on acceleration and cornering...   :007:  Always puts a huge grin on my face.   :001: :001: :001:

There is always a fix to any problem - just need to think outside the box!  :152:
If the throttle is not wide open, and the clutch not disengaged, I'm not doing it right...

Pretty sure that front socket is 10A rated CraptainC
Yes you are right Tel - clearly I was talking out of my A  :006:  the 40A stand-alone fuse is the main fuse, and fuse # 7 in the fuse box feeds the front Aux socket, and is 10A.  I was however correct in that this is permanently connected so the front Aux DIN socket can be used for hooking up a maintenance charger if needed.

Thanks for correcting me  :467:

BTW, according to the owners handbook (for the Gen 3) fuse PS4 (25A) is for the rear auxiliary socket along with heated seats and top box aux socket (if fitted)

Yes, but these physical fuses are main circuit fuses, the rear socket (and other areas of the bike) are also protected by separate electronic fuses, that rear socket electronic fuse is rated at 5A.  :821:

Do you know if these 'electronic fuses' are reset-able ?  I certainly hope so  :084:

It's all down to the bike, you have no input on that apart from switching the ignition off and on again to reset the ECM and the circuit (page 206).  :169:

Ah, OK... now read page 206 of the manual (thanks Tel for, pointing this out) I see that the Chassis ECM controls the switching and cuts power to the affected system, if a fault is detected. This is not necessarily the same as 'electronic fuses' (as electronic over-load protection can come in various forms). Main point however still valid == ECM provide additional fault protection for each (probably) of its switched circuits  :152:

Correct but it is more than just a short circuit trip, there is a specific trip value associated with the rear power socket, 5A  :002:

Yes, it is the twin wire with right angle plug that I am referring to.
This is the one for the auxiliary DIN socket that occupies the rear round hole on the LH side of the rear plastic fairing.
I cannot find any voltage on the pins of that plug with either ignition on or off. Just unsure as to why this is so, and how to fix?

Its engine running only as I found out. Heated seats will only work when the bike is started and running

Hmm. That sounds interesting and logical!

I will try that this morning.

Thanks to a fellow Portsmuthian - or Pompeyan? I'm sure spelling is incorrect!
