Relay Required?
« on: Jun 12, 2019, 10:49 AM »
Hi folks, not been on in a while!

I have a dealer fitted relay and gear indicator already and want to install a USB power socket for charging my phone on a long trip, according to the Kwak accessory page note I only need one relay?

I may also add fog lights as well.....

You don't need a relay for a USB socket but your battery will drain if the bike is parked up for a few weeks, so fit an inline waterproof switch to turn it  on/off.

Thanks, I  saw one on Amazon that had a switch built in 👍🏽
