Accessory leads -no power?

No power in accessory leads.

I bought an Oxford dual USB socket and installed it in the left side accessory plug socket. I found the spare accessory leads under the cover beneath the windshield but there is no power to them. I wanted to connect the USB to these so that it does not drain the battery while the bike is not in use. I tried connecting to the battery directly but found that the LED light in the socket is always lit.

I looked at the directions from Kawasaki on installing a 12v DC charger and they are shown here. https://www.kawasaki.com/Content/Upl..._999940485.pdf

Anyone have any ideas on how to get power to the accessory leads?

BTW.... I have the Versys 650LT. The hand protectors do not give enough clearance for using the USB or Charging socket. I bought a right angle adapter for the USB which solved the problem.

Are there any missing fuses in the fuse box? Maybe they don't put them in unless you have it installed at the dealer.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Maybe you need to install the OEM relay? Per Kawasaki, it's a required component for installing the accessories like the 12v socket or gear indicator.

Must have the relay. I learned that one the hard way myself. It mounts right behind the instrument cluster.
