Might be a bit late with this response but here’s some information.

Image below was cropped from a photo of the front end wiring on my SE. It shows the Accessory Socket with Brown and Black/Yellow wires. Those wires become White/Black and Black/Yellow on the other side of the connector that hooks it into the Main Harness.

I think I managed to find the connector which was slotted into a blank. Too some doing to dig this out of the wiring loom!
However when running a volt meter to it and ignition on and engine running even I get no reading. Connected it and nothing.
The Accessory Socket is switched via a relay to provide power only when ignition is on. Check to see if you have the relay – it should be there, even on the SX. The Accessory Relay is located under the tank just behind the steering head. Don’t be misled by the relay you see in the photo – that one is for cornering lights which the SX doesn’t have anyway.

Not sure if this goes back to the fuse box and needs to be fused anywhere?
Accessory circuit is protected by Fuse 1 in Fuse Block 2 located under the rear seat.

Getting to the point of doing exactly what was mentioned. Straight wiring this to a switched live via in-line fuse something like the rear light - brake light?
That shouldn’t be necessary. The bike already has the wiring, the relay and fuse needed for a switched outlet. Adding your own wiring only makes sense if you want an outlet in a different location or you want an accessory socket that is permanently powered.
Hi mate, require your help again lol.

I am adding the quad lock phone charger to the stem mount which I want to leave plugged in. I'm assuming the best wiring to use is the one coming from the auxiliary socket on the dash heading to the relay below the tank? If so, what is the best way to connect to this? Can I just splice into the positive wire heading from the relay to the dash mounted socket and put the negative to a ground frame fixing? Also, do I still require an in-line fuse or does the fuse before the relay protect it? Sorry, I have limited knowledge on this.

Thanks

Yes, if you want the charger to turn on/off with the ignition. A phone charger will usually draw less than 1 amp so shouldn't present a problem for the existing accessory circuit.

You could either splice into the accessory socket wires in the nose or you could connect to the wires at the accessory relay under the tank.

If you splice into the accessory socket, then your switched 12V will come from the brown wire as described in this post earlier in this thread. You could connect the Black/Yellow ground wire here too, or you could attach it to a suitable ground point on the frame.

When I added wiring for my radar detector, I connected at the accessory relay under the tank as described in this post. If you choose to connect there, the 12V switched supply is the White/Black wire.

If you connect to the existing switched 12V as described abovew, then it's protected by the existing accessory circuit fuse under the rear seat.
