Default Fuse location of DC port

I just recently bought a used 2010 st1300. It had no manual with the bike. I am looking for the fuse position that is for the DC port in the right hand glove box. I've checked the fuses on the left side of the bike and they are all good. I do not see any fuses on the right side by battery. Can anyone advise were the power is fused and connected. I am assuming this port is wired. I have tested this port with no indication of power. Thanks

That port connects to the accessory harness under the left middle faring cover. I think there is a 2A fuse in-line with the port's pigtail harness. I don't know how close that fuse is placed to the plug on the harness, so it may be under the top binnacle where the windshield mechanism is. You should be able to find it following the accessory harness. It plugs in just behind the radiator and is routed up the cowl stay on the left side.

The Hondaline port has such small wires and low amperage fuse, that it's really only useful for charging a cell phone or powering an MP3 player. Anything much more than that will blow that little fuse immediately.

Jeff thanks for the response. Accessing the front left side where you suggested looking, looks like an involved process. Not being familiar with the bike do I just start taking screws and snap buttons out or is there an process that I should follow. Thanks.

Here is a site that gives you some good information on how to remove the left side.

With the inner cowl removed from inside the lower fairingI was able to reach the fuse from the top next to the left locking glove box.

I had to take the right side off also to find where the wire was going for power. As you said--it led to the left side. The fuse was hidden behind some obstructing wiring. Finally-- the fuse was 2 amp and blown. I replaced it with a 3 Amp. I hope it will be OK. I also found the DC socket had no connectivity. I replaced it, cut some wires and was back in business.. I learned a lot about this bike doing this exercise. Found an extra key, located 2 ports for vest heating, and generally found my way around the bike. With all those pieces on the garage floor , I was apprehensive in getting it back together. I did get it together and am well satisfied. Thanks Jeff for the help and web sites for reference. Your counsel was very much appreciated.

3 amp will be fine.
Now you need to pick up a heated coat or vest. They sure keep you riding in the colder weather.

If you want to learn even more, hook all those aftermarket DC ports to a central, easy to get to, fuse box as seen in THIS thread. That way, the next time a fuse blows, you only have to remove the seat and don't have to tear the bike apart (very inconvenient to do on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere).
