    I just added one to my F700GS, but I think the wiring for the F800R is the same. See the link below for instructions. This is not my write-up, but the one I used to do my bike.

    Hi, I purchased an F700GS in 2013 and have been plagued with random deep discharges of the battery.

    The dealer has diagnosed this as being caused by using a non BMW GPS on the bike.

    I've included the service bulletin on this issue.

    I have now added a small disconnect switch to the switched outlet, hopefully this solves the problem...........Rod.

    I read some other things about this. From what I remember the internal battery in the GPS may fool the bikes computer to think a charger is connected, thus the connector stays on. Your solution should work just fine.
