If it's for charging phones then skip the cigarette lighter and go straight to a USB charging port. There are several around meant for bikes and fit in the same size hole.

The best answer is the one that you find most comfortable as everyone is different.
I use Sargent and find them pretty good for me. Without a doubt massively better that the unless stock seats.

Are you on about the connector for the GPS? That is down beside the oil cooler. It isn't a general accessory socket though and it is just a 3 pin round socket that you need to buy a plug for.

Doesn't really prove anything but they are different part numbers 101088004-010 for GS 101088005-110 for RT. At a guess it will be the exit angle that is different.

Don't know anything about r100r but if they were the cross spokes IE to the outer rim then your probably in the wrong job. You could make a lot of money if you find truing these wheels "no big job".
