The Retrofit kit socket?

While dismantling my newly acquired 79 RS I discovered this... number (4) in the pic.



I've been meaning to ask the forum what this is used for? I have the socket, but nothing to plug into it.

It can be used for battert charging, plugging in electrically heated clothing, etc. The male plug can be found at most BMW dealers, Powerlet, Gerbings, etc. as well as independent shops.

Power outlet for sure. My 81 has an plugin the wire harness, just under the handle on the left side of the frame, that this whole unit plugs into. I use it to plug in my BMW charger and also my heated vest. Seems to be a stock item on RTs.
