BMW style plug won't work with Triumph

I just got a new to me 2006 Tiger and have dicovered my BMW power plugs won't work with the Tiger's factory plug. They look the same but the BMW is slightly larger.
Thanks for any help,
Rod

That's strange, I added an aftermarket powerlet plug where the factory second power outlet goes and it is exactly the same diameter as the OEM on the ignition.
I have a mate with a GS and we can use each others leads for charging etc ???

Just for reference the mini-plug used by both BMW and Triumph (and in some boat based applications) is a set standard as such for compatibilty the plugs and sockets should have the same dimensions

Standard is ISO 4165 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_4165

Plugs are often called
BMW Style
Hella
DIN (which is sort of incorrect as that is a German standards authority so it should also have a number)
Powerlet

Glad that worked out...BTW, i just bought a 2006 Tiger recently myself and made a right angle powerlet to cigarette adapter, works well for powering my GPS, etc and does not look too bad..used a powerlet plug wired to a CG cigarette socket

Thanks for the replys fellas, I've spent about 3 full days go'n thru this machine make'n it mine. I have just two things I want to use the outlet for, my heated vest (BMW) and my trickle charger. I'm gonna post a few pictures soon. Sure do enjoy having a modern cycle after driving old ones for years.
