[TR] TR6 Switch Plinth

 Some models had the ignition switch located on the plinth.  US standards dictated the use of the steering lock as an anti-theft device freeing up that fifth position.  Feel free to mount your power port there if you have no plans of changing back to the plinth mounted ignition switch.

It appears there is adequate space dead center on the plinth between the switches where this USB port can go. Does anyone know if the 5th hole is still there whereupon Triumph used the same plinth but avoided using the center hole. It would be nice to just “punch out” the existing hole spot if it is still there as opposed to having to drill a hole about 1” in diameter to accommodate the USB switch.  Any help or advised welcomed……  Alex Manzo
