Garmin GPS CANbus cable question

Will the Garmin Zumo 350/390 CANbus cable that works for a BMW also work for a Ducati, or do they have different CANbus plug heads? Anywhere I can buy a Ducati CANbus head and cut off the BMW head and connect the Ducati head?

I ask because I can't seem to find the cable for sale separately that comes with the Ducati Garmin nav. I can only find a Garmin Zumo cable that has a BMW CANbus head on the other end.

There is a dead ended half connector in place where you connect the GPS. Just unplug the connector and solder your GPS wires to it and then plug it back in.

I have GPS install instructions here:
Switched power connection for GPS etc.

I saw your thread earlier. Thanks! But which cables do I solder into? If I pull off the half connector coming from the bike, does it reveal just a black ground wire and red power wire and I solder into each accordingly? I ask because I thought there are 3 or 4 wires in a CANbus plug?

So you're saying that if I take off the plug tip that's in the headlight harness meant for the GPS that there will only be a power and ground wire going into it and I can just splice directly into those? If so, great! How do I get the plug tip off though? Do I just pull it hard and it will come off the wires, or do I need to cut it at the base of the plug tip and then strip the wires?

Sorry, looks like its a single wire only, which is the switched positive connection.

It's 2 wires. I don't know what your BMW canbus has for wires. Have a look at this thread. It is for the Multi 1200, but the connector is the same on the hyper. You can find lots of info if you google "MTS 1200 GPS connector".

I heard from a Garmin specialist that the BMW Garmin sets are different from the usual sets and BMW bikes are specially adapted for these sets.
The Garmin 660 had a special cradle and the Garmin 390 can be placed inside the 1600 beemers dashboard.
I don't know if special wiring is required and/or available.
Isn't the canbus used for the trafic information option used by Garmin?

Maybe the Garmin forum can bring any help to this issue?

Regards.
