Heated gear power port
on: October 12, 2015, 04:54:21 PM
I added a power port for my Gerbing jacket and gloves.  Took about an hour.  I was reluctant to drill into the red plastic but this location was ideal for the way I wear my controller.  I'm very happy with the results and the gear kept me very warm for my Sunday ride into the mountains.

I just have my Keiss wired to the battery with a fuse and have the wire dangle out from the side of the seat then when i don't need the heated JKT i just tuck it away.
I admire your much neater solution and bravery for drilling !
You tell me how fast I was going Officer !

Very brave you are sir my hands were shaking when I had too pull off the side panels to fit the rad guards.  Think it was more the cost of new ones though.

Did I mention that I practiced on my wife's F800GT first?  Once I didn't ruin her bike, I figured I'd be ok modifying mine.
