    After Market Front and rear heated seats modification

    To the front seat, I opened its upholstered part, I inserted a kit bought from Amazon for about 20 with shipping included. I reupholstered it and until today I have not had any problem. It has two warm-up positions, low and high.

    I was looking at that as an option.  I would prefer the factory set but am certainly considering that.  Thank you.

    Did you install the kit with supplied relay and wiring or did you tap in to the OEM harness for the heated seats?

    Connected to the entire kit that brings that heated pad, so it is not connected to the harness that has the Trophy.

    Been there done that 5 year ago before the Chinese market did  motorcycle pads. I bought a 2 seater car set which included 4 pads for passenger and driver seats. I fitted 2 pads to the motorcycle seat one for pillion and one for rider running from one switch as per instructions for one car seat. I then unplugged the pillion seat until needed but I hardly ever have a passenger. Worked flawlessly until I traded my trusty ST1100 (I had from 2000 until 2019), for the TTSE. When I got the TTSE I had the second set ready to fit knowing they were tried and tested for years of use. only draw back was heat 1 was to cool and heat 2 would boil your bum a little, Now I have fitted the remaining 2 pads for pillion and rider on TTSE and from the Chinese market got a 5 heat digital 2 seat controller (as fitted to Toyota according to advert and  instructions) which I fitted in the battery cover with a speaker fader switch (as I prefer hard wired headsets). Both switches look quite good. I worked silicone grease into switches to prevent water ingress. The digital switch illuminates (seat icons) when engine started. Press icon 1 Switches the rider seat on 5 presses heat 5. Icon 2 does same for pillion a definitive improvement on a 2 setting switch. I also cut the seat heater wiring plug off the TTSE and from research on here and workshop wiring harness I did not use TTSE dash Icon wires and working out front and rear seat wires then soldered all joints. Anyone considering the Chinese seat pads go ahead they have been reliable for me for years, and anyone considering using OE seat heater plug do your research on the  wiring colours and maybe after your warranty runs out of course. Good Luck.
