    So I assume that this will work?

    Also, is the outlet by the drivers leg a DIN outlet?

    Thanks All!

    I have Gerbings gear I bought when I had my K1600 GTL and it still works well.  The rating for complete gear with jacket liner, pants liner, gloves, and socks/insoles is 14 A.  That would only be a consideration if they were all running at the highest setting which may be very rare since they do get extremely warm.  I did install two panel mount Gerbing coax receptacles on the small blue side cover below the seat, run off of my switched fuse block and fused adequately to operate it all for the rider and pillion if necessary.  Seems the pillion connection is totally unnecessary since my wife can't ride due to a back issue.  As a service writer at the dealer told me one day when I was there on a cold morning for service on the big K bike, "heated gear is your friend".

    Jacket=6A
    Pants= 4A
    gloves=2A
    Socks or Insoles=2A
