    Relocated power for heated gear

    The location of the powerlet has never made sense to me.  In addition, running gear with coaxial power probably compounds the issue.  Adapter plugged into powerlet with a cord running up to seat that normally ends up dangling by my calf.

    Easy fix....took power from powerlet and wired in a panel mount coaxial plug.  Will be trying it out in 35 degree weather in an hour.  So far, much more convenient.

    The black button in the middle is just a cover for a 3.5mm jack wired into the gps.  It is there for long days when I kill my Bluetooth battery, I can still plug in and have music and GPS.

    I did EXACTLY the same thing right after I got my '13.  I have a splitter that runs SAE to my tank bag power inlet and has a female coax for my Gerbing heated jacket liner.  Works great, and a shorter length of wires dangling in the way.   Easy to do, and if you want to go back to stock, the part is not too expensive...

    I tried it out this morning.  Location is so much better.  That being said, make sure if you are splicing make sure not to reverse polarity as it renders your heat troller useless :233:

    I only got to enjoy it for a while as the temperature went from 37 to 31 degrees.  Frozen fog was covering the roadway.

    I started down a pretty substantial grade before I realized that it all had a frozen film on it.  Got the bike stopped about 30 feet down the 1/4 mile hill.  Ice behind me, ice in front of me and no way in hell to do a U-turn.  With the sun out, nothing to do, but wait.

    In the meantime a Harley owner saw my predicament from his living room and came out.  Invited me in for coffee or a beer........yes, it was 8 a.m. :008:

    Waited it out until it melted off a little bit in a warm living room while he drank beer, did a U-turn and gingerly returned home.  My handlebars are a bit crushed and I am still trying to get the seat out of my ass :008:

    So in short;
    1. much better location. 
    2. Heated gear is so nice, but won't melt ice
    3. Some people drink beer at 8 a.m., but still have a kind heart
    4.  TTSE handles pretty nice on ice
    5. I will never do that again :002:
    6. Ass will eventually release grip of your seat once you calm down about the icy road


    .....all of life's lesson...

    XSV, that's nice! I'll probably end up doing the same thing now that I see how good it looks! Are you plugging your controller into that port?

    No I have a remote heat troller controller which is mounted just forward and left of the gas tank.

    Coaxial from the coat plugs directly into that port.
