    New heated seat

    Just talked to Triumph accessories and was told the heated rider seat part number has been changed and it no longer comes with the switch and wiring. They are also out of stock at this time. Just a little info if someone was thinking of ordering the seat.

    I was not all that sold on the value of a heated seat, however, Triumph has the Trophy accessories discounted quite a bit on their website.

    https://shop.triumphmotorcycles.com/seats/id-A9708350/Heated_Rider_Seat

    I ordered a heated rider seat (A9708350) for $195.00 today.  At that price I could not pass it up.  :046:  It should be here by the end of the week.  I hope the wiring kit is in it.

    I got mine today and it is the old part number, the same one you show. As long as it is that part number it should have switch in it.  :047:

    Xhdracer,

    Thanks for the info, puts my mind at rest until it arrives.

    I am in the Chicago area where I was riding this week in 30 degree weather and I felt for $200 my butt could use a warm up, but Las Vegas!  I thought you would be shopping for a seat cooler.   :745: 

    Again, thanks for the info.  Wish I could ride 365 days a year.

    I installed my heated rider seat today. Gotta say the worst set of directions for a very simple install.  However, after all is said and done, it does not get hot.  I called Triumph customer service, their only advice take it to your local dealer.  I said it doesn't work, he said you have to turn on the icon, I asked if that was required for the seat to get hot, as it was not for the grips.  He did not have a clue.   :233: 

    My bike is a 2013 and the heated grips worked with no icon, I did have it activated later during my 20K maintenance. They want $55 to program the heated seat icon without any other maintenance.

    Does the icon for the seats have to be on for the seats to heat?  I am ready to send this back, as I have survived for 48 years of riding a motorcycle without a heated seat.

    Yes I did check the heated grip fuse which I am told is the fuse for the heated seat also.  :157:   Does anyone know any different?

    Please my friends, help with some advice.

    I installed the heated seat myself and it does NOT required any special help from dealership , they are no permanent ICON for the heated seat , it turns on when you turn the seat on and it comes off when you turn the seat off. BTW , the wholw install took me like 15 min , its quite easy.

    Michel1960,

    It took me approx 30 minutes and would have been done much sooner had the temp not been 30 degrees and the illustrations so poor.

    That said, it does not work, I reseated each plug and as I said checked the heated grips fuse.  All good.

    If I do not get a suggestion as to something I might have over looked or should check, it is going back tomorrow afternoon.

    I also installed mine today and it works fine. Not as hot as I expected. I made sure when they installed the heated grips that they also turned on the heated seat icon and it came right on when I switched it on. I have a 2017 if that makes a difference I am not sure. As far as living in Vegas, yes I work like a cooled seat in the summer but we do get cold in the winter. 30-40 at night sometimes into the 20's.
