Can the heated liners be used with the stock alternator. And if so how many liners.
Yes but just like a bank account you can't spend more than you get (for long).

If you don't have other large loads and your stock alternator is putting out as a new one will, you could easily add two heated jacket liners and gloves without too much problem but you may want to shut them off if running under 1500 RPM for very long since the stock alternator barely charges at all, at idle and with these loads you would easily be discharging.

Well its a drizzly rainy day here in northern IL so I spent the afternoon in the garage working on the Wing. I removed my old worn out electric grips and installed new ones as well as wired my new harness for my jacket. I tested everything out and it all seems to work fine.

Gerbings, gloves and jacket liner, I love 'em! I made an aluminum bracket and mounted it using longer cap screws through the clutch perch clamp. The dual Gerbings controller clips onto the aluminum bracket making it very easy to change the controller setting. I put an o-ring under each controller knob so it wasn't so easy to turn. The extra friction makes it a lot easier to readjust the heat when wearing gloves. I strung the two conductor wire from the battery ( with a fuse at the battery) to the left cubby and brought out a female connector that lays alongside the DIN cable and connector for the headsets. I made up an extension cable from the controller cable that goes to my jacket and glvoes. I tried it with the controller attached to my jacket but found it awkward to adjust without having the controller solidly mounted. Now I can adjust it without taking my eyes off the road ahead.

It does get into the 20's and teens F in the winter but this time I just under-dressed and waited too long to get something on until I was getting good and chilled.



You, underdressed, now that's a site I'ld like to.........................on second thought, maybe I don't really wanna see that afterall. Being cold, is only a metal thing, right?

Yes, being cold is a metal thing. I have parts in me that have never seen cold and when the parts around them start in complaining, I get the heat going one way or another.
And you are right me under dressed is not for the timid or weak, elderly or infants.

Seeing as I have an Aspencade, with no factory installed CB, I mounted my power outlet for my heated gear in the knockout panel where the CB usually resides, running the fused harness in behind the faux tank.
I mount the heat controller on the end of my Firecreek Tank Bag, closest to me, along with a 1' extension cord, so it's easy to see/regulate and I can get off the bike to fuel up, without 'unplugging'.

Dusty,

This is a great idea. I have an Interstate that doesn't have the air compressor controls, so I will mount my electrics here. Beats the zip tied connection hanging out from under the seat.

Thanks!

As an added bonus, if you wired directly into the battery, get an adapter for a battery charger to plug into the Gerbing's supply cord.

Also, if you wired directly into the battery, don't forget to either unplug or turn off the controller when you turn off the ignition. Heated gear can run down a battery fairly quick, especially in cold weather.

That's a really nice setup Dusty. Very clean. I only have the gloves right now but I'm looking to add the vest soon. Will the gloves connect directly to the vest?

They will connect to a jacket liner(there are connections for the gloves in a 'pocket' hidden in each sleeve) but am pretty sure there are no such connections in a vest.

You'll need a special glove Y harnessto run your gloves. If you onlyhave a single heat troller, than you are only safely able to run one piece of heated gear at a time. You can cheat and buy a small splitter cable and plug each piece into it and then plug that into your single heat troller, but I've found that the different pieces of gear require different heat settings when run that way. Best to have a dual heat controller and plug each piece into it's own outlet.
