Heated jacket and gloves

Its turning cold now in the UK and I'm thinking of using a heated jacket and gloves on the SS, probably Gerbing or Keis. Any one else using heated kit on the bike already? Any suggestions?

I wired a 3.5 mm coax directly to the battery. I use it for my battery tender and Powerlet heated jacket. The Powerlet can be adjusted to draw 60 or 90 watts. I use it at 90 and control the heat with a Heat Troller. I have heated grips so no need for heated gloves.

A decent base layer, the heated jacket and leathers keeps me comfortable down to 32 F. Any colder and I don't ride.

I spent a couple of years riding through the UK winter (on my old Honda Crossrunner). I had a Keis heated vest wired to the bike. I plugged the vest into the lead that I used for the battery charger - Various adapters are available to simplify connection. A battery option is available from Keis.

As for gloves, Iíve tried a few options. I tried the Kies inner gloves but found them a bit cumbersome when combined with outers. I tried the Keis heated gloves but I didnít find the fit & comfort very good - the gloves felt too stiff and a bit low rent, although they did get reasonably warm. The other issue with the Keis gloves (both types) was the extra faffing when connecting them to the wiring harness. Its just more hassle when youíre trying to get off to work.

The best gloves I found was a pair of RST heated gloves which were powered by batteries in the cuff. As well as getting nice & toasty, the leather was nice and soft and they had a plush feeling. The battery is good for around 1.75 hours so was enough for a round trip to work & back. The honda had heated grips & handguards so my pinkies were plenty warm enough even in the depths of winter. The heated vest under my Rukka jacket also did a grand job.

I bought a Gerbing heated suit, gloves and pants about 18 years ago and am still using it. I am thinking of upgrading the gloves b/c I feel like I lose a lot of tactile feel with the ones I have. They are too thick and cumbersome for my liking. I also use this suit on my off road vehicles and it's awesome. Most of my vehicles have the wiring hook up on the battery, so it's plug and play.

+1 Dealer actually included this in the set up of my bike when I purchased it (unbeknown to me until I saw it).

Mighty consider heated gloves with their own batteries... no wires to worry about.

pics are gone, but see post #12... I've been very pleased with the Highway 21 Radiant Heated Gloves. Still warm here, but when it cools off, will be using them again this year.

We used Gerbings liner for several years, then switched to Warm & Safe liners about 5 year ago as they are quite a bit less bulky than the Gerbings. Harness wired directly to the battery with coax plug-in as most others are doing.

Originally used hard wired Heat-troller, but have been using wireless Heat-troller for 7 years with good success. The controller is zip tied to the left handle bar. Hereís a pic I already had that sort of shows the controller. I leave on the bikes all the time.

I have not used on the SS but for years I have used and own Keis products. I started with the Inner Gloves but then got the outer heated gloves and connected through 12V socket . You also get the 12V SAE optimate lead use, which is actually better than a cigarette socket, I found the cigarette socket/Connection sometimes bounces out and you have to reset the glove as it loses connection, its only a press of the button but still a pain.
The outer heated glove is so was so much better than the inner gloves. ( inner jacket/bodywarmer and it all connects to the gloves and then to the bike). But to be honest,buy heated grips they are so much better.
