PostSubject: Hook up heated gear   Sat May 18, 2013 4:18 pm

I just received Gerbring T5 Hybrid gloves, insoles and dual controller for my 2009 Swing. Wanted jacket and pants too butt........ my size Razz not available at present what with factory location switcheroo and set up......advised end of may availability.

I will be hooking up to battery as others have but wonder given the cable thickness is there a best location to route cable under the seat to connect to dual controller at waist?

Is it necessary to trim seat support lip?

I ran my harness right through the opening where the battery cables go through. It was tight but fit.

Appreciate your response.

Okay so here's the thing..........Inside the under seat storage I have already run Denali D2 driving lights and I routed that harness to the battery from the outside following swing battery hook up and that cable was larger dia so little to no room there. Even so would that location then require an exterior surface mounted route to driver?

I also have a pig tail connection from the battery routed outside the battery box cover to the inside so I can hook up my battery tender when not riding.
I can hook up Gerbings gloves and insoles to the battery and I know I can route that cable thru the inside and back thru the pop out access cover toward tail but then the hook up to dual would be at opposite end of swing from my waist were dual likely to be.
Therefore I was hoping someone may have routed gerbring battery connect inside under seat and exit in front or just behind rider.

I just ran the wires for Gerbrings and also have large gauge wires that po installed to some misc jack, it was tight and involved some manipulation, but I got it through.
replace batt tender cable with Gerbrings cable, get adaptor for batt tender. I brought cable out through one of the holes for fuse holders, then just hung it out from under seat on side.

Thanks Stanly and Disturbed,
I disconnected the lot, taped a cord to the wires and rehauled them all again and while it was a tight fit I now have the battery tender connect and the heated gear connect outside thru the back of the battery box as well as the battery connect and Denali D2's.The heated jacket liner makes a bone chilling ride a toasty warm full face helmet wide smiling lark.
Thanks for the info.
Enjoy the ride,
Easy

Easy,

My Gerbings connection is just under the seat on the black tupperware on the left side. It is a couple of inches in front of the left rear panel above the silver panel. Bob placed a surface mount in this area. Works well. There is room to put one there.

Hope this helps.

Cathy
