Adding seat heat
« on: January 09, 2019, 08:09:20 pm »
I had emailed a couple places and got no reply. What’s the easiest way to add seat heat to a OEM touring seat?

Well one would think the easy way would be to send it off to a seat guy.  Might be a job to find a guy that wants to do it and has time.  You could be bold and buy a heated seat kit and pull the cover and do it yourself.  You could also just buy heated liners for your pants and or jacket.  I do love my heated gear.  Maybe one day when I run out of projects, I'll do heated seats.

Bitchn Stichn in Lakewood CO (Denver metro) sells a heated seat kit. http://www.bsseats.com/stuff.html#heater  Give them a call & see if it will work on a C14.
The site looks like a Harley place but they do seats for all bikes. I'm taking mine in this spring for them to modify my seat to my chubby butt for better comfort. They'v done several C14 seats and have a pretty good idea of how to improve them. They get great reviews.

Thanks I’ll do that. I had contacted a couple places that offered it and got no response.

I don’t ride enough below 40° but when the misses is with me I’d like her to be comfortable.

Cheep and dirty way is to buy a automobile seat heater cover/pad and strap it to the seat. Power through the power plug on the right side of the faring.

if you want your seat customized you could send it to Seth Lamb. He also can add heat to your seat.

Here's one contact I would reach out to. Friends and locals have good reviews on him and I will do the heat upgrade on my Laam seat next season...

The problem I had was finding the heat element. I don't remember where I found
one that was small enough and 12 volt powered. I controlled it with a "Heatron Digital
controller" I highly recommend a digital controller as the simple 2 setting switch was
never just the right amount of heat.
Don't give up, you will find you like a hot but!
