Later heated seat install

Postby Walkers » Sun Nov 23, 2014 7:18 pm



Can a heated seat be installed on a 2006 wing that has just the premium audio package without a extensive amount of work?

2006 had heated seats on some models, so the wiring may be there. Using this wiring without any of the switches on the dash would be a bear. You can use a modified system much easier, by installing a separate switch to operate the electric seat heaters. This would be, in effect, the same as adding a heated seat to a pre-2006 bike.

Heated seats can be installed on most any year Wing. Of course none of the supporting "electronics", controls, etc. are present. Most that add an OEM heated seat use heated clothing controlers to make the seat work.

You can see someone who did just that (put a heated seat into a GL1800 that had no supporting circuitry, installing his own controller) here: Installing a 2006+ heated seat in a pre-2006 GL1800
