GL 1500 Heated Seats

Post by tonyl2547 » Fri Feb 02, 2018 8:57 pm



I just purchased aftermarket heated seats to install on my GL1500 trike. My problem is no instructions came with the package. My question is does the heating element go under the seat outer lining or under the foam backing?

Car heated seats have the heating pad on top of the foam, underneath the cover. You would think this would be similar.
Winging it every chance I get :)

As Stew suggests. The heated element would go on top of the foam, directly under the seat cover. Otherwise, you will have happy warm foam but a cold butt.
