Heated seat on an 01 1800

Postby windindaface » Wed Nov 04, 2009 8:54 pm



I am trying to install a factory heated seat on my 01 1800. Has anyone had any experience with this and do you have any suggestion, comments?

I don't think the 01 came with a heated seat option...unless you already have the controls, its likely you won't be able to do a true factory plug and play install...the 01-05 dash is different from the 06+ bikes that offers the comfort package with heated seats---you won't be able to retrofit the switches, so you are probably looking at an aftermarket solution, or some type of custom fab to make it work.

I have all the controllers and am going to use two rear seat switches instead of the front. I will build the harness and relay assy. Thank You for our input.

I've been looking all over the parts fiche for the relevant parts and wire guides, but I can't find it; unfortunately, the service manual I have is for a wing that predates the comfort package so I can't look there...I'll do some more looking and see if I can find which wire needs to go to battery, etc (I'm assuming thats what you're after)

I have all of the relevent diagrams, I was just trying to find out if anyone has done this mod and dif they encountered any problems. I will let you know how it turns out when I have completed the project. The parts are due in this week, so I won't get to start on it for a week or so.

Thanks

The seat works very well, just had to fool the controller to think it has heated grips.

I'd be very interested in pics and some direction on how you did it---I can get my hands on a heated seat and I'd love the mod.
