2008 GL 1800 Seat with Heat

Post by LouG »

I have this seat to sell and I was asked what other years the seat fits besides 2008. Does anyone know for sure?

2006 to 2010 w/Comfort systems
All except 2012 if you don't want the heat or you wire it to heated clothing controlers.
Not sure if you need to do anything to make it work through the heated clothing controlers because there would be no heated passenger backrest present on a bike without the comfort system.

Actually, the seat will fit from 2001 to 2010, but the heat won't work except from 2006 to 2010 and then only if they had the comfort package as mentioned above. There is a way to wire it to work with the previous models, with a switch like Corbin and Ultimate use, but I am not an electronics genius, so do not know how. The passenger backrest can be wired into that also, because both Corbin and Ultimate do it. It probably takes a relay or something to connect it into power to lower the voltage from 12V as that would probably burn out the wiring.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
