If you’re riding in the cold and you cannot stay warm, you should check out the heated gear Harley offers to make cold weather days a lot more comfortable. I opted for their Heated BTC 12v Jacket Liner and their Heated BTC 12v Waterproof Over the pants. They also offer glove liners, gloves and sock liners for extra heated gear.
The installation is pretty straight forward. To start the install, you will need to hook terminal connections in the kit to the battery. Locate your main fuse box if you have one.



Now remove main 40-amp fuse by pulling straight out.



After removal of fuse, locate battery terminals and disconnect the negative side and then the positive side. Now connect your positive BTC connection terminal to the battery with your existing positive terminals. After that, hook your negative BTC terminals with the existing negative terminal to the battery.




Now you need to locate where you want your connection to the jacket and pants to the be from under the seat. Make sure your selection does not allow the seat to pinch the wire. Overtime this can cause the wire to wear and possibly short.




Tuck all your wires back in and do one final check with your seat on to make sure there is clearance on the wires. Use a black wire tie to secure to location for easy access. Install seat and now put the 40amp main fuse back in its slot. Install is now complete and gear can now be checked out and used.




The gear has the connections for the motorcycle nicely tucked away in built in pockets, so wires not in use are not dangling around. Simply attach your connections to the Y-connector and plug into terminal on the motorcycle.



After connecting to the motorcycle, you have three settings to choose from simply by pushing the Harley button. This makes it convenient for adjusting while on rides without a distraction you from the road.

This gear definitely makes a difference blasting down the highway on bitter cold days and nights. The only con is, I can ride longer and my brothers complain. When they ask me to pull over so they can get a warm up break, I want to keep rolling.
