I use one of those to connect my battery tender pigtail to my coaxial connector.
I use the heattroller control as well since 3 TM controllers crapped out on me.

Is that possible to connect that liner with Coax to SAE and then SAE to Cig lighter? or straight Coax to Cig Lighter?

You're going to need a controller of some sort in between the battery and the liner.

Cigarette lighter sockets are loose and will vibrate apart on a bike. I go from a BMW socket to coaxial on one bike and Battery SAE to Coaxial on the other.

I think you should be able to do what your trying, but be sure not to reverse polarity.

Which bikes are you guys using the heated liner on?
I pick my jacket up in the morning. I ride a XR650L.
Have any of you had issue's, when used with this bike?
I plan to start the bike, plug in, then turn on. Any objections?
At the end of a ride, I plan to turn off, unplug, turn off bike. Any objections?

Your XR650L makes around 185-190 watts at max, lower rpm less. I have a XR650L too and it also has grip heaters. If I run both the vest {vest uses around 20watts less} and the grips on high it will eventually run the battery down. I have actually drawn the battery down to the point where it would not start the bike on my previous DR650 {which has a little bit more current to draw from}. It had heated grips, I was running a vest and it was a night ride so I was using brights alot and I was constantly hitting brakes and lighting up that brake light. After about 4-5hrs of that type riding with the grips and vest on high I shut it off and it didn't have enough to crank the engine.

Long story short, you can't run both the grips and the vest on high. Even if you are not running grips, you have a jacket that uses slightly more current than my vest so I wouldn't run it on high all the time unless you don't mind experimenting on that issue.

Might want to add a switch to allow you to turn off the headlight. I wired my DR so I could run with out the lights but I could easily switch to high beam with the stock switch.

Swap all your lights to LED and swap the headlight to HID. HID and LED bulbs are pretty cheap nowadays. You can swap everything for under $100. That should get you an extra 55, maybe 65 watts. Then you can get the 65w heated liner.

Hell, also change the front blinker\running lights to only be blinkers. Should save ya even more.

I'm looking to do exactly that shortly. Gonna run a couple of LED lights as head lights, spot pointed down and right for low beam and an elliptical or whatever they recommend for high. Each one draws 10watts and puts out 900 lumens. Both together will draw 30watts less than just the stock low beam and will put out a heck of alot more than the stock high beam. LEDs are really getting with the program.

Also looking at a V45 stator swap for around 330watts vs the stock 185-190watt but I will wait to see how all the LED stuff works first. I do love my heated gear and would love to be able to run gloves, vest and chaps. We'll see.

What lights did you find that are 10w and put out 900 lumens? Sounds like a fairy tale.

In some spots they are listed as 900 lumens and in some spots 800 lumens.

http://www.visionxusa.com/LED-Solsti..._88/index.html


In our vender's section there is a inmate that also builds 10w LEDs. His put out 450 lumens and a local guy tried them out and said they were plenty bright and were cheaper than those I linked too. Matter of fact, I might buy one of his 450 lumen spots to use as my low beam simply because the 900 lumen might be too bright.

Seems fairy tales do come true!
