2014 BMW GSA Gerbing Heated Jacket ?

Sorry, I know there are a ton of threads already but I want to get specific.

I already have the gloves. I want a jacket liner. I am confused when shopping.

I want to be able to plug the jacket into the gloves and the jacket into the right side accesory outlet.

What are all the things I need to buy?

Jacket liner of course. I see one that looks right, is there a "best one". i am not in really cold temps (20 degree nights at times) and stay warm now but want to reduce the layering bulk.

Connection from jacket to BMW outlet?? i do not see it.

Controller? i am confused.

Where is best place to buy online?

Does there sizing chart work? I am 6'4" 240 lbs, wear an XXL olympia long jacket.

I really appreciate anyone who can answer my questions.

Best place to buy is often the Harley dealer, with Harley branding. Good prices.

The jacket liner will have wiring for the gloves. Get a duel controller for the gloves and jacket.

Plug into the Powerlet on the dash if you like, but you will have to hard wire it to the battery or fuse block.

I suggest you do like I did. Power it to a plug directly to the battery. Use the Gerbing flush mounted plug like this:

I'm fond of these as they are wireless for the controller portion and I can mount them anywhere that is convenient without having to run hard wires.
