    Well, getting the power wired was pretty simple, about $5-25 per bike, depending upon what connectors you want to use. As I mentioned, the Tiger was easy because it offers a second Powerlet outlet under the seat's left side. All of the other bikes already had an SAE connector wired to the same position, as I use them for battery tenders. All I needed to do was to ensure that the wiring size was large enough to handle the current, and swap out the small fuse in the SAE pigtails for a larger fuse that will handle the heated gear power draw.

    The heated gear plus control system, I purchased from Warm-n-Safe via their ADV discount (thread is here on ADV, let me know if you need help locating it.) I went whole hog and got a full set of jacket/pants/glove/socks and the dual wireless controller, plus a couple of different adapters (SAE to coaxial, Powerlet to coaxial.) I'd say it was in the neighborhood of $500; I could double check on that total if you want specifics.

    RAM arm and mount base for mounting the wireless heat controller, total about $15-20; I already had the scotch-lock so no expense to me there, but probably about $3 if you buy some at a craft or hardware store.

    RAM ball mount for each bike differs on what style mount you use, probably about $7-15 per bike. There are many options for mounting; GPS City is a great source for all your RAM needs.

    All Touratech for me. I like the security and it makes my windscreen adjustable. RKA tank bag when I need it. And a basic ram mount for my ipod/ iphone.

    Clean setup FBJ! I had been looking at that exact model mount, how do you like the results of its high/low setting on the highway?

    Btw, how are you running power to the GPS?

    Thanks, I found one setting I like on the windscreen and I never move it. The GPS is hard wired through the 665 mount. If you dont know, the zumo 665 comes with everything you need to run straight to your battery. I may have a pic that shows a little better. Ill look around.

    These are Rox Risers. They are more expensive, but more flexible. I have a set I don't use as I don't like the "double clamping".

    Yeah, mine are for the 800. But as I'm going for surgery tomorrow morning I won't be able to send them out for a few weeks. Not certain when I actually can. That's why I'm not pushing to sell anything right now.

    Questions guys/gals....

    Do any of you know a way to "Daisy-chain" multiple coax heated options, controlled by (1) controller??

    I specifically would like to add heated grips but would like to control the seat and grips by my (1) Coax controller.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!! :1drink

    I wouldn't do that... what if you need the seat but not the grips, or visa versa? just my 2c. Or maybe I'm not understanding.

    Good point although here in the high desert area I'm pretty sure I'd be using both when its cold.

    Really just trying to cut down on controls

    I don't think any controller will handle the load from all those devices. Why not go one for Bike heat and another for all the clothing?
