I know that this topic has been covered in other threads but I've not managed to find the answers I need so here we go again.

I plan to wire my Keis heated jacket and inner gloves to the bike but rather than cable all the way to the battery I want to use the connector under the seat. What I need is to get advice on how to either get a conversion cable from the coax type jack on the jacket wiring to the connector on the bike, or the pinouts on the connector so I can modify the cable supplied with the jacket intended to wire to the battery.

The current draw for the jacket and inner gloves is 8A so it should be fused for 10A.

Can someone provide guidance on how to get this wired up in the simplest way - other than pay the dealer to do it (which is my last resort). Below are pictures of the connector and also the cable supplied with the jacket to wire to the battery.

Cheers

I dont believe the stock wiring is heavy enough to deal with the load of the heated gear. Most, if not all, heated gear recommend you wire straight from the battery and use the wiring they supply which is of a heavier gauge.

Wiring the Diavel for the heated gear is quite easy, probably easier then trying to connect to that connector under the seat.

Btw I recommend some type of thermostat or controller. If you wire the jacket directly the bike depending on the quality of the gear the amount of heat generated could literally burn your hands and body, or at least be completely uncomfortable.

another option (if you have the battery wired to a battery tender) is to get a SAE connection to DC Coax Jack adapter (similar to this http://www.amazon.com/Firstgear-Connection-Coax-Jack-Adapter/dp/B00271ZL9K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356974740&sr=8-1&keywords=sae+to+dc+coax) and wire your temp controller, jacket and gloves to this. This is what i have done to my diavel and i have simply velcroed the controlled to the frame for easy reach.
Me too...works like a charm...

Mine is wired direct to the battery and the plug has a protector cap with loop which is over the preload adjuster. I used heated gear coat with wireless remote control which I velcroed to the fuel cap. It is easy to adjust up and down on the go and no wires to deal with except from my jacket to the bike.

Thanks for the suggestions. I do have a controller with the jacket so that will be wired in too, just didn't want to complicate the question, so thanks.
I'll let you know how I get on.
Happy New Year!
