I love my beadrider, but also note that the heat does not get through.

Re: Wimpy seat heat

Dick, there is another issue similar to the one you describe. Early summer 2 am ride in the high desert. Got cold so turned on the passenger seat heater to keep my number 2 riding partner warm. 4 weeks later my WIFE and I rode in 100* + heat. Asked her how she was holding up in the heat and she complained that the backs of her legs were cooking! Ooops! A quick flip of the passenger seat heat rocker and voila! She was muuuuccccchhh happier!

He 'fessed up when someone turned on the high heat as a joke at a fall RTE - said it had 'never' been that hot before!!!

Check your seat for water my old seats started to soak up water and corroded the heating elements and switch connections , my bike was under bmw used bike warranty so with a bit of negotiating I got a new set foc. The rear seat didnt get warm at all but the front one would get lukewarm. If your bike is under warranty ask the dealer nicely if you could have theold seats back after the claim is processed I did as the earlier seats are more comfortable , my bike is a 2000 model and repair them yourself.

You do know that there is high and low settings..... middle position on the rocker switch is off.

High is roasting hot, once warmed up the low setting will keep you warm.

The passenger seat backrest pad will automatically cycle off after it reaches a pre-determined setting.

Something is obviously malfunctioning because any attempt to run the seat heat on high will burn your butt off.

Re: Wimpy seat heat

I can't run my seat on high, way too hot. Makes me wonder is you should do a quick check of your wiring and connections?

It sure is nice on the mornings when it is in the 20's...

The wife is much happier with warm buns...

I have a 02 and the heat will toast your buns! Why do you need heat in TX?

Wimpy seat heat

On my '05 LT, the seat heat is not getting the job done, just not enough heat. Has anyone else experienced this and what about a solution? I am thinking about going here:

Anyone tried this to improve stock seat heat?

Hmmmmmm
