Bmw Vest Cord

I just purchased a BMW vest without a cord. Where would I get the cord that plugs into the vest? I assume that this cord plugs into the BMW accessory cord which plugs into the motorcycle.

I assume you are speaking about a heated vest. The trick is to figure out which vest you have as BMW does not manufacture their own. I'd stop by the stealer and ask as they may know, or cruise the web and look at the connections of various makers out there. maybe 3 or 4 major ones, that you'd have to check...

Its a black and grey heated vest with two male plug ends exposed on the vest. It only has tags on it that say BMW.

Re: Bmw Vest Cord

that is a fairly standard connector. I use an adapter that makes it a standard male negative female positive which can then be plugged into a lot of "heat troller" units that will allow you to vary the heat. Your vest came with a plug that was strictly on/off so you either boil or freeze. You might check with our own Raffy at http://www.motogear4you.com/ and if he doesn't carry something I'm sure he can tell you where to get it.
