Any heated liners with wires on the right side?

Been looking at all the liners, but the wires come out the left side. The powerlet on the k1600 is on the right side, same with the battery tender... Ideas?

Buy an outlet and install it where you want it.

Install a tank bag, run a power cable into the tank bag, plug your heated gear into that.


RKA (and some others) make tank bags specifically for the purpose of having power available inside the bag. Check them out.

Marsee also makes tank bags that (I think...) can be electrified. But you could do the same thing yourself with most any bag you choose.

Get one of these from Powerlet, connect it directly to the battery, pull it out from under the front of your seat when needed, and plug in your heated clothing. Get yourself a wireless controller while you're at it.

Re: Any heated liners with wires on the right side?

Warm & Safe makes a waterproof heated liner where the wire comes out of a pocket on the center back, so you can slide it to whichever side you want. They also have coax extension cables so you can reach anywhere you need to.

You're still better off adding a specific plug or socket for the heated gear though, as the factory Powerlet outlet is current limited by CANbus. You can either get another Powerlet outlet and hook it directly to the battery, or get a coax plug.

Either way, you do want a temperature controller so you can adjust the heat level as needed. My Heat-troller has served me well for the last few hundred thousand miles.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
