Another way to plug in your heated gear

My dad has a vtx1800 and he just got some heated gear. So we are gonna mount this set up under the key switch.

I am impressed with the quality of both products, and just how perfectly the plug fit into the bracket. I just eyeballed it online, and it fit like a glove.


Here are the links to the products


Bracket- $20 - 8mm Multi-Fit L-Bracket (Black Anodize) - Powerlet Products

They have different shapes and sizes of brackets too. I'm sure you could make your own, but having it anodized and ready to go was nice.


flush mount plug - $10 - Firstgear Premium Heated Motorcycle Gear-Accessories


That piece is a well machined part. I am very happy with the product. Although I am going to cut off the end(red tip), and put a battery tender lead on it instead.

Here is the finished product

Nice a tucked out of the way. My father didn't really want it too noticeable. He is very particular about the look of his bike. When standing up, you'll never notice the plug unless it's in use. So i mounted it there and he was very pleased with the result. And it's really easy to get to, but not as much as I'm sure other people might like.

Thanks man. When I do mod's I really take my time and do the best job I can do. Like, I didn't take a picture, but I cut off that red tip, bought a battery tender connector, and soldered the wires together, then put color coded heat shrink over each wire(black and red), then put colored electrical tape over the heat shrink, followed with 1 huge thing of black heat shrink over each one. Some call me anal, others call me thorough. Take your pick

I am the same with my electrical work too. Except still quick. You should see my electrical panels when I install them. I got a picture somewhere I'll have to find
