The wiring is less of an issue than I thought it would be. I got Gerbings jacket liner and love it. My 800 XC has heated grips and I stay nicely warm. So far the coldest it's been was 45 f. out. The jacket, compared to the vest, has heat in the arms facing forward. It's worth the extra coin.

Hi IT,
My son is in Michigan at grad school and has been having issues with cold hands. I was on Amazon looking at battery heated gloves, thinking of a Christmas present for him, and I think you can find a pair there. Do take some time to read the reviews, though, because there are some that simply don't warm the fingers. Good luck! BTW, how do you have your front suspension set after riding awhile with Greg's rebuild?

thanks kback, i'll look into it.
about the forks. gregg sent them off to the guy that does the suspension for his race bikes. i never got the chance to talk to him about the set up. i do know it handles real good & will be even better after i get it back with the carbon fiber wheels on it

i stroll to a discordant melody

I have been using tourmaster heated gloves and jacket liner for the last few years. They work very well indeed. The wiring is very easy - all that clothing comes with a fused pigtail which you simply attach to the battery. I can ride in quite cold temperatures - down to about 15F for hours at a time with this set up on the Tiger. The handguards help deflect the cold. When the temp is in the 20s I can ride all day with this set up.

Actually, I would like a pickle.

I had the Harley battery gloves, made by gerbing , battery did not last long enough, a couple hours max on low. I sold them and got the tourmaster synergy plug in gloves and jacket liner, 4 years old now, rode Alaska , west coast trips, east coast trips, all of europe and alps with them. Cost me 200 at the time, still going strong, every bike I have has the harness so I can just jump on plug in and go. I do not recommend the battery gloves, you are retiring and will be riding longer so don't make same mistake I did.

That goes for me too. I've had Gerbings jacket and gloves for years. Don't waist your money on battery powered gloves.

I'll take a picture of the wiring connector on the battery later, which may help relieve your concerns about the complexity of adding that. I would seriously not bother with the battery pack powered gear, except maybe on a real small bike that doesn't have the electrical capacity. The Tiger has LOADS of electrical capacity, so not an issue.

I ran the heated gear on my Speed Triple so wouldn't give it a second thought.

I was referring to the OP, who had concerns about mounting the wiring harness. Sorry about that, I wasn't clear on that.
