Heat Control - Requesting Advice.

On my Gen I, I had managed (with expert forum advice) to panel mount my heat control. This worked out very well. I did have one inch handlebar risers on the Gen 1. I think this was a Gerbing control. Now I have a nice new 2016 A. Itís getting cold in Colorado! My question, has anyone panel mounted a Gerbing control or Heat-Troller control on a Gen 3? Iím wondering if there is enough room under that panel by the glove box to mount the control. I could just struggle thru pulling off panels and look for myself, but wanted to ask before I go to all that work. I could order a Gerbing or Heat-Troller, pictures I see of both indicate the Heat-Troller is a little smaller. Thanks much for advice and suggestions. Below is a picture of the control on my Gen 1.

I use a Warn & Safe Remote Heat-troller mounted with Dual-Lock on the clutch reservoir. Works great

Thanks for the idea, I may go this way. Did a search, I haven't seen any permanent panel mounts, so may modify my plans and do same as you. I assume the portable control is at least water resistant, I'll check on that. Like this idea better than trying to carry portable control in my pocket.

It has been through deluges ... hasn't leaked yet

I learned the hard way. These days I don't put anything on the outside that isn't waterproof. That way I can simply zip up the vents on the suit, and keep riding.

I use the same setup. Has worked for several years rain or shine.

I use the remote also. Waterproof. They have o-rings on the knob shafts, as do the corded ones.

I use the Gyde formally Gerbing dual heat controller & it is velcroed to my clutch reservoir lid. I mounted the main controller under the seat and and I only have to deal with the remote. When I leave the bike in an unattended area I put the controller in the glove box or my pocket. Pros to this system is I can still adjust the setting on the controller if I loose the remote or the battery dies. The cons are the battery is not replaceable and has a life expectancy of 10 yrs.http://shop.gydesupply.com/12V-Dual-...emp-Controller

Here's the permanent dual temp controller you're looking for: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/g...emp-controller

I also used it and did the same installation as you did on the left hand panel, however, that is on my Gen 2. I don't have an answer to your space question on the Gen 3.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Looks like portable is the way I should go for now, I can get up and running with heat pretty quickly if I go this way.

I use the warmnsafe heat troller that stays in the built-in pocket in the jacket liner. This was not a good plan. After I put on my riding jacket over the heated liner, it is very difficult to adjust the heat. I'm becoming better at it, but it's still not a great plan a. If you're on the fence regarding heated gear, quit dilly dallying. But get a remote controller.

No commercials. No dictators.
