Wanted to share an idea with everyone on where to mount your heated gear controller. I recently got heated gear and became frustrated trying to mount my "heat troller." Initially I wanted to mount it on my left handlebar on a ram mount off of the clutch reservoir. I should have learned my lesson when running power to my GPS - running power to the front from the battery is difficult to do along the inside frame. There is not enough room around the airbox and tank to do what I wanted.
This was a blessing in disguise. It forced me to think of a simpler solution. I utilized some materials I had on hand to "mount" the controller to the centerstand assist handle. I used a velcro loop I made, some plastic wire loom, electrical tape, and one Gerbing duel controller with one 12" coax extension for the power lead. The best thing is that it required no permanent changes to the bike, is convenient to access, and can be removed easily when not needed (winter time). Hope this helps someone out. -Dan
