Default Gerbings wiring ideas

I ordered my Gerbings jacket liner and G 3 gloves and a dual controller, looking for ideas on a neat wiring set up. where is the best place to install or put the controller, I don't want to drill any holes I don't have to or be sorry I drilled holes that I did not have to. also I just got a new Tourmaster Transitions 3 jacket, with the gerbings jacket liner I take it I can remove the Tourmaster liner and replace it with the gerbings.

I clip the dual controller for Gerbing onto the cinch strap at the waist of my outer jacket or onto an open pocket. The controller also came able to velcro onto the complement velcro part that can be stuck onto the tank.

If you do end up drilling into something for a more stable permanent fix I recommend NOT drilling into the gas tank.

A piece of aluminum angle drilled to be trapped under the left mirror stalk holds a dual controller on top and and a cruise control pad on the front. I like one controller on the gloves and the other for the rest of the gear.

I open the zipper slightly on my tank bag and hang the controller right there. Did you get the case with the clip for the controller so you can do the same thing ? I use one of the soft covers like this : ( https://www.denniskirk.com/408785.sk...FQHonAodVlQASQ ) , to run the wires through to protect the paint on the gas tank and then just have the plug from the battery come out from under the front of the seat.

Hi GreyWolf

you have an impressive set up on your bike neatly arranged. I have a few questions for the group. I am planning on installing a switch to turn off one of the head lights, which one is preferred the clutch or brake side, by turning off one of the headlights is this enough that I won't have any issues running both the gloves and jacket liner, did you wire the power to the gloves & liner direct to the battery or did you wire into an aux fuse box. is replacing the tail light bulb with an led type any advantage to keep from overloading the alternator

Use some Dual Lock on the side of the tank.

I put mine on the frame on the left side under the seat. It's the place where the helmet lock goes on a Wee. My Vee already had velcro there from the previous owner. Works great. Out of the way. Easy to connect to the battery too.

You can run gloves and jacket liner at full power with both lights on. I run gloves, grips, jacket liner, pants and boot insoles up to half power with both HID lights on. I arbitrarily chose to cut off the left light but I don't ride with one light after dark.

I used hook & loop to fasten mine to the rear of the tank. Works for me. I just have a single controller.

Thanks GreyWolf

Are most of the guys running direct to the battery or a aux fuse box, eventually I will be connecting my GPS and maybe one more acc, please advise on an ideal wiring set up for my application.
