Must have for touring motorcycles I own a GoldWing. If I owned a cruiser, chopper, sport bike, or other bike that exists without massive amounts of plastic and storage space like a GoldWing or other touring bike, I wouldn't need this if I had heated gear. But if you have the space install a permanent controls, it is a must have item. This makes it so easy to plug in and ride. It makes it easier to control and gets in your way less than using the portable controller. The knobs could be made more durable and you have to be careful with the wires and LED lights when installing. There are bunches of wires, so anything short of a GoldWing means finding space for all the wires will be problematic. But for me, this is a must have item. December 8, 2014
This product has great features. This product certainly makes it a lot easier to hook up to heat and control the temperature. Easy to adjust installed in just an hour right onto the dash. November 10, 2014
Gerbings Hard Wired Controls For those who like a clean controls for your heated gear this is the way to go. There is no need to remember where your controller is. Nothing to lose. All wiring and controls remains on the bike until needed. Great time of the year to pick this up and install at your leisure over the warmer months. Ready for next year when the temps drop. Good riding April 14, 2014
Decent product This permanent dual controller makes a nice addition to the look of my bike. I've yet to make labels for the knobs, but plan to do so in the future. The controllers have infinite settings to set the temperature at whatever makes you comfortable.All in all I'm happy with this product at this point and it serves the purpose it was intended for. Now for my complaints! This is the second set that I installed in my bike. The first set that I put in had an issue of losing the stop point when trying to turn off, and would then go in a continuous 360 degree motion. My first thought was when pulling off the cap on one for the installation, the stem pulled out as opposed to just the cap coming off, I worried that I damaged it.There is a slight nub for you to orient into the slot for the proper reinsertion, which you can feel when re-installing. After that controller went, about a week later the second one had the same issue, all this without actually ever seeing road time. I guess I liked to see the led light! Anyways after a call to Gerbings they set me up with repair/replacements in around a week turn around time. I can't say enough about the excellent customer service! Although I am a little skittish and very gentle with the knobs, this product is performing as expected. Now comes my only other complaint. The controller is an encapsulated circuit board with threads protruding for your locking nut(s) to secure to your plastics.In my case I installed mine on the lower left side of my fairing.The only problem being was having two plastics overlapping each other. With the length of thread given, I am just shy of having a full nut of thread holding this to the bike, this without being able to use the bottom nut and jamming it up to the circuit board itself. I feel another 1/4 inch of thread would not kill the profit margin on this product, and would allow multiple location installs. Hope you read these Gerbing's! Either way I would buy this product again and really enjoy the heated gear. I wish I had this stuff years ago! April 5, 2014
Good product. Works as advertised. Once installed, this controller is much more convenient than the regular dual controller that you need to figure out how to strap on or stow in a tank bag. However, it is definitely constructed to be installed on a bike with the battery under the seat. I installed it on a Yamaha FJR1300 which has the battery located in the front fairing. I ended up cutting the power lead and splicing in some extra wire to get to the battery. Doing so voided my warranty, but it seemed better than mounting the junction box in the fairing and having to find space to coil up all the extra wire to the control knobs and buying extensions for the jacket plug leads.

Great product, mounting can be a bit touchy If you have Gerbings gear then you'll obviously want a heat controller... this one works wonderfully and you don't have to carry it around with you when get off the bike, etc. As others have mentioned the little LEDs can be a bit of a pain to mount - they don't really attach, they just kind of sit in the holes you drill for them, so make sure you don't drill too big or you may have an issue. Other than that small issue, I haven't found any drawbacks to this system and find it much more convenient than the portable gerbings controller I had previously. May 10, 2013
Gerbing's Permanent Dual Temp Controller INSTALL-2012 BMW K1600GTL It was easy to install on my 2012 BMW K1600GTL. had to take all the faring pieces off on one side of the bike to be able to route the wires from the battery to the faring. the indicator lights are good for the daytime, but may be a little bright for night use for some people, used it all last weekend, it was 20 degrees in Caribou ME and it worked great. had the jacket, pants, gloves and socks plugged in, I was toasty warm! be careful not to drill into your gas tank on the GT / GTL, its right below my mounting location. I would recommend placing the plugin ports / wires on the left side of the bike, giving a little extra slack when dismounting. be sure to turn your controllers off BEFORE plugging in or unplugging. April 15, 2013
It's expensive but very nice. I find this thing to be expensive for what it is. It's almost half the price of the jacket. It was also a bit of a pain to install (I got some help from someone who knows more than I do). Not awful, but it was a three to four beer Saturday project. It helps lessen the draw on your battery by allowing you to have multiple settings between "on" and "off". Also, the jacket is really uncomfortably hot at full temp. I would recommend that people buy either the permanent or portable controls. April 8, 2013

A shopper asked: Is it possible to connect 2 jackets (rider & pillion) using this - thinking of connecting 1 control near the front of the bike and the other one further back so the pillion can plug in (is there is enough line to do this)?

Robert H: Negative on the line length. The pigtail that plugs into the rheostat lines attaches within a foot or so of the rheostats. Also, be very careful about removing the press-on knobs--I've had the rheostats replaced twice and now I disconnect at the pigtail and leave the controls in place which doesn't please me at all.

Bruce L: I mounted both controls up front, right and left with my front and rear seat controls. System has worked faultlessly for me. Cords are long enough to mount front and rear if you prefer.

Jeffrey N: That would probably work, but i think you will need an extension. I mounted my controllers to the far front on the fairing & the plugs just made it back to the front of my seat behind the fuel tank. Hope this helps. Feb 2, 2014

Aaron C asked: What is the length of the little controller behind the knob, and is it flexible at all?

I'm thinking of mounting this to the fake tank on an F800, but I'm not sure if I have room in there for a straight shot if it's too long.

Gatewood T: As you can see by the picture, the controll knob has a variable controller box with a circuit board attached sticking straight out behind it. It is approximately 3 inches long so you would need that much space. I tried to flex the board a little when I installed it and I broke the assembly off of the knob. Had to order another one.

Stephan Q: There is 3/8 inch of treads behind the knob. Total length is 1/2 inch behind knob but don't forget to include nuts and washer. You have right at 1/8 inch of thickness for installation.

A shopper asked: Hi! I'd like to know what all comes in the box with the permanent dual zone controller.

I already own a jacket & gloves (and a portable controller), but with buying a new full fairing motorcycle, I'd like something more permanently mounted.

EricV: What you see is what you get. The mounted controller has a power cable w/ring terminals and an inline fuse that runs to the battery, (replacing your current pig tail where you plug the portable unit in, or in addition to, if you wish to retain the ability to use the portable unit).

That power cable runs to the controller box which can be placed under the seat or in some other out of the way location, than has cables for each control knob, w/LED light, (red for jacket, green for gloves), that are long enough to locate up front on the dash or fairing where ever you find a good spot.

There are also two power cables that run from the control box to your jacket liner, long enough to be run from under the seat, to either just hang out when being used or to be plugged into a panel mount, (not included).

With the mounted dual zone unit, (not intended to run two jackets, but jacket and gloves), you just have the two power wires that you plug directly into your jacket liner. All you have to do is plug in and your control knobs are mounted on the bike, no more fussing with the portable controller clipped to a pocket or tank bag.

It appears to also come with two co-ax cables that would allow glove use w/o a liner, or heated sock/insoles w/o heated pants.
