Gerbings electric jacket liner and Panigale

Will it draw too much from the bike's system?

Someone stated possible stator problems?

Running with stock battery.

Plugged it into the charging pigtail on all of my bikes without issue.

Am I causing a slow problem without knowing it?

Thanks for any ideas and recommendations.

I have been using one paired with a set of G3 gloves for a couple of weeks and no problems yet (but 300 miles isn't really a good test). I have the same setup on my SF and have almost 23k miles on that bike and am still on the original battery with no problems yet.

Thumbs up Another Option

Bought this when I purchased my 1198 Corse and have used it often with much success. What I love about it most is that it feels just like wearing a fleece windbreaker, cables slip right back into pockets (glove connections have their own tiny pockets at end of sleeve) but most of all it has a temp control knob to adjust the heat! I will say there have been times when I had to turn it down it became so hot too!

Great piece of gear that can be found much less. Connected it right to the battery and velcro holds the temp knob on the left side so I can access it on the fly. I just have the jacket but its set up with connections for gloves and many other items too. Just an alternative gents.

So it appears using the liner is a non-issue... would adding the gloves be a step too far???

I use the jacket liner and the Gerbing's gloves (G3s sometimes and sometimes the heated glove liners) and have never had a problem with any of my Ducatis including the Pani. I don't know what the other folks do, but one thing I make sure to do is ALWAYS turn off the jacket and gloves before I shut the bike off and always start the bike before activing the heat controller. It may not be necessary, but I have always made sure to never run the gear just off the electrical system without the bike running.

On another note, have you Gerbing's users had a lot of failures with their gear? I have had a lot of problems with mine and wanted to see if this is somehow just me or everybody else as well. In the last 3- 4 years I have had the following fail:

1 heat controller (replaced under warranty)
1 jacket liner (repaired under warranty)
2 glove failures (one repaired under warranty, one waiting on a call back now since it just happened yesterday)

My coworker also uses Gerbing's and has had at least 2 failures that I know about (both jacket liner if I remember correctly).

Anybody switching to something else?

A little off topic:

The FirstGear jacket looks like it works great according to the reviews. So with the ability to stay warm, how cold would you ride your Panigale due to the fact when the roads get to cold they can be more dangerous to ride?
