HD heated and cooled seat
« on: April 01, 2021, 08:13:03 AM »

Anyone have this yet?

https://www.harley-davidson.com/us/en/shop/Harley-Hammock-Heated-Cooled-Seat/p/52000462.

a grand for a seat is a bit steep, but wondering of the cooling functions is worth an extra $300-$00 more than a normal HD heated seat,

This looks awesome. Is this a new 2021 item? I love my current heated hammock, but would definitely make this switch if the cooling function is decent.

I do have one but haven't tested it yet. It's supposed to be in the 80's next week so I'm going to give it a try and I'll report back then.

 :vrolijk_11:    Would you post some pictures of the seat on the bike? I would love to see how it looks and also feedback on how it changes riding position from stock if at all

Thanks

Finally got the seat installed and went for a ride. First thing I noticed was the seat definitely sits me lower than my heated hammock, which is a good thing because my knees are now bent and I can have both feet flat on the ground. I've got short legs (28 inch inseam) so that is nice. It also is easier for me to throw my leg over the bike. It sits me, kind of, like the seat on my Road King. Janet climbed on the back and she thinks I'm now low enough that she can see over my shoulders. That's something she always complained about. The negative is I'm going to have to buy a shorter windshield.

I wasn't able to do a long ride but the seat seems very comfortable and it definitely got noticeably cool. I'm going to get the IR camera from work and I'll post a temp shot as soon as I can.

The seat doesn't exactly match the CVO hammock or the tourpak backrest but it's pretty close. I let a few of my very fussy friends look at it and they didn't notice the difference until I pointed it out.

I took this picture before I rode off so if you want other views, let me know and I'll try to get you want you're looking for. I'm not a great photographer but I'll do my best.

I'll try to get out for a couple hundred mile run this weekend and, if I can, I'll let you know how the seat does on a longer ride.

So far, I'm very impressed with this seat and plan to leave it on the bike. I'll let you know if that changes.

Joe

Yes please, more photos. Would like to see angles that demonstrate lower profile for rider and seat back in relation to saddlebag lids etc.
Thanks for taking the time

Do the following pictures help?

As an added note, I feel like the seat has sat me about 1" lower. When I changed the suspension and added the fat tire my 18" Freedom Shield was still ok but I could tell I was sitting a just a little lower, relative to the top of the shield. Yesterday I did the measurements with the new seat and I'm sitting 1-3/4" lower. I called John at Freedom and he's making me a new 16" sport touring shield with a really cool eagle laser engraved on it. Once I get it, I'll mount the 18" shield and then the 16" and take pictures to show you the difference.

Love the fat front tire! Have one on my Road King too. I have to take a new profile picture and I'll try to get some good pictures of the tire when I do.

Vroddave asked about seat position. I tried the cooling on my ride but it was a short ride and I didn't have my IR camera with me. I mentioned I'd take a long ride and measure seat cooling as soon as I can. My seat was definitely cooler to the touch than the passenger seat was, and it was turned off. I wasn't and ain't really concerned about heating because I never used the heat on my other hammock.  The heat off my engine always kept my seat warm enough.

Let me know what info you're looking for and I'll try to get it for you.

Thanks for the info. I may just go with a hammock heated seat as it doesn't get rediculously hot in the NC mountains.
