You get power from the extra accessory plug that is blinded next to the battery. AC supplies the cables but you can wire it yourself. You need two plugs, thou. One for the seat and one for the console. I would order the whole kit from Cat, although you really don't need to replace the seat cover. Good luck.
I just added one to my Z1 and wife's F5LXR. Hardest part was to get cable between fuel tank and tunnel.

Always look for improvements to your ride!

I just installed this on my 2010 Z1 Turbo.

I picked up a kit off of eBay for $100 that was made for a 2009 seat. The kit comes with:
  • A replacement seat cover that has a thicker butt pad area versus the standard seat cover where it is much thinner.
  • Wiring Harness
  • Switch
  • Switch dash mount
As Artical mentioned it is powered by the sled's accessory plug that you'll find along the right side behind the battery. I ran my harness up and over to the left side (clutch side) and under the gas tank. There is a void under the tank for the harness to sit in to the rear of the seat.

To mount the switch I used a Dremel to cut out the hole required so the dash mount piece can snap into the dash.

To mount the heating element in the seat you'll need to pull the staples out so you can remove most of the cover. My seat had a hole in it already for the wire so I didn't need to cut one in. It also had a little indented area where the thicker plastic heating element component needs to sit but I still cut about 1/4" out so it would sit flush with the foam top as I don't want to feel it when I sit on the seat.

Since the kit came with a thicker seat cover for the older style 2009 seat I pulled the stitches out of the replacement cover so I could remove the horseshoe shaped butt pad area that is thicker. I used some 3D adhesive spray on the back of this piece and on the seat to keep it from sliding around and then just stuck it to the foam seat and stapled the original seat cover back onto the seat with rustproof staples.

Overall it's a pretty easy modification to do. Just take your time when cutting the hole for the switch dash mount so you don't mess up your dash.
