A friend has offered to give us a couple pairs of heated gloves, but I'll have to wire the bike with outlets to accommodate them. Is there a standard outlet used for these or are they brand specific?
Be careful. I have a Gerbing type which looks different than some of those connections other have posted links to here on Revzilla. I've also seen "BMW Style" mentioned. Sorry I can't be more specific but my answer to your question would be something like "most are like Brand X but some can be like <fill in other>."A friend has offered to give us a couple pairs of heated gloves, but I'll have to wire the bike with outlets to accommodate them.

The lifetime warranty applies to the heating element only. Wiring, solder joints, plugs controllers etc are covered for 1 year.
I really like the one from Gordons Heated --Whatever you come up with make sure you put a controller in line somewhere. If you hook directly to the battery you will have way too much heat most of the time.
exactly !!!!i have multiple brands of heated gear, and all of them use the same "barrel plug", similar to those you'll see on many laptop computers. Like this pigtail for instance...
that's not to say all brands use the same plug, i guess, but all of my brands do so far...
Worst case i would think that you could wire the bike with sae plugs just to be safe, like those you'll find on a deltran battery tender jr., and then use pigtails for the brand-specific termination.
