A flexible, adhesive, wrap-around heating element with printed-circuit-type elements that fit between the handlebar and grip, keeping your digits from turning into frozen turkey feet of limited utility during cold weather rides. We all remember what that phenomenon feels like, right? Comes with two elements, wiring, resistor, and an on/off, hi/lo switch. Super, almost unbelievably effective, and a great comfort as well as a safety enhancer. For 12V systems. 3 amps/40 watts.

- Not Sure What I Missed...Review by ChiHoff
I'm really disappointed. Everybody else seems to have had an easy and profitable experience with these. But, I've installed them and, so far, I can't feel a thing from them.
The wiring diagram was very easy to follow and I followed it to the letter. But, I feel no heat.
I will try to run continuity tests along all of my connections, hoping that I simply have a short, somewhere. But, if anybody else had trouble and finally found a solution, I'd love to hear it.
Hoping I can post a more positive update, soon. (Posted on 9/10/16)
- Heat for 2007 R6Review by drunknchi
- Should have done this long time ago. I ride year round and didn't want to shell out 100+ on heated gloves. Had trouble wiring it up and finally got it relayed. Definitely worth it. (Posted on 11/30/13)
- Easy to UseReview by KIERAN
- These were easy to wire in and use. I just finished 6500 miles, Seattle to Alaska, and back. six days of rain with lots of wind. They worked well. (Posted on 7/10/12)
- love heated gripsReview by Am.E
- This heated grip kit works great. I've purchased it twice now to put on two separate bikes. I originally installed them on my Kawasaki 650R, and have ridden for a season with no problems. I've since bought a new bike, and I'm putting these on it right from the beginning. (Its not really feasible to get the heat elements back off the bars once you install them in order to transfer to a different bike. Fortunately, these are inexpensive enough that I just bought a second set.). I also don't use the switch that comes with it, but wired the grips so that I can use the two channel variable controller that controls my heated jacket and gloves. I use the same channel that controls the gloves, which I don't use very much, to also heat the grips. Its a nice clean install with one controller for my jacket and the grips, and I love it. Highly recommend. (Posted on 6/20/12)
- Simple InstallReview by Larry
- This is the second heated grip that I have had and this one works just as good as the first and for a lot less money. Some kits go for 4 times and more than what these cost and while I don't know how those work, I doubt that they are any better. As far as I am concerned you cannot beat the quality especially, when matched to the price. (Posted on 3/9/12)

- heated grip kitReview by Rednick
I have put these on every bike that I have owned for the past 25 years. They don't break,
they are very affordable, and they help extend your riding season.
BUY EM ! They are GREAT ! (Posted on 12/26/11)
- Good stuffReview by SamRus
Great hand grips!
I installed these on my 2007 Ninja 250 EX, and they work great! Rode four 25 mile rides in 30° F dry weather, and they did really well! I had to switch from Hi to Lo setting, because it was getting too hot...
I also have hand mitts that go over handlebars and gloves, so those together with these grips work really well!
Although, I must say, if you take the hand mitts off, and use the heated grips alone, the windchill sips through the gloves, and even though your palms will be burning, the outside of your fingers will still be cold. So strongly recommend these grips in combination with some hand-mitts! Unbeatable duo :-) (Posted on 12/21/11)
- excellent economical heated grip padsReview by jcollier
- I hastely put these heating pads on three bikes because I was tired of freezing my hands. So I put them on the top of the grip and tied them down with tie wraps. Not pretty looking but extremely effective. Without them, the freezing has wekened my throttle arm to the point where I am now doing physiotherapy to recover the strength in that right arm. In fact, I believe the heat from these pads is accelerating my recovery. On low setting with gloves on, and its 32F, my hands are extremely comfortable.For the low cost, its good value.

- Warm fingers againReview by Eli54
- Since the Beemer is sidelined and I'm on the vintage Evinrude I needed these! (Posted on 11/19/11)
- Love 'em!Review by DK
- I should buy these things by the gross. I put them on every bike I buy, and on some friends bikes. I mostly put them on off-road and dual sport bikes, and I rarely have trouble with reliability. These are not as fancy as factory installed heated hand grips, and the imbalance between throttle and clutch side is there (to some extent) no matter how you wire them, but they are still great. They are not only a help in cold weather, but they are life savers in cool wet weather as they will help dry out your gloves as you ride. (Posted on 10/23/11)
- Alternate installationReview by ggrimes2
- I've now installed 5 sets not bad if you're handy with tools. First set on wife's 07 Harley. Harley is different; throttle rides on bar so I installed backwards inside the handle bar was worried about heat transfer but they still get plenty hot. I've done a couple more in the same fashion if style dictates by drilling a small hole in bars and protecting with heat shrink. Wife's have been on bike for two years now and still going strong. Wired through cig lighter on her bike as this is a switched source so battery cannot be run down if you forget to shut off. (Posted on 8/5/11)
- nice productReview by Mitchell
I hear about these grip heaters from a friend. I got them and after revising my installation plan 3 times i setteld on the following. I ride an 02 Meanstreak, the left handle bar has a plug in it so I couldnt put the heater inside the tube. I ended up putting in on the bar under the grip, but i slid the element up inside the switch cover, so that the wires would be protected. I did the same on the right side, the element is thin enough that is doesnt cause too much drag for throttle return. with this set up I dont have to worry about the wires breaking, and to protect the element from abrasion i put a couple wraps of electrical tape around them where the switch housing clamps around them. The switch is UGLY, i need to change that at a later date. I ride an hour into work and the morning temps have in the low to mid 20's, before the heaters my fingertips would be frozen even when wearing my heavy Carhart gloves, now they are just slightly chilled.
I am very happy with my purchase and will be getting another set to put on my wife's bike. the only thing I would like to see changed, (besides the switch) is that the also be offered in a length about 2 inches longer than the current ones, it would heat the entire grip for those of us who install them the way I have done on my bike.

- I installed these, and like themReview by Dan
- I recently ordered these to go under my stock grips for cold mornings. I often ride early in the morning, but don't like carrying both sets of gloves, so I figured I'd give this a try. I decided to go the extra mile and custom make a nice harness for the heaters (I made quick disconnects, soldered everything, wrapped it all, heat shrinked it, and then used an OEM type cable sheath to make it look as "Factory" as possible. My only gripe with this kit is that the switch is hideous. I went to Radio Shack and got one to my liking (with an LED indicator) for like 3 bucks, so no biggie. The install was pretty easy, actually. The included (Aerostitch) instructions gave the helpful advice of using contact cleaner to get the grips off, which worked well. All in all, I was able to do what I feel is a professional quality job, at a fraction of the cost of the full handgrips. It remains to be seen how hot the resistor will get, but I don't anticipate that being a problem. Nice product! (Posted on 7/16/10)
- Customer ServiceReview by customerservice
Thank you for your comments on the heated grips. When the resistor is used, the best place to mount it is to the frame or other metal part of the bike, using zip-ties. In the installations we've done on our own bikes (we've done about six of them over the years...) we've always attached it to the frame, or to a fork leg.

- Just put these onReview by jimdave
- They work great, but what do you do with the resistor. It gets supper hot and will melt stuff. Looks like a hazard. (Posted on 1/21/10)
- Ordering my second set. M...Review by Duggan Harman
Ordering my second set. My first were great but I changed the bars out on my Road King Classic and ruined one of the elements in the process.
Overall a great product and one that I will not ride without. I ride almost year around and find I use these daily throughout the colder months and even during the summer occasionally for those early morning rides with thin gloves.
Install tip -- After having some issues with the throttle side clearance I settled on the following solution: mount the elements inside the bars. First run a string inside the bars and out one of the pre-drilled holes where the clip snaps in. Use the string to pull the wires through. Before you insert the elements, use some fiberglass insulation to form a plug which you can push inside the bar to seal off the airflow. Then roll the element and slide it inside the bar and then using your fingers, seat the adhesive to the inside of the bars. This way you have no problem with throttle sleave binding and you can change grips without worrying about damaging the elements. It also, since the wiring is internal, saves wear and tear on the wire/element connections. The heating ability does not seem to be compromised at all. This may not work for all makes but is a slick install on a Harley. (Posted on 6/13/08)

- Replacing my 6 year old set with exactly the same. Last set served me well, just wore them out. Worth their weight in gold on those cold mornings. Louis C. (Posted on 5/5/08)
- Great product. Works as a...Review by Victor Landau
- Great product. Works as advertised and better. I was able to retain my stock grips. Can't see or feel the warmers until they are needed. I'm able to ride in 40 degree weather with light gloves and be in total comfort. A bargain for $25.00. (Posted on 5/5/08)
