Heated Grip Kit
- Product Review (submitted on July 16, 2010):
- 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!
