Are they Suzuki heated grips? If so, they are wired in series. A bad connection or controller/switch will knock out both grips. So will a break in the wire inside a grip. One wire from each grip connect together. The remaining free ones are connected to earth and the controller.

Other brands usually are connected in parallel. If both are out, the controller/switch or the connection to power are the likely culprits. A problem in one grip or its wiring will not affect the other grip.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

A recent posting spoke to loose connectors causing failures. I had a weak left side, just unplug, re-plug the connectors made it better.
