heated grips

  1. General V-Strom Discussion
    Hello, Vstrommers, this is my first post so apologies if I am posting in the wrong area. I have a Vstrom 1000 2014, the desert model and it has genuine heated grips. We are pretty warm here in Australia at the moment, and I took the opportunity on not such a hot morning to go for a ride. I have...

    Anyone got any? Suposedly with a beak and spoked wheels as an option.
  3. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    This spring I had my mechanic install Oxford heated grips on my 2009 DL650 with 36,000 miles. We connected them to the V-Strom's factory heated grip connector. We tested them while stationary and they worked correctly, but I never had occasion to use them on the road (it being spring/summer)...

    Hi, folks, I added heated handlegrips to my 2005 WeeStrom. However, they do not turn off when the ignition is off, so there is a danger I will drain my battery. In fact, I presume there is a 100% chance this will happen. :green_lol: Can anyone point me to a good tutorial about how to wire it...

    I know personal preference is most important when deciding about gear, but wondering what everyone's experience/preference is. Trying to find out the pros/cons of each. Sound off if you've used either or both and what your experience has been. Thanks.

    I have a 2012 DL650 with OEM heated grips. The only two times I've used them, the left grip gets really toasty and the right one is only luke-warm. Has anyone else had this problem? Are there any suggestions for troubleshooting? I'd like to take care of this before the weather turns. Thanks!

    I've got an '09 Wee (with ABS) and am looking into using a horn lead attached to the unused heated grip connector to get switched power to a DC power outlet I'm installing. I know there are several posts here about locating the connector, and I thought I had found it, but now I'm thinking what...

    I'm planning on installing pro grip 714s on my wee to replace the OEM grips. When I reinstalled the OEMs over the symtec heated grip elements I put on a couple of months ago, I had trouble getting the throttle side grip over the throttle tube, and the end result isn't what I'd like. The...

    I have a 2007 650dL with ABS. I wanted to buy heated grips, hand guards and extra rims with sprockets and caliper. Anyone recommend heated grip brand? I want to take this bike to South America and want to get off road tires or buy a second set of rims - can anyone recommend an in between tire...

    Now that I have had my heated grips (Symtecs) for a bit, I've noticed a few minor flaws. One big issue I have is that the stock kit uses piggyback quick disconnects to attach to the rocker switch. These do not seem all that resistant to the conditions, as the terminals are not able to be...

    Does anyone have a nice article with pictures that detail the installation of the OEM heated grips on the V-Strom 650? I need some good visuals. Thank you, Jake
