Nice info page, I too installed the trackside grips look nice great feel clean install but no heat on the left and just lukewarm on the right. Cycle gear was great, as always, sent me out another set with return prepaid for the dysfunctional set. Hooked up replacements doing the whole install and while both worked this time and just a bit warmer still inadequate, can not feel the heat through summer leather gloves, had to return both. Waiting to see if they credit my account but these grips just do not get hot I suppose they would be ok with my kevlar knit gloves above fifty but I do not need heat then, when its 32F outside I need HEAT and want to turn it down. I checked the voltage it was 13.6 so juice was not the issue. I think they either have a really bad batch or skimped on what I guess was the nichrome wire used to heat the grips, too bad, I really like the big knob for adjustment no need to look, just by touch dial it up. Its just all the way up its still friggin cold.
PS I let them heat up first go round for a forty minute ride second set rpm at 2500 for 20 minutes and still tepid. I have a friend with the symtecs and they literally hurt on high with less warm up time.
