I have searched and searched but I cannot find a thread I was reading (on this site I think) that showed step by step a member installing heated grips. The method that he used was to electric tape elements on the stock grips and then put grip puppies over that.

Can anyone recall where that thread is or what it is called? Please don’t flame, I really did several searches both in here and on Google to no avail.

Thanks

Wanted installation steps for heated grips

I agree where did the instruction for installing the heat elements under the Grip Puppies ?

I want to install some before it's too cold out.

Also some links to buy the elements

Once you go to grip heaters.................. You can't understand how you rode without them. My first pair and now I have to have them.

That's how I have mine installed. Not sure if there's any specific thread???? The pics are on my Photobucket account which I cannot access at work.

I just put the grip heaters over the stock grips, wrapped some elcectrical tape over them to help hold them in place, slid the grip puppies over them and wired them up to the factory grip connection. I also added a heat troller to fine tune the heat.

Has worked well for 23k miles, love the heat!!!!

Where did you get your Symtec grip heaters w/Heattroller? Any best online site to recommend? Specific model?

I have the Aerostitch grip heaters and they work well (although a bit unbalanced, even with additional tape work on the clutch side). I must admit, I'm not impressed (not the brand, just heated grips per se). My problem may be the lack of handguards, but the damn grips could be putting out more heat than a gas grill and it wouldn't help my finger TIPS one bit. I'd buy a glove with all the heat trace at the tips and then rely on the heated grips.

YMMV

As most (if not all) heated gloves only heat the back of your hand and fingers, I like to use the grip heaters AND gloves when the going gets cold (like it will very soon be up here).

Cheers
