Hot Grips Install Advice
Hi all. I recently joined the two-wheel revolution this year and have already put on 8K on my '05 Wee Strom since June! This is my first bike and I love the ride. I took the MSF course and learned a great deal. I plan on riding year round (I commute 45 miles to work one-way), so I am beginning to outfit the bike for cold weather riding.
I just got in my Hot Grips and would like to ask your advice.
1. Where is a good place to mount the standard toggle switch that came with the grips? The instructions state to drill a 1/2 inch hole, but where? I am nervous about drilling into my bars to mount. Any pics on where/how to install?
2. I plan on using the OEM connection to wire in the grips. Other than removing the tank, is there a better or easier way to get to the wiring?
3. Any other advice on the best install method?
