Does anyone have heated grips pigtail harness part no. ?

I went to Suzuki looking for the pig tail part no. and they cannot come up with it. This is for the auxilliary connector to run the heated grips ,,,, in my case they are Kimpex.

I found the pig tail way up under the tank so that was a big part of it or so I thought.

Thanks

YOU ARE THE MAN, YOU ARE THE MAN, YOU ARE THE MAN.

Heavy, you have helped me before and did again, you pushed me to LOOK instead of whine. Thanks again.

So with that ,can I get your opinion on which is the best way to do the heater installation. Place the heaters under the grips or on the outside. If outside and over the stock grip, what would be a good material to cover the heaters with? I thin wrap of some sort glued to the heater?

Your imagination on seeing how to do things is, well, pretty cool.

Thanks

Glad to help.

I used the Symtec grip heater kit on my Strom.



They attach to the bars, under the grips. Only modification I did was to wrap the clutch side of the handlebars with insulating pipe wrap before I put the heating element on. This keeps the heater from direct contact with the handlebar so it doesn't act like a heat sink. Basically, it allows the clutch side to warm up the same as the throttle side.

http://www.symtec-inc.com/New%20Motorcycle%20Page.htm

I'm using the ProGrip 714 grips and, on low, the Symtecs are very warm. I bet, with a more solid grip design they would be even hotter. I doubt I'll ever use the high setting...I'd be afraid to melt my grips. :lol:



Good luck with it.

If you never use the high setting, think about wiring the grips in series instead of in parallel. You will use less power that way and be able to use both the high and low settings.

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=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

They say the Symtecs have different wattages for the clutch and throttle side.

I found a post stating the following:

Clutch = 24 @ hi and 14 @ low

Throttle = 18 @ hi and 9 @ low

I intend to use a Heat-troller variable heat controller and was going to cover the clutch side of the handle bar with heat shrink tubing to isolate the handle bar from the heater. Good idea.

Heavy, is that the insulation tape you were talking about? not a roll of tape but a heat shink tape that covers the whole handle bar. Seems like atight fit by the time you get the heater and the insulation tape alos crammed in underneath the grip.

Seems like I'm making a simple mole hill in mount fuji .....

I've used the (reflective) metal tape from HVAC systems before on the clutch side; don't have any empirical data to prove that it works or doesn't, but it made sense.
