Heated grips
« on: April 18, 2019, 10:17:32 am »
So it appears that the throttle side heated grip has stopped working. :(

Has anyone tried this "operation" before?

Did it work for you? Is there any place that I can contact that might have grips other than BMW? R3k seems a bit steep for a piece of plastic..

That soldering fix worked temporarily for me as there where some others breaks along the rest of the heating pad. I landed up getting a new heating pad from AliExpress and founds some OEM grips from Suzuki South in CT. You can otherwise get 2 sets of generic grips from Trac-Mac and just use the Throttle grips, as heated grip rubbers have a larger diameter.

There is a whole thread in it somewhere

A whole thread here on wilddogs?

Any idea who started it? Did you post in it?

Had about 3 breaks in the element on my clutch side. Soldered 3 strands of copper wire in with the idea that it is stuffed can't screw it up more.
But managed to repair and must say so far no issues
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy shit...... WHAT A RIDE"!!!!!!!
