Hey, I was just along for the ride. Ultimate responsibility for the duck lies with MathewC :1drink.

His suggestion was the roof of the Library of Congress, so count yourselves lucky.

If you don't have barkbusters, you might want to carry spare levers :D

Some things, like the gear shifter, have a tendency to break, but the KLR has been going so long that those have all been...

Yeah, mine's 15 years old. Also, Kawasaki's wiring doesn't exactly look over-engineered.

This isn't going to help the OP, but for the benefit of anyone researching heated grips in the future:

I will admit that part of it is that I just like elegant solutions.

I think I can also use it if I want to add a cigar-lighter socket or whatever the next juicy enhancement will be.

Didn't want to just tap into the tail-light (or whatever) directly in case that might overload the wiring, blow my fuses, or just not give the elements enough juice to get hot.

Also wanted to...

Success!

Ran a test wire from the pos. battery terminal to the 86 pin, as per Glepore, and the relay clicked loud and clear - I hadn't tapped into the brake-light wire, but of the two running to the...

Heated grips diagnosis question

I just installed Symtec under-grip heating elements on my KLR, and have so far failed to get any actual heat out of them. My diagnostic efforts have stalled.

I second those who nominated 33 in WV - hilarious fun that more than made up for bailing like a wuss on the Shenandoah 500 after Sunday lunch. Isn't that the one they call the Baby Dragon?
