Any comments or experiences on fitting / using them etc?

TIA.

I'm trying the KLR owner method...cus I own a KLR.

Using these Ebay uber cheapo heating elements


They cost about $6 a set shipped!

Using this to control them..



About $5 shipped

My plan is to remove the knob from the case...mount the case elsewhere and mount the knob in a convenient location.

Install the heating pads on TOP of the OEM grips...slide on the heat shrink over them that's provided. shrink it....then install grip puppies on top of that....

All the wiring will go to the factory pigtail....

Total cost under $30....

I have no idea how well this will work....but for the money its worth a shot....
