heated grips

Yes you can!
My heated grips and engine management is on one leg, the other is for lights and heated vest!
Just don't ask me how! I'm good w/ everything except electricity! I fumbled through the process and got it right somehow!

Figure on about 36 watts for heated grips. You can run them on AC or DC, although most variable controllers will only work on DC. If you're running a radiator fan you can hook up the grips on that 100w circuit, since you likely won't be using both at the same time.

The price tag for the tanks im not sure on .. bout the same as a Australian safari tank in the US i would say ....You could email Safari and ask about availability ....thats the easy part .... mounting them and setting the bike up for the tanks is the hard part ... and i would say once done there is no turning back they have to run a low pipe ....the coolant bottle needs to be moved ...bashplate is a custom only fit ... the list goes on

You could pm Digga1111 and ask him all your questions as he's the owner ...and mate ill tell ya ... once you start him going on about his bike ... you'll never shut him up

why's it need to?
I dont see any reason why to and it would seem it would be more prone to getting hit/damaged etc, so just curious...

i dont know for sure yet, i reckon i have added maybe 8-12kgs over stock dry, the tanks are surposed to be 48l, so a little heavier wet.

cause it goes that fast the centrifigul pull of the wheel will pull the brake line into the spokes and chop it up

Tank Capacity

Maybe I missed where it was stated, so how much does that tank hold? Pretty impressive load I imagine.
