Yeah, typical asshole answer. It only takes a little more effort to give a helpful response.

I've not install the Yamaha heated grip kit, but I did install some aftermarket grips (BikeMaster, $45.00) on my 2012 which work very well. I had to move my throttle some as these grips are shorter than stock. The little prong on the inside of the throttle housing can be filed away, then you can place the throttle housing where you want it. As for the rest I can't tell you, but I hope what little I did tell you was helpful.
I went the route of the grip liners made by Symtec. Inexpensive and work with any grip either stock or aftermarket. I've had them on my last three bikes including the S10. Never had a failure. I've got 40k miles on the kit I installed on my VFR. The switch will wear out before the heating elements I think.

I want to apologize to everyone for criticizing the way someone answered a question. I should have just given as good an answer as I could and left it at that.

It does pay to shop around, as SparkyMcGee said. I found the BikeMaster heated grips for $44.99 (free shipping) on Amazon. Super easy to install, work well and have a nice push-button 5-way switch. They are a little short, which is just what I wanted and I love the texture, or grip deign, of them.

It’s great to be able to work on our own bikes and part of what this forum is about is helping other riders do that.

Extended clutch/brake lines...anyone need them?

I have a set of RideOnADV extended clutch/brake lines for risers in the classifieds. In 12 hours they were buried 8 pages deep so I figured I'd throw it out here.

Heated Grips on 2014 base

Hey thanks guys for the helpful replies to my questions. By way of explanation I ordered the grips through my local dealer and when I went to pick them up they said "Two grips in a box that don't look right". It's not what I expected either. The picture on the website showed a whole kit. It turned out they had a kit in stock with a different part#. I never really got to read the directions with the two grips. But it did get me to thinking hey maybe it is just plug and play with the the switchgear on the bike. The throttle housing on the bike reenforced that thought. That is why I thought I'd ask you fine folks. Did you ever notice that the first to reply to a question is so often some keyboard commando? Thanks again

2014 OEM grip heaters

Lets try this again...I am buying a 2014 Yamaha Super Tenere non ES (so I can put a HD rear shock for 2upriding) and want to have the same grip heaters that the ES comes standard with. Couple people have said it is possible. My question is has anyone done it and if so what part # do I buy and how do I get the instrument panel to recognize the grips so I can control them. If it has not been done yet how do we know that it is even possible.
Definitely do not want the various aftermarket grip heaters as they all look kludgy to me.

Can anyone help?

I believe that scoobynut on the YST forum has installed the Yamaha heated grips on his non ES 2014. It uses the new instrument panel to control them, just as the ES does. I don't know if he is on this forum, but you might inquire over there.

That is interesting, but wouldn't it be just as easy to use heated gloves?

Oh, and another noob to S10 question.
I was told that this bike has a "different" battery in it and a regular battery tender cannot be used.
The world will end or something....

Is it a Li-po battery or something? And where do I buy one of these super duper chargers at?

The location is "different", but the battery (OEM anyway) isn't anything special. Mine's had a tender dongle hanging off it for several thousand miles now.

Yes, you can use heated gloves, if you remembered to bring them and don't mind the hassle of putting on bulky gloves and associated wiring whenever you think it might be cold. Did you pack them with you on a multi day trip? Many find that heated grips are very handy, as the yare always there at the touch of a button. it doesn't have to be freezing to use them. You may find that it doesn't feel very cool while sitting in the garage, but when you start riding with your normal gloves, you realize that it is cooler than you thought. It is nice to be able to turn on the heated grips, even if it is on low, to take the chill off. Heated gloves are fine and many folks find them comfortable in very cold temps, but many find that the convenience of heated grips, which are always available, provide comfort in a large range of temps.

As for the battery, a battery tender is fine, it is a normal battery.

Good to know on the battery tender.
On the grips, it just seems to me that it was a bit of a PITA to get them to work with the Yamaha switchgear, and it may be easier to just install the wiring to plug in heated gloves/jacket.

Well, it may not be any more of a PITA to plug the new grips into their associated connector than it is to install the wiring for heated gloves, plus once you do that, you are done.

that's exactly what I told you. I also told you the original grips you had were correct for the 2014. Had you read the instructions before posting you would have been fine. Your welcome

You may want to purchase the OEM heated grips and have the dealer install them. Make it part of the purchase deal

Maybe negotiate your best deal w/o mention of heated grips, then tell them you'll sign the deal if they give you the grips at dealer cost and install the without charge. I did this when I purchased my '12 and got the grips and installation free.

You've gotten a lot of oblique and snippy answers , but in case there remains any confusion, I think the 2014 heated grip kit (for the base model 2014 S10) does include only the grips/connectors and uses the built-in systems in the bike to control the grips. As to exactly what you have to do to "enable" the bike to recognize the grips and put the appropriate menus and controls in the dash, I don't know, but it is probably "plug and play" - plug in the grips and it all starts to work. (I don't think the S10 has a chassis control computer and has any need to be "coded" to accessories.) I'm sure the instructions cover it. Several have installed the kit and it works fine, so there is no doubt that if you order the kit for the 2014 model, you'll get something that works and gives you the same heated grips of the 2014 ES.

It is confusing the Yamaha only puts up a single picture of the old 2012-2013 grip kit on their web site when they two kits are so drastically different. Yamaha is pretty sloppy with how they spec their accessories.

It is certainly possible to fit the 2012-2013 grip kit to 2014, but I bet the wiring is different so it probably wouldn't be plug-and-play. You definitely want to return back to the 2014 kit as the old kit is a bit cludgy with the controller on the mirror stalk. The new one integrates much more elegantly.
