As for the grips I really like them except the LED's are very hard to see in daylight, especially if you are wearing sunglasses. They need to be brighter. A small nit for an otherwise solid product.

Hi Guys 1st post, long time lurker etc
I think the LED's will b like this, so that @ nite they don't draw ur vision towards them & become a distraction, Vehicle Manufacturers will be wary of poss lawsuit's resulting from this

Due to my being a 'softy' I have Heated Gloves, the heating elements are on the back so they stop the 'wind-chill'. If i had 'hand protectors i would poss use heated grips but this way when i swop between bikes, i only need a plug on ea bike = cheaper plus i can get a battery for in my pocket to run the gloves if i'm not on the bike

Blinking Continuously?

I just finished installing the KTM brand hetaed grips, really excited to extend my rides on these colder days. I do have a problem with the current set-up...all the LEDs are blinking. Hold the button down for 3 seconds and the unit turns off...

Not sure if I hooked it up wrong (ACC2: Black/Red (bike) to Red (Grip) and Brown (Bike) to Black(grip)) or if I am not operating the button right...as in this moron cant push a button. LOL

Any ideas? And many apologies for blatant highjacking...

Thanks from the Siesta's garage of Noobdom

Mine blink for several seconds after switching on. Number of LEDs blinking = the last heat level setting. Stops blinking after a few moments and are steady on until I change the level. You obviously have pwr, do the grips get hot?

If only it could be that easy. The LEDs continue to blink long enough for the engine to warm. The grips are not getting warm. Is there a fault table for the grips? I remember reading about a constant blue LEd meaning not enough power?

In any case thanks for the suggestions.


Addendum:

After one or two beers and a little head scratching, I came upon the problem, didn't hook the grips to power correctly. Beer really does make everything better...

Thanks Gordon for the suggestions, sometimes stoopid needs a minute to clear...

You definitely need heat shrink tube.

Mine had some adhessive on them but I would never rely on it. Heat shrinking tube is the way to go over the glue. Just make sure you clean the bars properly with alcohol or cleaning benzine. Sticky glues can get soft when warmed up and start sliding in the summer.
Another fix could be to wrap tightly with small tie wraps. In this case make sure the locking of the wraps are at the points your hand leaves free when holding the gas side.
Cheers.

Have the KTM Grips for a few weeks, these have made commuting and weekend rides pretty nice. Cozy, real cozy.
