2013 Heated grips

Have the '13 heating elements changed from previous?

Removed my wimpy thin ones for some ProGrip Superbike gells.

Those look different than mine!
The old style was a flexible kapton coated element...
kinda like this:

I would suspect that yours is a much more robust design,
and will not fail as easily... but may not distribute heat quite as evenly...
but I think like it ...

PS: I think some other BMWs have used this design maybe it's now just being brought over to the twins?

If that is a photo of the '13 grip then yes, they have gone back to using a wound wire instead of a printed element in a plastic film (like Symtec or KTM aftermarket).

I wonder why they did that?
