    Right! I don’t understand how they dare to put some stickers without my consultancy… :rolleyes

    They look very different to the WC ones I’ve seen. Are you sure they come from Yamaha?

    These are the WC stickers I know

    The Worldcrosser kit comes to the dealers separately from the bike and the dealer has to fix it.

    Obviously this dealer in England doesn’t ask me how to fix them and he did it in the wrong way…. :lol3 :lol3

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

    Using these Ebay uber cheapo heating elements
    [​IMG]

    They cost about $6 a set shipped!

    Using this to control them..

    [​IMG]

    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....:freaky

    Did you JB weld your doohickey?

    As a fellow KLR owner you just brought a small tear to my eye.
    God bless you.

    Sounds like an awful idea.

    For twice your investment ($60) you can buy a set of Oxford heated grips with a controller; which will undoubtably look better, feel better, and last longer than some home brewed parts project.

    If I was going to install the grip puppies anyway whats the difference?? Oxford heated grips seem to have a poor reliability rating anyway....at least the controller does.

    And the best part is...if it doesn't work I can put back to stock in a matter of minutes and I'm out $30....

    Its a KLR thing....you wouldn't understand....:1drink

    I disagree. The cheapies with grip puupies over them work great and are very simple to install and look great,

    I know a lot of people that have gone this route with great success. Most of the people I know just use the manual switch and not a thermostat.
