    I'm got the KTM heated grips, four way adjustable- small very compact control unit, I still have to put them on- will do it tomorrow. I will use the factory Yamaha heated grip harness.

    I got them from ktmtwins.com for $99. Others are using them and seem to like them, I shaved/sanded and smoothed the raised KTM letters of the control unit. lol

    Will put them on tomorrow and take some pics, it's gonna be 77F here over the weeken so they will come in handy. :lol3

    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.
