    I haven't finished the job yet but its totally doable at home. I already have the heat mode unlocked. I'm not sure if the dealer did it when they did the tech pack or not.
    The connecter for the new control box is plugged into a dummy near the bottom right of the fuse box. Pull the fuse box, install the new holder in place of the fuse box, heated grips connector connects at the bottom of the new control module and then fuse box sits on top. Just need to take seat and battery cover off. I had to move the ground wire for my battery a bit for a little more room to work. The grips are super easy to remove, just look for the small set screw on the left hand grip. It took me time to install the right grip but thats because it was late and my brain wasn't working and i couldn't figure out how the wires were to be ran exiting the throttle housing. It helps to visualize if you remove the throttle tube completely and then drop the top half of the throttle housing into place. You can easily see how the little plastic piece that holds the wires sits. Tonight i'll pull the headlight and finish wiring it all up (plugging it in).

    Some pics with the mounting prices would be awesome

    Doesn't sound too easy for newbies...

    No, do not remove the tank. I actually tried to removed the battery tray thinking the plug for the new controller box was under there. I was too stupid to realize ktm made it easy and accessible and that they would take the time to actually mount a dummy cap for it.

    I assume the entire throttle tube gets replaced with a new unit integrated into the RH grip? Cause ain't nothing easy getting the old grip off the existing tube....

    Yes, very easy.
    Roll back the rubber flange and locate the small set screw, this is for the left side. Right side is just undo 2 phillips screw in the bottom of the throttle tube housing.
    The grips are whole units.
    Here is all I could find as far as instructions but it'll show how to remove the grips and give an overall idea. This is for the 1290 and 890 Duke I think.
    Go here https://www.ktm.com/en-int/service/manuals.html search for this part number 60712964044.

    I could have sworn I read somewhere in this forum that the plug for the heated grips on the 890 was not in the headlight bucket.

    Yes, koekeroe made some post about it but I thought he had a duke for some reason. When I went back I saw he had the 890 rally I think.

    Shouldn't the grips plug into the new controller you installed?
    Maybe the other socket on the controller is for the heated seat? The wiring diagram is not great

    Not that I can tell. They plug into each other and then there is a 2 pin plug. I can’t find the mate to that 2 pin plug.

    Ah, yes. That is what plugs into the module. the grips themselves have to plug into each other and then into something else. Reference my post earlier with the service manual “instructions” from ktm to see what I mean.

    I have the service manual, but this installation does not seem to be covered. I'll see if I can find any reference to the connector.
