    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Heated Grips WARMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM :thumb
    Wish I had some. Used to have em on my K75S, but sold that bike this spring to a buddy of mine. Everytime we ride together I covet those grips and he reminds me that he has em and I don't. :rad

    I have Kimpex grip inserts. they come with a chunky 3 position switch. Hi/off/Low. The high (i think) setting has a resister on the positive wire. The resister heats up a lot so I never use that setting.

    They installed easy. it is basically a thin clear piece of plastic with adhesive on one side and thin metal elements in the middle. I wired mine to a unused connection in the headlight housing. If I can do it anyone can.

    The only bad thing is the throttle side heats up more because the element does not sit directly on the metal bar.

    crap!! I just typed all this and there was a link....:dutch :baldy
