HOW TO: Install Factory Heated Grips

How to: Install Factory Heated Grips

The Triumph instructions are decent but donít have a lot of detail. Plan to spend about 90 minutes start to finish. You would think the Throttle grip would take longer than the left grip, but that is not the case. You have to remove the radio controls and loosen the clutch perch in order to remove the left side switch cube.

Go to the web page to download the official instructions which I will base my steps on:

http://www.triumphinstructions.com/default.aspx

Enter the following part number to get the right set: A9638094

To get started, here is what you will need:

4 mm hex
5 mm hex
#2 Phillips
#3 Phillips
T-20 Torx
T-25 Torx
Straight pick

Iíve added comments to each step where needed so you donít need the factory service manual.

Step by Step

Step 1: Before you disconnect the battery, open the stowage box. Once you disconnect the negative cable, the stowage box will not open.

Step 2: Use the 5 mm hex to remove the screw on the outside of the stowage box and the one on the inside of the box. You will have the pull the clutch in to clear the handlebar when pulling the box out of the body.



There are 3 plugs to remove to get the stowage box out of the way. The cover wire is simple to squeeze and unplug. The 12 v socket is just removed. If you have a USB, you have to remove the silver metal clip and whole USB assemble pulls loose. The stowage box uses two rubber retainer plugs just like the battery cover so you have to lift it up and back to remove it after the screws are out. You also have to remove the bar end weights with a 4 mm hex. A socket works best as you need a little leverage to break loose the threadlock.



Step 3: To remove the right side switch cube, there are three #2 Phillips screws to remove on the back side. This is pretty simple



Step 4: Hold the gold colored spring assembly with your left hand and rotate the throttle with your right like you are gassing it to turn the throttle past the retainer. Once past the retainer, the throttle grip slides right off.



Step 5: There is a recess in the bottom of the handlebar that you run the cable in.

Step 6: No comments

Step 7: When you are putting the switch cube back on, make sure you donít pinch the grip cable.

Step 8: I used a plastic trim bar to gentle push the wires inside the grip so they do not interfere with the operation of the throttle and bar end weight.
Step 9: To engage the grip with the spring assembly, you need to rotate the gold spring assembly about 90 degrees like you are twisting the throttle. This will allow you to line up the throttle grip lugs and slot into the spring housing. It really only fits one way and this picture shows the lugs are toward the back of the bike.



Steps 10 Ė 12: No comments

Step 13: Once the grip is engaged in the spring housing, give it a couple of twists to make sure it operates as before. You will feel it engage and it should feel like it always did, nice and smooth turn with a snap back when you let go.



Steps 14 Ė 16: No comments

Step 17: This is where the Triumph instructions donít provide enough detail. To remove the left hand switch cube, you have to remove the radio controls and loosen the clutch perch. This will give you access to the bottom screw. Here are the pictures. First remove the two radio cover screws with a 4 mm hex. They are on the backside and located diagonally.



Then remove the three radio backer screws with the T-25



Then you loosen the two clutch perch screws with a 5 mm hex.



You donít have to worry about lining things back up, because Triumph put a small circular depression on the handlebar and a line on the clutch perch you simply have to line up when you re-assemble.



Step 18: Use the T-20 to remove the two screws that are located at the front and back of the grip.



Step 19: The channel for the cable is still on the bottom of the handle bar, but on this side, it fits a little differently through the switch cube. I used a piece of electrical tape to hold it in place under the switch cube and that made it easier to install. Keep in mind the grip wire goes through the channel on the outside of the switch cube, but comes out the switch cube with the other wires.




Steps 20 Ė 23: No comments


Step 24: There is an audible click when you get the plugs seated properly in the terminal blocks.


Steps 25 Ė 30: The plugs can only be installed one way. Before I reinstalled with stowage box, I hooked up the battery and started the bike to test the grips. They worked great and warmed up quickly. I read on this site that the heated grip indicator on the dash should work when you turn them on, but I found that is not the case with my 2015. I may have to have the dealer activate them as the DealerTool does not do it either.


Reassembly: Everything goes back the way you took it apart. I would recommend using threadlock on the bar end weights so they donít come loose. The USB assembly on goes back on one way and the clip is really easy to slide back on.

Good luck.

nice write-up but you forgot to mention the link plug under the glove box that will activate the icon on the LCD screen

Maybe his Trophy doesn't have it !

Earlier Trophy's didin't have the Link and the Instrument Panel icons had to be activated by the Dealer.

Later models had the Link Plug ( which is why there are / were two different kits available for sale ).

I did cover the link connector in step 28 above. However, it did not do anything on my bike. I have a 2015 and ordered the correct Grip part number. I may have a bad link connector and I will test at some point. The heated grips work great and that is 95% of what matters to me. Next time I need to do maintenance I will delve into the issue and try to resolve.

Awesome! I was waiting for this ever since you posted your "How to Install the Triumph Top Box". I plan to do both but have the box of parts for the heated grips sitting on my desk and now I am ready to go. This is really a great help so thanks for putting this together!!
