since 2013 second time heated grip goes out
« on: December 14, 2015, 05:27:40 pm »
Just ordered a replacement left hand heated grip.  If my recall, this is the second time (? third) that the grips stop working.  Anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?

Thanks
Jordan

I've heard of the Heated Throttle Grip packing up - usually because the wire has not been routed
quite right and gets trapped as the Twist Grip rotates causing the insulation to wear through
shorting out the wire(s), but not the left hand one.

Are there any signs of the wire being trapped on any sharp edges ( if so try smoothing them off )
or is it the actual element in the Heated Grip that is failing ?

May I also draw your attention to the TWO YEAR Warranty on genuine Triumph Parts !  :169:

Full details of the Warranty are on the Triumph Web Site here :

Cheers  :821:

Hi, I've had the same problem with the left grip. I found one of the wires coming out hole in the metale bar cuts the wire in half . I did a solder and shrink wrap on broken wire.fixed both grips .so far it's working
