    Heated Grips

    Hi everyone,
    I am thinking to put on Heated Grips, as this was an optional feature that was not chosen by the first owner, so I am after advice, suggestions and recommendations by you all.

    I found these ones in case anyone is using them for some advice and feedback or in case someone was in the market like I am.

    More adjustment range than the factory, the only thing I would caution you on is to make sure you use a switched source, preferably one that is only energized when the engine is running.  You could connect the trigger source for a relay connected to the battery from one of the fuses that is only hot with the engine running and be good to go.

    Have you looked at OEM grips? I bought them a couple years ago. Rather than buying the entire kit, I bought the components from their pricing list and total came to a little over $100. At the time the kit was $250, which made an easy choice. The grips have worked fine and the only problem was I ended up with an extra wire shunt, which I thought one was needed for each grip. But only one is required to activate the dash icon. Might be worth a look. :187:

    They've discovered the pricing discrepancy and it's no bargain over the kit anymore.

    CHECK first with the Seller that they are compatible
    with the Trophy "Ride by Wire" throttle system,
    with locating lugs that engage in the Throttle Sensor !  :028:

    I try to stick with OEM equipment when it interacts with the electrical system if at all possible.  The OEM grip kits have gotten somewhat more reasonable.   Here are two examples:

    on ebay   https://www.ebay.com/itm/TRIUMPH-TROPHY-HEATED-GRIPS-A9638094/173666431501?epid=1023351738&hash=item286f53720d:g:ycYAAOSwRF1cAAnN 

    Bike Bandit  https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts/detail/triumph/a9638094/b3137583?m=158197&sch=967655 

    Candidly mine do not get that hot but they work with the installed switches and have indications on the display.

    If you install the OEM yourself, just be careful to read the directions  carefully especially regarding the throttle side and the amount of wire play that needs to be allowed.

    Ride Safe

    I bought a Triumph kit off of Amazon for about $180 and it took about an hour to install.  I used the Triumph instructions and the How To from this site.  It was easy and the dash icon works as it should.  Anyone who can change oil and a headlight bulb should do fine.  Pay special attention as you disassemble the throttle side.  Just to make sure it goes back as it should.

    Mine get hot enough on the low setting that I've never even tried the high setting, even when riding with summer, vented gloves in 32 F.
