KTM factory heated grips question

Postby SpeedyR » Thu Sep 14, 2017 2:15 am

I have the factory heated grips on my bike. I bought the bike second hand, so I did not install them.

In the past I've put heated grips on bikes and could use any grip I wanted, the heater part was a wrap that was put on the bars and your grips went over them. Over the weekend the bottom portion of the grip got cut in it, and I'm not a fan of the grip anyway. Can I pull the grip off and put on my preferred grip, or is the heating element integrated into the actual grip??

anyone know?

I can fix the one I have it was a small cut but I would prefer different grips than the ones that it came with.. oh well.

In that case you'd best order yourself a set of after market grips from someone that makes the wrap type and buy the grips you prefer - of course they won't be integrated into the on board computer but a small switch is pretty easy to use. I have the OEM heated grips on mine and I like them a lot. Get plenty warm and work great.

I've installed heated grips on all of my bikes over the years, but having it in the menu is nice. i'll stick with the OE setup, but just wondered if I could swap out to new grips. I'll put the new grips on the super enduro instead. :)
