Multi-level grip heat!

Recommended Posts

I'm sure I read through the manual but confess I completely missed that the three bars selectable from the handlebar controls can have their actual amount of heat set from the settings menu.

My two-bar/middle position was too hot at anything above 5 degrees C so I've lowered it to 3 from 4. The three-bar/top position was set to 7! I guess that's when you ride in -5 degrees C! I've reduced that to 5 which I reckon should be plenty if I'm out when it's freezing. :)

I have my 3 heat levels set to 3/5/7.  I have used level 2 a few times, but never needed level 3.  These grips get HOT!!

I didn't realize until now that you could set the temp... awesome. I used the stock settings, and the grips got so hot at 2 bars that i didn't go to 3 very often.

Just installed my Hotgrips using @Duke's method. Worked like a charm. Took'er out for the last pre-winter sleep spin around 5ish Celcius degrees yesterday with the grips set to 3/7/10... 10 heated things up right quick! Will be readjusting next spring to 3/5/7 as others have mentioned!

There was a ground frost today and the air temp gauge was down to 3 degreesC.

Had the grips on 3 bars, which is set to level 5 and my gloves didn't melt!

Reckon I will up that to 6 now and increase all the other levels a bit through to next March!

Excellent. Saw in another thread that you also tried the Heat Demons (I could be wrong)... you no like?

Could measure, but gonna ask anyway 😀... which Hot Grips Part# did you buy?

Bah! Whoops, I meant the Heat Demons. I used the set indicated in the other thread. My bad. Just a free user so can't edit it any further.

Just finished installing a set of factory heated grips, wanted the clean install and not need to add any switches. The install was straight forward and looks great when complete. Set the heat control at 3-5-7, haven't gone for a ride yet, will give feed back after the test ride.
