Re: Replacement grip w/ Heated grips


Thanks for the reply.  I have picked up a set of grips, where the one is
larger than the other.  I haven't been able to fit it on the bike as it has
been raining and I don't have a garage.  My only question is if the larger
grip from the pair I bought fits the left grip, wouldn't I need a larger one
still for the throttle grip on my bike?  The throttle grip isn't torn at this
point so if I don't replace it I will have grips that don't match, but if I
remove the throttle grip I am afraid that I would need a grip that would be
larger than the larger grip in the pair I bought (if that makes any sense to

  Just pick up 2 pairs of standard grips from any bike shop.  One grip will be
larger then the other. The large one is for the right hand side, the throttle.
The other is smaller, designed for the bare metal bar on the left side. You
want to use the 2 designed for the throttle, toss the 2 lefts.  They will fit
your heated grips just fine.  Of course you will not have BMW grips anymore,
so if this distresses you, I advise against it.

  You must be careful removing the old grips as the heating wires can be
easily damaged.  If they are damaged, don't fret.  You can simply overlay
snowmobile heating elements on top of the old heating wires, and solder them
to the existing wiring.
