yamaha grip heaters/super easy

been wanting to do hot grips for awhile. so many on the market, some bulky and quite complex. well thanx to yamaha those days are long gone. these wire straight to the battery and have 15 amp fuse protection. the key: low voltage protection! forget to turn em off, they shut off. they sense any low voltage and they automatically turn off. they fit the concours perfectly. I had to loosen fairing on battery side, remove tank compartment. just snake your cables to right side , upper of the battery and reach down from tank side and grab em. I use high temp joint compound from my black widow header job. just make sure your sealant is heat resistant. yamaha made it super sano as all the controls are right on the grip assembly. they have to be programmed for 600cc or bigger which takes about 7 seconds. after that your good. 3 levels of heat.

Got a pic of the right grip and its controls?

I plumbed my '08 for a set (installed a Fuse Block and a pigtail) but never got around to buying any. These look...interesting.

Install time. 2 hours. I like how the controls are built right into the grip assembly. no external switches/bulky thermostats. very clean

No issue with the bar ends? Wanted to make sure no electrical was in the ends.
none i can tell..even with radar detector mount it still fit. i had to use a rubber mallet on non throttle side as the fit was quite tight. no wires are exposed, as I inspected them closely.

Thanks for sharing this. That's a good price considering what you're getting. I really like the integrated controls.

I've got heated gloves, but being wired up is problematic. A few times I forgot I was tethered. I bet a pair of these and some warm gloves would work fine at 30f behind the fairing.

I think the key point is low voltage protection. would be a bummer with a dead battery in the mountains.

Saves the trouble of wiring with a relay.
I put Fuse Blocks on both my C14s and set up switched circuits for things like heated grips, seats, etc. These are mounted to the bracket that's usually used to hold the CA-model evap cannister. In case a fuse needs to be replaced they can be readily accessed.

good idea sir, are those pics acceptable?

These now show as discontinued from just about everywhere.

What's the best alternative which incorporates the controller adjustment into the left grip...a Koso Apollo, some other Yamaha, or...?

I'm quite surprised that these are sold out. they must be quite popular. did you try contacting a yamaha dealership?

wow bummers
that grips/ heater control is why I bought it. I know some others have low voltage protection but unknown about controller built right into grip

here is the guy that invented hot grips. they say concours does fit. check em out
Where their online store does this:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function dl() in /home/hotgrips/public_html/squirrelcart/pre_common.php:283 Stack trace: #0 /home/hotgrips/public_html/squirrelcart/pre_storefront.php(39): include() #1 /home/hotgrips/public_html/store.php(1): include('/home/hotgrips/...') #2 {main} thrown in /home/hotgrips/public_html/squirrelcart/pre_common.php on line 283

I'd say they have a little web application work to do...

I saw that too. maybe call them?
I wonder if they are still business. I remember when I used race enduro/hare scrambles everyone used hot grips

the grips worked perfect in the mountains. setting was too much heat. I settled in 2 or 3. looks like they are discontinued.

the bike master grips are trending at $47.23!
i just put em on the dorsoduro. they work great!
the rubber pattern is actually better than the yamaha ones!
