Aftermarket heated grips

Got the factory grips from my SP too. You would not notice them on. They just work.

There are no extra parts added. You press the start button whilst the engine is on to select the temp. Just leave it where you want it for the next time.

Not sure of the etiquette on dead threads, but figured this was the best place for my question.

Installed a BikeMaster kit (open box) from Amazon for $30. Well, nearly installed anyway. I had some plastic-formula epoxy laying around, figured it would be easier to work with than the CA glue.

Amazingly, the left hand grip is solid as a rock. However, I can't seem to get it to cure on the right side (throttle tube). Wiped down everything with alcohol before applying the glue. Granted, it's been in the 40's overnight, but if anything I would think the throttle side would set better since its formulated for plastics. When I pulled the grip off a couple days later, it was the consistency of contact cement.

Tried a second time with the heaters on to speed up curing, but it doesn't seem much better.

Quote:
Kit comes with superglue (cyanoacrylate) which is not very heat sensitive once it dries. At least, not at any temperature the grips can go up to
How quick do you have to be to slide the grips on with CA? Did you apply anything else to lubricate it first? I know CA is water soluble to some degree, but perhaps there are solvents that would lower the friction in a pinch.

P.S.: It was a pain to figure where to route the wiring (installed a relay between the subframe and battery "tray"). If anyone else is contemplating this route, I can probably save you some time.

Cheers!

PSA for anyone looking at getting heated grips. My suspicions have been confirmed at last. I had my bike into the dealer after completing the 9000 mile service myself (so they could reset the light), and finally had them turn the "factory" heated grips on.

But here's the best part: I installed aftermarket grips, and I just soldered them to the connectors that plug into the factory wiring harness. The dealer tech who did it didn't even bother to ask, since clearly the grips I used were not Ducati. Now they function exactly like the factory ones do, with the starter button. For those of you installing Oxfords, this would be perfect. You get the built-in heat controller that Ducati gives us, while avoiding the insane prices that Ducati charges for grips. Oxford sells just the replacement grips at $20 a side, which I think is very reasonably priced.

Wait, so I can buy the 20 bucks each grips, splice them into the system and now I have factory controlled heated grips?
