Ducati heated hand grips

I ordered the heated hand grips when i picked up the bike and the grips finally came in today!! Here in alaska when i ride to work at 6am it is lower 30's to 40s most morning. If anyone has them, are the grips worth it, how long did the install take and can i do it myself (i know i have to bring it in to the dealer for the computer work), and since on the bill of sale for the bike that included the grips but not the install fee, should the dealer not charge me the install fee. Thanks for helping me, im new to the world of ducati's and owning brand spanking new bikes I have own beaters and older bikes till now.

Stay warm

Anthony

For warranty reasons you should let the dealer installs the grips, if something goes wrong it's not your fault; if the dealer is a good one he will not ask you for extra bucks, otherwise he sucks!

I made the trip to Soldotna, Ak last June and really had a great ride (21 days on the ST), and yes I used my heated grips. LOL

I'm a DIY guy, and wouldn't hesitate to do the install. One of our members has already found the plug-in and put up pictures on how to get to it. (under or behind the headlight assembly).

Great improvement over the Multi12 which is behind the airbox and under the fuel tank which has to be removed.

I'm the guy that did the DIY for the GPS that shows the connector for the Heated Grips. I am curious how many connectors there are for the heated grips. I only saw one small connector behind the headlight (as per my photo) do your install instructions confirm this is the only connection?

There are two bundles of wires tied back on each side of the headlight housing. I suspect each bundle contains a plug in for the heated grips.
