Thumbs up Mounting heated handgrips on the Hypermotard

Hi. Just wanted to recommend all Hypermotard-owners to mount the standard heated handgrips from the Ducati dealer (part code 97980161A) instead of some 3-party stuff. The display is pre-configured for the expansion so you won't get any ugly-ass extra switch thet has only 1 level or something like that. Actually you just push the start-switch a chosen number of times to select different warming levels. I live in Norway, so it's a great addition to extend the season a couple of weeks.

No, I don't work for Ducati.

I have Oxford grips on mine and they're wired using the Ducati grip connectors behind the headlight, as is my TomTom sat nav, the wiring is all there along with the male connectors that you can splice into the 3rd party grips without touching the OEM wiring.
The heat control using the start button works as it should and it shows it on the display too

Wish I'd done this when I 1st bought the bike back in 2013, the Ducati grips where on back order for over 6-9 months. So just waited and rode through winter with cold hands b4 they were eventually fitted. I'd have saved a lot of money and had warm hands.

No complaints with the Ducati heated grips though, they work well, but if they ever do fault, I know I'll be buying the Oxford grips next time.

Yup, this is what I've done and it works great. Over 5k miles and still just as trouble free as the day I put them in. $45 for parts, $20 for the dealer to enable them in the ECU.

Will I need to have the dealer tell the Ecu the grips are there, or will it detect them? I have a set in my cart, just waiting till I need another part first

Dealer needs to turn them on. The one closest to me wanted $50 (half an hour of labor) to do it, so I took it to a different one that only charged $20.

well after four years and 18500 miles, my left heated grip stopped working today.
I pulled the bike apart to check the wiring, found the left heated grip had an open circuit, compared to the right which was reading 7ohms. I had voltage going to both the grips approx. 6.5 volts.
I dug a little deeper and found I could easily remove the rubber grip from the plastic, revealing the heater element, I couldn't see anything wrong with it at first glance, so took a magnifying glass to it. I eventually found the hairline break.
Quick trip to Maplin's electronic shop for some circuit board paint, same stuff I used to repair car heated rear screens with all them years ago. A few coats of this stuff and there working as good as ever.
If they go again, I'm going to remove the heater elements chuck them in the bin. Then wrap use some thin gauge resister wire (7 ohm length) and solder in.

I bought mine straight from Oxford. IIRC they were around $50 after shipping and tax.
