I got the Yamaha universal heated grips and they fit great. Taking the old grips off was easy enough, and putting the heated ones on was even easier. Just a couple plugs to connect and run the wiring to the battery. It has a low voltage shut off in case you accidentally leave into. I’m happy with them.

Today was my first decent cold ride to work....just under 30 with a wind chill taking it down to 25.....the combination of heated grips and Hand Guards worked out great!!! I really like that I can set the grips on 3 different levels and the Guards did provide decent wind protection.

Those are VERY neat. If I didn't really like my brown Biltwell grips, I'd consider getting these. I like how everything is integrated into the left grip. No controller or switch to mount elsewhere.

So the throttle grip has a wire lead that must be looped in such a way that it can pivot when you twist the throttle. Correct?

I had heated grips on my snowmobile years ago but sleds don't have twist throttles. Not sure I'd like that wire lead rolling with throttle on every shift. I suppose you'd get used to it like anything else.

I believe that you are correct, sir, but it really isn't a big loop of wire left hanging off the handlebars. I was going to put a pair of heated grips on several different bikes in the past, but for some reason I never got around to it. I think that it's actually easier and more effective to use heated gloves. The power lead off the battery can double as your battery tender lead, as long as you buy the adapter. Just my personal preference.

Heated gloves are bulkier and have an uncomfortable harness inside the jacket. With heated grips and a good fairing, you can use summer or at least spring gloves comfortably. With a naked bike like ours, even with brush guards, heated gloves are probably going to be warmer. Stopping the wind makes heated grips effective. If you can't stop the wind, heated gloves are the way to go.
