What is the "in" heated grip system now?
« on: November 27, 2013, 03:33:30 PM »
On my Multistrada, I used HotGrips, which are great, but have to be JB Welded to the bars.  People have mentioned various pads that go under the stock grips.  I just can't remember which one is favored.

Thanks. :thumbsup:

Isn't there a factory setup for the Tiger?  If so, I'd go that route.

Check out the options available at Lokitt.com

Personally, I prefer Symtecs with a HeatTroller.
It's never too early to plan.
It's never too late to go.

The HotGrips are great, but if they ever have to come off, dayum!

Check the price first....the factory grips for the Yamaha Tenere are $400. Just sayin'....

wow! factory ones for the KTM were $100 and seem to work great.
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.

$200, but comes with everything and it's stock.  The old HotGrips were $125 8 years ago.

Symtecs are usually about $50 and will burn your hands if you want.

if past performance is any indication of the future . . . . . my 07 Tiger has factory heatedgrips, and they have given no problems at all for over 100K miles. . . . .
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

The factory grips on my R1200ST get so hot you can't hold on after a while.  Zero problems with it.

For the G650X and XT250 I put on Oxford heated grips and haven't had any issues.  I had those on my KLR650 with no problems either.  Twisted Throttle lowered the price on them recently.  They used to be $79.99 and now they are $49.99.
