Has anyone put heated grips on the 650R's. I know you have to rewind the stator to get the power, but without a battery and all of that stuff. I have talked to several people and some say it does not matter if it is DC or AC. Some say it will only work if you change it to DC. I was wondering if any of you guys have them on there with JUST the stator rewound, and no dual sport kit.

Heated snowmobile grips all run off AC, and they work fine. I don't know why yours would be any different, unless specifically designated as "DC only" or something like that. IMO, anyway.

It does not matter if AC or DC.

Only matters with horns and stuff like that
