I have a 2008 wr450, love the bike, works great after the free mods and a few other things. I am thinking about putting grip heaters on it and am wondering if the stock charging system will handle them. Has anybody done this without problems or damage to the electrical system or battery?

Very cool....what brand did you use? I have been looking at Dual-Star and Symtec...do you know of others and or have you heard of these?

I did the same thing with my trailtech speedometer, it needed a 12v source for the backlight, I have it wired so when I turn on the headlight it turns on the backlight for the speedo. You could wire it before the switch so it has power all the time.

Ok well from every body I've talked to and all of the threads I've searched I decided to buy the Symtec grip heaters. I will post how they work as soon as I get them in service.

Sorry I'm a little late. I bought mine thru e-bay, Enduroshack. But Rocky Mountaim Cycle has them as well. I think they are made by Enduro Engineering
