Heated grip wiring?

11 posts in this topic

Where would be the best place to pick up power for my heated grips on my 450?

I was thinking I could get power from the spagetti on the front of the bike from the headlight.

The grips use very little amperage.

That is where I got my power.

I pull the headlight bulb when I am strickly riding off road, and one time my light switch was "off" and I could not quite figure out why the grip warmers were not working.

Other than that, Beezer is gonna like.

Pay attention to how you run the wires for the throttle side. All that twistin of the throttle broke my wires off the heater element. And I thought ahead even and wired it so the wires wouldn't move on the element when the throttle was twisted. And they still broke.

Heated grips draw about 35 watts. That white ceramic thingy gets hot so carefull were you mount it.

Thanks boys!

Anything is better than couching.

I'm going to open some trails up in the nature preserve.

The tree huggers don't like to be out in the cold.

If you wire your hot grips to the hot lead going to the headlight switch, you can run your hot grips with or without the headlight.
