Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

I don't think I've ever performed an easier job on the KRS!

Tools for the job: grips, hairspray, snips (the pair in photo work great, and NO damage to heating elements!), and a towel to cover the tank.

1. Carefully remove each stock grip, snipping a few mm's at a time, as you work your way down from the switch housing. It took me 2 minutes in total!
2. Take a wet rag and carefully clean off any residue or oil on the heating elements.
3. Spray a generous quantity of firm hold hairspray from the wife's bathroom vanity into each new grip. You DO NOT need to spray hairspray directly on the heating elements as it will only create a mess! However, your choice!
4. Install one grip at a time as the hairspray will dry quickly!
5. Simply and carefully slide on the grip. There should be little or no resistance!
6. Once both grips are installed, switch-on the heated elements for about 15 minutes and walk away. Don't worry about running down the battery.
7. Come back after 15 minutes and delicately wipe-off any hairspray residue on the grip(s) with a wet rag. I simply stepped-back, drank a tallboy of DAB (if you don't know what DAB is, you don't know shit about beer) and admired one of the most beautiful BMWs ever made!
8. DO NOT touch, test or twist the grips for at least a few hours to ensure the hairspray has set!

The whole procedure took me 14 minutes and that was me taking my time!

Get those POS cracking stock grips off and buy a quality gel set and put them on! Only a Mongoloid could screw this up!



You need two grip sets (each set contains one 25mm and one 22mm grip), as you will be using the two 1 inch or 25 mm grips. Repackage the 22 mm grips and sell on eBay for $10 or throw them out. Who cares. Each set cost $15!

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

nice instructions, clear pics.
Is there a noticable a difference in the cush of the gel grips.
My gel pad gloves are getting flat and one of my grips has a slice in it so this looks like a good time to try this.

Yes, the gel feels very comfortable and seems to soak-up the vibes just as well, if not better, than the stock grips. I also noticed that since the grips are straight and slim, not sloped like the stock set, that I get a better "grip". They just feel right. Its hard to explain.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

NICE!...the left one came right up to the switch gear...the BMW ones don't..you have a gap just enough to make it look cheap...is there a slight overhang on the right one?

Nice, I didn't know you could replace the grips so easily while keeping the heating element in place. My K came with the stock non-ribbed grips while my R has the ribbed version. I know what you mean about the better feeling from the straight grips. As an added bonus, it seems to me that the non-ribbed grips transfer heat more efficiently. The ladies may prefer ribbed, but I like 'em smooth!

The left grip fits perfectly. The right grip has a slight space (2 to 3 mm)... just like the stock grip. I think that was part of the design or the grip wouldn't twist freely.

Just do a google search using the product code. I bought mine from a local non-BMW dealer. ProGrip products are pretty common.

It was surprizingly easy. The heating elements are glued to their plastic sleeves. The stock grips simply peel off. If you are careful, there is no problem to replace the grips. My wife likes the ribbed version too

As an added bonus, the new grips look like they were installed by the factory, while the stock grips looked like an aftermarket afterthought.

that looks great! mine are cracked and I just wacked off the ends to install a Throttlemeister (a bit crooked and krappy looking)...didn't know you could install aftermarket grips on the heated grips.

I forgot to add, that you should order the grips with the "closed" ends. There are other versions of the grips with an open end to accommodate barend weights... unless of course you added throttlemeister barend weights.

Also, DON'T use glue. Hairspray works fine. Think about the future when you want to replace with a new set! Hairspray washes off easily, glue will likely leave a mess and the grips may take the heating elements with them!

Mine are the closed end version. They came with an air hole drilled in each side.

My grips are holding wonderfully. I don't regret for a moment making the switch!

I forgot to add a pic of what the heating elements look like after the stock grips are peeled off:

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

I guess you exaggerated when you said you took your time and it took 14 minutes. I took my time and i took more time opening the package than putting them on. Less than 10 in all. I found the grips for $10 a pair = $20 Canadian... with the number you provided. Great feel.

Great post and nice pictures.

Thanks,
Jacques

Well, I didn't include the time it took to get the grips out of their packages! However, I don't remember being too challenged with them.

As a follow-up, if you find you're not getting enough stick with the throttle side grip, you can purchase "grip glue" from any motorcycle dealer. It comes in a very small tube and only costs a few dollars. I simply put a layer of good quality black electrical tape on the heating element, added grip glue to the inside of the grip and slid it one. She is rock solid now. The best part is if you need to replace the grips down the road and want to preserve the factory heating elements, the glue is only on top of the black electrical tape. The tape can be easily removed, if you're careful, and you can start the process all over again.

Perhaps he didn't exaggerate, but he DID take the time to shoot photos for our benefit, hence the extra few minutes.

Thanks so very much for documenting your work and easing many riders into replacing their grips. So, the new ones are gel and soften the vibration a bit more than stock. Are they any bigger/thicker... I mean the.. uhm.. unribbed ones (small hands here...) No, really, serious question. Unlike you guys, only my thumb and index finger touch around the grips. The other fingers don't even get close to my palms, so installing thicker grips is out, but I'd love to lessen the vibration from the bars.

Although these are grips for the RS, I could do some research for the S.

My replacement grips are definitely thinner than the stock ribbed RS grips. They seem to do a good job with vibration, but I never really noticed too much vibration before I did the grip switch. The RS is turbine smooth in motion, just lumpy at idle.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

Quick question, was the left grip a little harder to slide on? Standard grips are different sizes for left and right just wondering if the left one gave you problems with the added thickness of the heating elements?

Yes, the left grip was marginally tighter, but still easy to twist on when lubricated with hair spray.

I ended up adding a layer of good quality black electrical tape to the right throttle grip and using grip glue to secure the grip in place. [edit: This may not be necessary, but I did find that when manually moving the KRS in and out of my garage that the strain on the RIGHT grip caused it to shift a bit. After using a bit of grip glue, it hasn't budged.]

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

Update,

Indeed the throttle grip and the clutch were not tight after drying overnight. I went to the Honda dealership and bought Honda grip glue. $7, put the glue, the grip went easy no problem. Then I noticed a bit of glue oozing... Both grips split at some places... I guess I will have to buy two new sets.

It is not expensive at least.

Back to the drawing board

Jacques; My right grip rolled off without damage. Sorry to hear you need to buy a new set of grips. As for glue oozing... you used too much. A little evenly spread inside the grip is all that is needed. Good luck and post-up the results.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

They both rolled off easy without damage. It is when I put them back in with the glue that they ripped at many places. Wonder if it is because of the grip glue.
I will try again with a new set without the glue putting less hairspray in and see. The OEM are quite expensive and go figure, they seem to be identical and at the dealer it is $33 for the clutch side and $47 for the throttle side.
I will take my chance with the same as you have and be more careful putting them on.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

I may have an explaination,

the grips lenght, OEM to Progrip, there is a little over one eight of an inch shorter on the new ones. I may have pushed them in to fit to the hilt and forced the end to split.

I will be very careful this time.
When at the store to re-order the grips, I met a 98 KRS owner who had to pull the OEM out to replace the heated grip. He told me they went off without cutting, using compressed air and the same thing to put them back in, no spray net, no glue and they don't slide. I could try that.

I will let you know.

Thanks again for the post.

Jacques

When at the store to re-order the grips, I met a 98 KRS owner who had to pull the OEM out to replace the heated grip. He told me they went off without cutting, using compressed air and the same thing to put them back in, no spray net, no glue and they don't slide. I could try that.

I will let you know.

Thanks again for the post.

That would explain it! Don't hamfist these things. Perhaps you should get your wife or grandmother to install them?

I am a bit of an anal bastard, and when I removed my stock grips, I took a flat file and quickly flattened out the plastic grip ends (the piece the heating element tape wraps around), taking care not to damage the heating element wires. It sounds more complicated that it was, and it took me about 2 mintues to do. I didn't mention this as it is not a necessary step. However, it will take any sharp edges off.

Latest update,

I got the new rubbers, carefully put a thin coat of lubricant, slowly rolled up the rubber to the hilt ... Am I on the right forum Hahaha! This time the rubber did not split or break. They dried up perfectly and the feel is quite good.

Thanks again.

Kurgan... I knew this would work!
The BMW folks up here said I needed to replace both left and right with new heated
grips and wiring etc. I was going to do this anyway - Thanks for the HOT tip...

I owe you a large DAB

Cheers

New grips work great but... the grip glue actually ate my 1st set...
You can see where the grip-stick melted through... I have another set now
I think no glue would be best - just slide them on... nice gel grips - feels good

ProGrip 723 is nice after my worn out stock grips...

Sweet!

The grip glue did the same thing to my first set. I thought it was how I handled them, you confirm it was the glue.

Thanks

If there's a female in your house then you already have the best grip glue I've ever used. It's called hair spray and works great!

I just recently changed the stock grips on my GT and purchased 2 sets of Pro Grips from kneedraggers.com. You need two sets because the come with a 22mm and a 25mm in each set. The 25mm will fit the bars on your bike. Total cost was about $20 with shipping.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

just a word of caution. I have an 03 rs. The end of the grips have a hard plastic raised edge underneath the end of the grip. This doesn't show in Kurgen post. That ridge has to remain as it protects one of the heating element wires that comes up there. It is a thick black wrapped wire that also curves around the 1/3 the end of the grip. If you remove the plastic edge, the wire then has no support and gets pushed out.. Also the part underneath the grip is different. It is black with some nubs running along the length of the grip. The heating element is a strand of wire wrapping around the grip set into this underlaying rubber. A bit different than the original post.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

Ok.. for the second grip, knowing what I was doing it took about 30 minutes. Took some pictures as my heated grips are very different from those shown at the top of the thread.

Here is the installed right grip. I learned here that I needed to try and preserve the hard plastic end cap embedded in the rubber of the grip. It acts as guard for the wiring.



I used the old style BMW grips. The stock grips I had were fine, just worn out. In asking a bunch of high mileage riders what grips, a majority said these.

Here you can see part of the wiring insulation showing through as well as a bit of the hard plastic in the end cap showing through that I want to save.



There is a gap on the originals next to the switch gear. I snipped at these, scored the rubber (not cut through it, just a scoring line) and then would work with a pair of needle nose pliers. I would work to roll rubber up around them as that seems to keep the grip rubber in bigger pieces. If you try and pull it straight off it comes off in little pieces between the size of M&Ms and a quarter. Also notice that the heating parts of the grip are different than the original posts here.











Once down do the end I pulled the rubber over the end. This broke the hard plastic piece I was trying to save as it isn't separate from the rubber but molded into it. It would have been better at this point to try and snip away at the rubber.







Here you can better see the wiring that has to be protected. This includes that black thickly insulated wire on the back half at the end cap. I then trimmed out a little of the new grip so the wiring could better be accommodated.







Not the slickest job. Perhaps if working with grips that had solid ends things would fit better over the end part. The new grips did ease up next to the switch gear. The just don't have a very polished look on the ends. However, since they are molded onto the heating elements, they should be easier to replace if this begins to bother me.





The first effort on the right grip took a bit longer as my rubber removal technique had to be discovered. Here you see the many small pieces it is easy to make in trying to remove the molded covering. It took closer to an hour to do that grip. Then you see the bigger pieces due to my learning how to do it better. Even then I my results were better when I worked slow and wound it up on the pliers, then stop and regrip and do a bit more.





All in all a very doable home project. Hope this helps you see what lies beneath.

Very interesting.
I, too, have a 2003 K1200RS (mfg 09/02) and my heating elements look exactly like the picture in post #15.
NCStephen, what is your date of manufacture? BMW must have made a change during the model year.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

Mine was built May 03. I am third owner. First owner had bike from July 03 to July 04 with 7000 miles. Second owner had it 4 yrs and rode it less than 1000. He mentioned some scratches on the fairing from a tip over in garage that happend onto other things. Those scratches are different from the worn abrasions on the fairing edges. Those edges were from a moving incident as there is some light panel damage and a small abrasion on the valve cover so it was down at some point. Perhaps these are from a post build replacement.

How many miles did you get out of the old stock grips? I've noticed with Atlanta winters (very mild) that my OEM grips started showing signs of wear around 20K. I'm at 30K now and will replace them very soon using all the info gleaned from yours and previous threads. I was just wondering if the more they are used (heat turned on) the quicker they wear. I suppose the softer the rubber the more conductive and efficient. Lastly, are the new after market grips as conductively efficient?

I replaced my non-heated grips last week. Being a golfer, I used some golf grip lub I had left over from replacing my golf club grips. Worked great!

History of my bike.. 1st user in FL got it July 03, rode it 6800 miles and traded it July 04. Second owner, sat in garage in Orlando for 4 yrs.. 900 miles ridden. I got it October 08. I don't have a garage so it sits out, usually without a cover all the time. I ride year round. At work it sits in the sun uncovered. (or rain or snow or whatever). I do ride with gloves all the time so no sweaty/oily palms on them. So the grips have seen hot and cold and wet and dry and heat has been used daily over the winter months here. Usually low but on those 20 degree days high was nice. So the bike as 78,000 on it now.

Hope this helps.

Stephen your grips look like they would be a pita to install . I thought it would take about an hour to do mine as you always have to add at least double when its performed by a clown But the old grips came off a little too easy and no mess . I think the longest part was deciding which grip was 22mm and 25 mm and then figuring out if the 25mm one will fit on because it seemed smaller in diameter than the handlebar grips .

Mine were exactly like post #15 and it really took in all 20 minutes.

First time I see these Stephen. My guess is also post manufacturing.

My two cents

I ride a 06 GT, which has bar end weights. Anyone repllace those? Do I use the same process with two sets of aftermarket grips, using the 1" grip on both sides?

I have used an air hose stuck in the small hole in the end of the grips as you slide them on. The air pressure inflates the grips and they slide right on. It does tend to dry the hair spray rather quickly tho.

Taking grips off/on is a piece of cake. !!!!!

Use an air compresser with a blower end and just aim it under the rubber .... The grip will blowup and slide off with EASE !!!!

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

I will be replacing mine very soon. I have done grips on three other bikes at this point and find that rubbing alcohol is the only thing needed to attach them. I admit that I've never done heated grips before.

Mine appear to be the simpler version of the one's I've seen above. My bike was built June of '02 I believe.

+2 on these
I have big hands and the GT grips are already thicker than the RS ones.
The Grip pups added comfort and ez to do.

Re: Replace POS KRS grips in 15 minutes for $30 -- Too Easy!

Replaced my ailing stock non-ribbed grips yesterday. When I started to peel them off, I noticed the same underneath as in NCStephen's pictures. Lucky for me, I had previously picked up a set of used heated grips from a GT (just because they were cheap). These had ribbed grips (worn out), but the elements underneath were the other style with orange tape. Maybe the difference has to do with the grip type (ribbed vs smooth)?

I used compressed air to get the grips on, and that worked really well. No hairspray or other lube/glue, but they still seem plenty tight. I went with Progrip 713. They are a bit short, so there's a small gap at the switches, but it doesn't bother me. They make an XL version of the 713 that is 1cm longer, but that might be too much. I haven't ridden with them yet, but they are definitely softer. I wonder about longevity, but they're easy and cheap enough to replace.
