Heated grips replacement.

Hi all.

As the K has done 36,550 miles now, the grips are starting to look and feel a little sorry.

I've always liked the feel and feedback from Renthal grips - so the question is - can I remove the outer sheath of the O.E grips and fit Renthal grips over the top of the heating elements.

I am presuming that the heating elements are separate..

Thanks in advance.

Re: Heated grips replacement.

There's a thread on here somewhere showing how to do it.

A cheap and easy solution is to add Grip Puppies over your heated grips.
My wife used these on her K1300S and now has them on her R1200RS.


Found one thread. Check pictures in post #20

Thanks for that Lee.

I have found the thread. Looks like you need 2 throttle side grips and a steady hand..
