Parts Advise

Postby silverbullet07 » Mon Feb 04, 2013 11:43 am



Thanks to all of the info regarding the Goldwing heated seats and grips I have read in this site, I have been able to diagnose at least part of my problem. I cannot get any continuity from the left grip. I know it is all wired in series so I will start with that issue. My question is, can I run a jumper wire from the right grip somehow to bypass the left and get the system up and working? Also can someone recommend a good supplier where I can get just the heated grips?

When I had a problem with my heat it turned out to be the left grip as well. I monitored the current and place a jumper across the
left grip connector under the shell. After inserting the jumper the current went from 0 to I think about 8 A. right grip heated up.
If not ebay I can't help with a supplier.

Thank you Jinx, I will call around and look online tomorrow to try and find the parts. In case it will be awhile, I might just throw it back together and just have the warm seat to use while I wait. The wife would like that. Thanks again :D

OMG!!! $120.00 for a handgrip. Just one, and of course you have to by the set. Now were at $230 plus. :shock: Let me see, I can bypass the grips and buy Admin's heated gloves that he likes so much and were good. I think he said the gloves were about $150 and they warm the top of your hands as well. Guess you know where I leaning now. Maybe I could check some wreckage yards. Ha, glad spring will be here soon, might be a decision for next fall. :roll:

Thanks WOJCIECH, I checked your sources as well. I coming to realize that anything from Honda is going to be very expensive. At least if we do the labor ourselves it helps a quite a bit.
