Heated grips

Post by andybd69 »



Hi all,
my 2007 wing is showing wear on the grips, as well as leaving black residue on my hands. Because they are heated grips I am not seeing clear info on what I can use for replacements. I was looking for something with a larger diameter than the OE version. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

I would recommend the ISO-grip for OEM Heated Grips...

Have a set on my 2008 and like them (I got black not chrome). Heat will penetrate thru them, just not as hot.

Thanks! I did look at those. Looks like a hassle to install. Do they just slide over the existing grips?

Very easy to install. Comes in two pieces (clam shell) and are secured with allen screws. Be sure to get the matching bar end weights!

Grip Puppies will give you the larger diameter you want and the heat will still work. Have had them on my 06 since new!

These are the ones I use. They slip over the existing grips and transfer the heat very well. Adds a little padding to the grip without the bulk.
Not thick like some of the chrome grips. For the price, you can replace them every couple years.
