    Just irrevocably got nearly to installing this on my snowblower, as a pre-emptive arrange against the coming winter cold. Although I didn’t need the instructions, I found they were made in a way that could help the worst “welder” (one who makes sparks and welds wires instead of fixing electrical problems) install these without an issue. Drilled a hole in the “dash” for the switch, drilled another small hole in the bars for the ground (not necessary, as you can ground it to an existing bolt), ran the wires, and installed the heater elements. The resistor for the “low” path can be a small bulky in tight spots, but was simple enough to hide on this snowblower. Fired up the engine and it works fantastic! The right test will be this winter though …

    My snowblower (Toro 828 Powershift) has a lighting coil, which is what I tapped into to power these grips. It produces a small over 14 VAC at full throttle, which is plenty, and shouldn’t affect longevity at all for being too high. Never measured amp output of the coil, because if it can power just one light, it can power these grips. Probably wouldn’t handle both these grips plus a light (don’t have, or need one) just judging by the output wire size from the lighting coil (about 18 AWG).

    I have this same style heater on my ATV hooked to a controller that allows 5-way temperature adjustment, plus the skill to power 3 other accessories the same way. I prefer this peel-n-stick style over the ones that come molded one-cut, so that I can keep whatever soft grips I have without having to resort to the hard plastic of the other style. With these you can keep your existing grips.

    A tip for those who fight with removing rubber grips from motorcycles, ATV’s, snowblowers, or snowmobiles – use a screwdriver first to break the glue bond, then slot in an air nozzle to blast the grip with compressed air. Block that small hole in the back of the grip with your thumb. Slides right off like magic .. most of the time. Either way it’s simpler than what you were doing previous to!

    These grip heaters work perfectly and were simple to install. I really cheated and left the stick backing on and place them under the leather grip wraps that are on my bike (and over the grip itself) so the difficulty install was really just the wiring and that was pretty simple also.

    I have used this product previous to and was pleased with it. Have not had any issues after years of use. Priced reasonably for the quallity.The only thing that I have done to make it surpass is used a small zip tie on the throttle side at the wires so it doesn’t stress the wire connector at the elements when twisting the throttle. Used rubbing alcohol to install grips, tried grip glue and on high setting the left grip would start to go.
