    This review is from: Western Power Sports Heated Grip – Black

    I live in the Arctic. Even though I’ve only tested this out in August, that means testing it out in temperatures in the upper 30s. (F) I’m going to try and leave a thorough review since the product description and instructions are lacking.

    ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS/HINTS AT BOTTOM OF REVIEW!

    These grips are well constructed molded (synth) rubber with the heating elements protected inside the grips. These grips are quite comfortable, as the rubber is significantly thicker and therefore more shock/trembling absorbing than stock grips. My only concern here would be that if you have small hands, and already have difficulty with the thumb throttle and handlebar, this grip will probably make things worse.

    This unit does not heat up quickly, but rather supplies a steady heat that builds up in the handle. On high (with temps in the 30s) it is very warm, nearly too hot on bare skin, in a couple minutes. With well insulated gloves, the heat will come through to your hands and become very warm, though it will take a minute or two longer to work through the gloves. Fortunately the push button operation is simple to use, even with gloves, so you can straightforwardly change to “low” if they become too warm.

    The kit comes with a variety of mounting hardware, so that the switch can be mounted on the handlebar, on a mirror post, or mounted to a body panel on your ATV. It also comes with a built-in fuse, so you are more free with how you connect it. Overall this kit is surpass suited to longer rides than small minute or two jaunts, but either way it is fantastic value for the price, mainly considering that similar kits often cost $20 more. Even without the heat, I prefer the comfort of these grips to my stock Polaris grips.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    Packaging and instructions for this set are smallest. Previous to buy, be sure you’re comfortable with messing with your vehicles’ electrical system and removing body panels. It’s not at all complex, but it isn’t something you plug into a cigarette lighter socket either. The supplied wiring utilize and various mounting options for the switch means routing the wires is straight-forward process. And as a bonus, this leaves your cigarette lighter (or other accessory power source) free to use.

    I recommend having a wire stripper handy, and a fuse tap for your ATV’s fuse size would make things simpler but isn’t necessary. Any tools required to take out your ATV’s body panels, and at least a basic socket set are must-haves. Some zip ties would be handy too. (Polaris vehicles require a star bit for your screwdriver.)

    This wiring utilize with this kit is well done, and there is a excellent part of wire between components allowing it to be more flexible. You’ll have to use some wire management techniques if you don’t want the cables drooping everywhere though. Most extra wire can be straightforwardly hidden/stowed in the handlebar headlamp assembly without vex. One concern is that the section of utilize that goes to a battery connection probably won’t be long enough if you want to connect directly to a battery or fuse box in the rear of your machine. Most machines I have seen have at least their fuse box in the front, so this shouldn’t be an issue. Check the location of your preferred connection point just to be sure. You can add wire to proffer the part without much vex if you are so inclined.

    When mounting the grips, try not to twist or bend them excessively to avoid damaging the heating components. Heat seems to be weakest on the side where the wire protrudes, as there seems to be a small gap in the heating element there. I recommend having the wire emerging from the grip pointed downward or forward, depending on your layout.

    Electrical connections are straight forward. There is a partially striped wire that needs to be connected to power, and a “O” connector to be mounted to a ground. Start by stripping some extra wire from the powered wire to make connecting simpler. I recommend attaching this to the powered side of an accessory fuse slot, or any other fuse that is powered when the machine is on. (this prevents current from going through two fuses, but also keeps the handlebar grips from being left on when the machine is off) A fuse tap is handy here, but you can use bare wire if you are careful. (wrap the bare wire nearly the fuse leg and re-slot in it gently.)

    Once this step is completed, you can find a excellent spot to place the ground wire. The O connector is generous enough for most ordinary ATV bolts, and locations near the fuse box will typically be well-grounded. make a connection with the o connector by holding or taping it to a test location, and turn on power to your machine to test and make sure that location is adequately grounded. If it works you can loosen that bolt and attach the connector permanently. Note that aluminum doesn’t work as a ground, so avoid attaching to a warmer assembly or aluminum…

    I ordered one of these for my mother to give my step-dad for his birthday. Previous to a month had past he called and questioned me to order another. They use them on their 4-wheelers and like them. I had a chance to try them and they do a fantastic job of keeping feeling in your fingers.

    Fantastic grips!, August 27, 2013

    I’ve had these grips on my 2000 Yamaha Kodiak 400 sense 2005 and they have never let me down. Have not used them alot but they come on and heat up every time I turn them on. The grips are alittle generous but not so they are terrible. I wear gloves and have small hands but I have never had a problem holding on to the grips while trail riding. I will buy again when I get my new quad.
