I installed grip heaters revisited.
My first ride demonstrated two problems. First the throttle side is much warmer than the left. If the throttle side was just right the left was too cold. Second is the lack of grip adhesive on the throttle side resulted in a broken wire at the solder connection to the film.
To correct the temperature balance I added the 2 ohm resistor supplied with the kit for the low temperature setting in series for the throttle side. The resistor gets hot so mount it where is has air flow and does not touch anything that can melt.
The two wires soldered to the film are perpendicular to the film. That interferes with the grip and puts a stress on the solder joint and wires. I resoldered the wires parallel to the throttle tube and facing the front of the bike. I covered the solder connection with a generous layer of epoxy and installed the grips with grip adhesive.
The last ride was great. The temperatures are well balanced and I really like the temperature controller. The heated grips work so well I probably will not bother with the heated glove liners.
