Installed Show Chrome # 17-0953C heated grips on 12-3-16. EBay purchase for $47.59 US free shipping. The new grips have the same O.D. of 38mm.
The grips do work well and get very warm. For the test ride the outside temp. was 32F, 0C and cloudy.
I also have the hand wind deflectors so I chose light driving gloves for the ride. The only time the cold was a little annoying was when I touched the metal levers.
So next time slightly thicker gloves and a lower heat setting will probably work better. Got 10 inches of snow here today so I can't tell when Ill get out again.
These are some model specific instructions and tips that do not come with the grip kit. COVER YOUR GAS TANK!
Installation was great. Remove the right grip by unscrewing the chrome end cap. Blast compressed air between the grip rubber and the throttle pipe and twist it off.
Remove the two screws and take the left side switch assembly off. You don't need to disconnect any wires. Blast air into the right end of the left grip and twist it off. Spray carburetor cleaner on to a rag and use it to wipe off the old glue that's on the bar and the pipe. There is room to mount the controller's clamp between the clutch reservoir and the handle bar. Test fit the controller [without it's clamp] to the bar and mark the spot with a small piece of tape or something. Remove the two bolts and clamp that holds the clutch master cylinder in place. While removing the master cylinder note were the reference punch mark on top of the bar is. With the master off you can install the controller's clamp and two bolts. Line up the master cylinder and clamp with the punch mark on the handle bar and tighten the two bolts. Install the peg inside the left switch assembly into the hole in the bottom of the handle bar and tighten it's two screws . No other modifications are needed, the new grips will go right over the stock throttle pipe and bar as they are. From this point the instructions that come with the grip kit should git the job done for you.
