randy Posted March 19, 2007 Share Posted March 19, 2007 I have standard OEM heated grips on my 1996 R1100RT. Basically they have worn out. However on my FJR 1300 and on a number of friends bike I have installed aftermarket heated grips. So far in all cases I have used the dual star kit. I like them very much. Cost is around 30.00 for the kit (not including grips). In addition you get to choose your grips. And finally with the expensive (50.00 optional) troller, you can get infinite variable heat levels. The dual star with heat troller is around 85.00 deliver. OEM grips run about 130.00 for a set. So the price is not really the issue. Anyway, I am thinking I will be purchasing the dual star system with the heat troller and then tapping this system into the BMW OEM wire harness (yes you can adapt the OEM connectors to the heat troller wiring). Just wondering if others have gone this way, or is everyone just buying the OEM grips. Just for the record, YES 10 years use out of OEM grips is great, and the cost of OEM grips is not the problem. I really like the idea of infinite heat level, and being able to use different grips. That is more my focus. Link to comment
