Having heated grips on your KTM or any dirt bike is the next best thing to E-Start and a Rekluse Clutch. In this review we will also help you with the installation of heated grips for your KTM. If you already have a set of heated grips skip to the install section to get a few tips to make your installation look factory.
Tusk Heated Grips
In this review we used the Tusk Heated Grips due to their price point, and how often we need heated grips. In the winter time I don’t do a lot of riding so the only time I need heated grips is spring and fall. The Tusk Heated Grips were very easy to install and came with everything needed, but we added a few items for a cleaner installation. The throttle side grip does heat up faster but on the low setting they stay about the same temperature as long as you insulate the clutch side grip “See Tip 2”. Overall at $20 the Tusk Heated Grips will keep your hands warm and allow you to wear regular gloves in cold weather.
Installation Tips KTM
- Use insulated Male & Female quick connects” Picture 1″and add a Y from your yellow wire that goes into the headlight switch. Don’t cut the yellow wire and twist them together you will regret it later.
- Insulate your bar on the clutch side “Picture 1” if you don’t the grip won’t get as hot because all the heat will go into the bar. Here is the bar insulation I used. [Link Here]
- Mount white resistor that comes with heated grips to triple clamp where no other wires will touch it because it gets hot.
- Ground grips to your triple clamp or frame.
- Mount switch to hole in the side of your headlight mask “Picture 2”. Might have to make hole slightly larger using drill bit.
