Heated Seat and Grips

It is 3 degrees in NW Ohio and my seat and grips just don't seem as warm as they do in the Spring and Fall. Could it be the fuse?

Re: Heated Seat and Grips

If your clothes are layered and have on thick gloves that is the problem. The heat can't pass threw all the material. So break out the "MESH" and summer gloves and enjoy the heated seat and grips

Re: Heated Seat and Grips

Check to see (call your dealer) if you still have your summer fuses in. Below certain temperatures, summer fuses don't allow enough current to flow, thus lowering the seat and grip temps. Replace with winter fuses, or, although much more expensive, year-round fuses. Should take care of the problem.

I wouldn't even try to get my bike out the lane. But these mitts work on the KLR. It's just too cold to ride the next few days.

That's the funniest thing I've heard in a looonnnnnnnggg time!

Seasonal fuses - why didn't I think of that?

Well, here we get the year-round fuses standard
