Heated grips turn off CC

Strange one this.

Never put two and two together until a lengthy ride last weekend.

When using Cruise Control if I turn on heated grips it disengages the cruise control. The dash(yellow) light stays on. But the CC turns off.

If the heated grips are on I cannot engage Cruise Control. No yellow light, but handlebar CC switch red light is on.

Any ideas?

no idea....

Offhand, it seems there may be pinched wires in the left grip... where power is going to the "clutch" switch.. that also "disengages" the CC.
