Pulled the wires out of my heated grip

I have a 1992 K75, I am completely new to BMW ownership. I love the bike. Just wanted to put lower bars on it. In beginning to tear things down, I pulled the left grip off. I did not know that the wires were routed inside the bars.

The wires seem to have pulled out of the grip, cleanly. I'm wondering if this can be repaired.

Re: Pulled the wires out of my heated grip

I once tore mine up using the same system as you. In my case, there was enough residual wire to solder and shrink tube. Are you able to get to the wire in the grip and is there any remaining portion to solder?

The wires pulled cleanly out of the grip. But, the connector is so far down in the grip, I don't know how I'd be able to reach it to re-connect or to solder it.

You'll most probably be buying a new one. It may be worth a try to cut off or drill out the other end to gain access for a better view. It does sound to be a lost cause, but it's worth a try.

Do a "Search" using "cutting grips". The thread I followed was started by cccpastorjack. It was titled---- Replacing Grips
