That's what I want to do. Anyone happen to know heater part number?
In addition to what ANTON has posted above, you need to verify if your current left side has the black ribbed pattern or the "less deep" horizontal pattern type (both black).Looks like 61 31 7 710 442 ($160) for standard and 61 31 7 680 536 ($200) for chrome. Those are complete heated throttle tubes with grips.
From a friend who sold his K1200LT, I got a brand new Right side Heated-grip assy for a K1200LT. The BMW part number on the box matches the part fiche ("61 31 7 710 442") and physically the grip (and wire) appear to match one that would fit a K1200LT.I want to thank all for these replys. I need to find a heater element for the throttle side and then replace with new grip. I totally agree that twisting it back on has damaged element. Left side still works fine.
Hello SailorFrom a friend who sold his K1200LT, I got a brand new Right side Heated-grip assy for a K1200LT. The BMW part number on the box matches the part fiche ("61 31 7 710 442") and physically the grip (and wire) appear to match one that would fit a K1200LT.
HOWEVER, the inside DIAMETER of the plastic tube appear suspect to me - normally most BMW heated grip tube of the same era are 22.1 to 22.3 mm (like my K1200RS). This one is 23.5 mm inside diameter on the throttle side ?? To help confirm that what I have is correct for a K1200LT, after you remove the right side grip assy, could you do me a favor and measure the size of the metal tube under - thanks!

Thanks for your quick reply.Hello Sailor
I just went down stairs and removed the bar end on the throttle side. I measured the inside diameter of the heater tube part of the grip with a vernier caliper and it measures in at 23.8 mm
The point 8 is probably just because there is a certain flexibility in the tube. The OD of the bar measures in at 22 mm exactly.
Hope this helps.
