    Heat Demon External Heated Grip Warmers Kit

    The Symtec Heat Demon Heated Grips are a great, must have accessory. 2-stage heated grips that keep you comfortable and warm and riding with these really do extend your riding season. This quality kit allows the heating elements to be fitted neatly and discretely under the OEM grips or your own favorite aftermarket grips.

    Easy to install, with 2-stage heat settings, the kit is suitable for all types of bikes, tourers, sports, and off road / enduro bikes. The kit consists of two heating elements on flexible Mylar tape that attaches to your handlebar (clutch side) and throttle tube (throttle side) via permanent adhesive on the back. The right and left heaters are different, to accommodate lower heat tolerance of plastic throttle tubes.

    Features:

    • 3 amp draw (36W) on the high position.
    • No external resistor or other parts are needed to install.
    • 3-position (off, high, low) metal toggle switch or surface-mounted plastic rocker switch
    • Increases rider safety and comfort
    • Extend the riding season
    • Easy to install

    2 stars because of the sentence, "the switch circuit is transposed." Until I took the bike on a test-ride, I didn't understand that to mean: "our schematic is wrong." Low is High and vice versa. It's already heat-shrinked up, so I'm just going to live with it. Not the end of the world, but it makes no sense -- JUST FIX YOUR SCHEMATIC. The grips work great for a Guzzi V7, because those come with an easily accessible switched 12V source near the headlight, a green connector that's meant for a TomTom GPS. I cut the connector off and posi-locked the hot wire (orange) and hooked the grips ground wire to blue. Had some trouble getting the clutch side grip flush to the controls, but I'm guessing my local shop's compressed air gun might help. Finally, don't believe the instructions about the heat shrink being only-for-aluminum bars -- any metal bar will be a huge heat-sink, so be sure to melt the heat-shrink on the clutch-side bar. I don't have a heat gun, but my wife's hair-dryer worked fine.

    Good product with short wires
    I installed this on my 1980 Yami Midnight Special. Installation wasn't difficult; I used dish soap and the Pro Grip 842 gel grips. Getting the wiring to the right place was difficult and in the process the ring connector on the ground wire broke. I just soldered it to the other ring connector and no problems. I did find the wires a bit short; I'd rather tie up a bundle behind the headlight than have to extend the wires. Would recommend; it is warm but not too hot. Should help keep me from getting hypothermia like last year.

    Good Product, may be better stuff on the Market
    These grip heaters work well. Installation is standard fare: remove the old grips, Stick the heaters on, replace the grips, run the wires, install the switch etc. It can be time consuming and a bit of a PITA.

    I have a couple of complaints:
    - I would like to see Symtec include some additional snap-on wire junctions.
    - These do not come with grips. You have to reuse your old ones (if they arent glued on) or replace them with separately purchase grips.
    - The Toggle switch included works well, but other brands have a handlebar mounted switch.
    - The instructions are minimal
    - The instructions do mention that you should install the long piece of heat shrink over the clutch side handlebar if you are using aluminum bars (Aluminum being an extremely efficient heat conduct, much more so than steel). I have steel bars so i omitted this - that was a mistake. The throttle side heater is noticeably warmer because on the clutch side a lot of the heat is going into the handlebar.

    As stated in the summary line, these work well, but I think there are probably better products on the market. A friend of mine has the Bikemaster heated grips and they just look cleaner. Also, those units have the full plastic sleeve under them (between the heater element and the handlebar) that makes them more efficient (more heat into your hands, less into the bar), also, the BM set comes with grips.

    Worth the price. Can customize to your liking.
    Installed on old 1978 R80/7 BMW. Rather than using kit switch, I used Radio Shack #54-037 On-Off-On lighted rocker switch(sealed/marine/ waterproof) and also added 5amp in-line fuse. If you use the included toggle switch, order Radio Shack #54-905 rubber boot cover. The beauty of this kit is you can use Grab-On Grips which I have used for 30 years. Make this a winter project for proper contemplation and clean job. Have not actually tried them yet, but they feel great just on low setting. Use high for initial heat up.

    Awesome warmth for the winter.
    I ride a CBR600 F4i. I usually don't ride in the winter, but this year I planned a ride from NY to California in February. Without any wind blocking options for my hands on this sport bike I knew I needed heated grips.

    The install can be a bit difficult as for me I had to remove most of my fairings just to get access to the wires that need to be tapped into. I lost the instructions and thought it was nice to see they list them online.

    As for the wiring I tapped into my High Beam Headlights wiring. This was the best option from what I could find on my bike as it is an off/on switch, and tapping into your running lights could drain your battery if you forgot to turn the heated grip switch off.

    It's a pretty involved process if you want a clean install. I don't like things looking ghetto on my bike so I gave myself a full day to do it right, and it took about 6 hours start to finish. That includes doing some research into what wire to tap into, lunch, running to home depot, and getting a clean look.

    I've seen others cut holes into their fairings, or plastics to mount the switch, but doing so looked out of place, and the end result was a switch that wasn't in arms reach rendering it dangerous as well. I just popped the switch into the included bracket, and mounted it to my handlebars with the clutch housing screw. Yes you can see the direct wiring connections, but in my opinion it looks good, and I can hit it on/off without removing my hand from the bars. Having some mesh wire loom will definitely help for the finished look.

    I definitely recommend these heated grips, it also comes with an extra heating pad in case one shorts out or breaks over time.

    As far as the heat they provide... I would say on High it feels like you're holding a cup of hot coffee. It's definitely great at taking the edge off, and I found the grips to heat up quickly under two minutes or so. For $54 it's worth every penny. I'll be installing these on every bike I own from here on out.

    Toasty
    Decided to add heater grips after a failure of a heater glove on a trip. Back up is always good. On really cold days heated gloves + grips = tropical. These were easy to install, just follow the instructions. Wiring very straight forward with a relay to shut off the grips with the ignition. Great value. No excuse for not doing this, you'll wonder why you didn't do this before.

    Work great every time
    I use Symtec Heat Demon Heated Grip elements under the grips on all my bikes that don't have factory heated grips and they always work great. Low and high settings. Plenty of heat on high. Allows thinner gloves than without and always there if you want them. Not bulky like heated gloves.

    Symtec heat demon heated grips
    I have installed these grip heaters on my 1977 BMW, 2004 Suzuki Burgman 400 and 2014 Suzuki Burgman 400. They heat up in a reasonable amount of time, about 3 - 4 miles on high. hardest part of installation is selecting the correct wire to tap into. I also replaced the stock handgrips with J C Whitney foam grips on all bikes.

    I've been using the Symtec grip heaters for a long time now - they work great. What's even better, the latest models come with a mounting bracket for the switch.

    Trying to save money, plus I wanted to use grips that were a combination of chrome and rubber design. The pre-made heated grips don't come in any options other than black rubber. I've used HotGrips for years and this is the first time I will be using this product.

    I wanted to use my own grips. This kit works out well if not a bit hard to get the grips back on depending on what kind of grips you have. The heating works well. I would prefer them to get hotter then they do - I've tried the BMW heated grips on the 650GS and man those got really toasty. These do work well for the price and I'm satisfied for my use. If its a cool day you'll have to run them on full since low wont do much.

    The instructions mention using JB weld on top of the heater, I am assuming to seal it to the grips better. Did everyone else do this? It seems to me that this would ruin both the heating element and the grips in case you ever needed to work on the throttle linkages.
    Jacob D on Feb 25, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: I did use JB Weld on mine. Not sure I'd recommend it. The grips are a bit lumpy now. I imagine you still want something to keep the grips from slipping though.

    Honestly, if I had it to do over, I'd spend my money on heated gloves or glove
    liners. The heated grips are convenient, but even with good Held cold weather gloves, the tops of my hands got quite cold at the end of the season here in Toronto. (Late November, temps just above freezing, 30 minute city ride)

    The most recent pictures of this grip kit on Symtec's website seem to show them coming with what looks like a bracket to mount the round rocker switch. I do not see that part on the pictures here. Does anybody know if the current kit from Revzilla has this bracket included?
    John T on Nov 23, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: When I ordered my kit with the metal toggle switch the bracket was not included - I called Revzilla and they verified that none of their kits on the shelf had them included. They suggested that I call Symtec and I did - they sent me a bracket for free.
    Would these fit while using solid metal grips or do they need rubber grips?
    A shopper on Oct 23, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: Since these are using a heat sink technique I would imagine that using solid metal grips wouldn't be as efficient as rubber grips.
    I have a 2012 Triumph Tiger 800 roadie, are these warmers a fit?
    A shopper on Oct 25, 2012
    BEST ANSWER: I put these on my FJR1300, the clutch side internal grip diameter is 22mm and 100 mm long. The heat pad wraps round the metal of the handlebar tube, then the grip slides over the top. The heat pad is only about 80mm long and is placed to maximize the heat to the hand. The throttle side is lager and the heat pad fits the same way.
    What company makes these grip heaters? What is the manufacturer's model number?
    A shopper on Nov 8, 2011
    BEST ANSWER: Symtec makes these. Part Number 210019MT

    See more at:

    http://www.symtec-inc.com/External-Handlebar-Warmer-Kit-Motorcycle-MT_p_24.html

    Note the Revzilla photo shows both a metal togel switch and a round rocker switch, but the product description specifically says it comes with a METAL switch, and the part number listed by Revzilla is for the metal togel (MT) switch. Symtec lists these as two separate items (part numbers end in MT or RR).

    Since you will probably only need one switch, it might be worthwhile clarifying with Revzilla whether the round rocker (RR) switch is available from them, should you prefer it.
    Will this fit my 05 gsxr 600?
    A shopper on Nov 19, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. This product will work on any moto with standard grips. Instructions are easy to follow. The plastic rocker switch is passably adequate.
    2005 DL650 - would love to install a product like this, but don't know if it will fit, as it clearly states "fits MOST..."
    A shopper on Mar 9, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: The heated grips will install on any motorcycle that has round handlebars and where you have an ACC wire that you can tap into for power, i.e., a headlight. You would be fine with a V-strom and getting this product.
