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

Great value and a fun DIY project if you are patient These heated grips do the job nicely. Best investment in my bike so far for safety and comfort. They get too hot at times with summer goat skin gloves on but that's on me for waiting too long to migrate to more seasonal gloves. Even the low setting is pretty intense. A dimmer type switch would be ideal. Installation electrical guide could be more clear with links to manufacturer related diagrams so I had to do my own research. I installed it in an afternoon(getting grips off and on again over the heating elements was a bear). Not difficult just time consuming. November 29, 2014
Not very warm... The Symtech heated grips I put on my VFR were awesome! The high setting was too hot, low setting perfect. These Heat Demon's I put on my Concours are barely warm on high and essentially have no heat on low. It's all wired perfect. I'm am not pleased with this. The kits look and are all wired the exact same. I firmly believe they are the exact same set, but the performance/output is markedly different. I would not recommend... October 20, 2014
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.

Easy to install This is the fourth bike I've installed these grip heaters. I like them as they allow me to use my favorite grips. September 29, 2014
K.I.S.S. Philosophy at its finest These Symtec heated grips replaced my OEM Yamaha heated grips, for a fraction of the cost. Seems as if Yamaha over-engineered itself, and thus ended up breaking a wire a 1/16" away from where it enters the molded throttle side grip on a cold morning heading back from CO to IA. The Symtecs: a) let you decide what grip you want to use b) come with a variety of wiring possibilities with the instructions c) work even better with a warm 'n safe heat controller. d) just work August 4, 2014
Heated grips, great deal Heats grips quickly, makes cold weather riding much more enjoyable, without having to use heated glove liners or gloves, & dealing with the cords. May 5, 2014
Symtec Heat Demon Set these up on my V-Strom for an upcoming Alaska trip. Rode around local with them and they have surprised me. It takes them a while to get worm but they get warm. Will be nice on those cold rainy days. I've done the ride up without them but have had some cold hands too. So this year I am gonna have a little more comfort. May 5, 2014
Great Kit installed these on a 2012 CBR250r along with some new grips, they work great! I did add a small relay and power block under the seat for a "better" setup, but this is not required. April 2, 2014

Jacob D asked: 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. Feb 25, 2014

Jon Paul S: 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)

Daniel B: Hi Jacob,

I shared your concerns, but ended up using a small amount of epoxy under each grip. You need something to keep your grips from slipping when they heat up.

John T asked: 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? Nov 23, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel M: 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. Nov 24, 2014

Paul C: I called to ask them the same thing and they will ship either one. I had them pack a black low profile rocker switch not the big 70's looking thing in this photo. It's been over a year and the grips still work great. Nov 23, 2014

A shopper asked: I have a 2012 Triumph Tiger 800 roadie, are these warmers a fit? Oct 25, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Peter B.: 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. Nov 27, 2012

RevZilla: The Heated Demon will does fit most bikes. However, you may have to cut off your original grips if they are glued on making them unusable once you are ready to install the heating elements. You may want to order a set of replacement grips at the same time so you can speed up the installation process. Oct 25, 2012

OldManRick: Symtec makes these. Part Number 210019MT

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.

blinkgold311: 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. May 4, 2013
