Electrical Overload
WARNING
When installing any electrical accessory, be certain not to exceed the maximum amperage rating of the fuse or circuit breaker protecting the affected circuit being modified. Exceeding the maximum amperage can lead to electrical failures, which could result in death or serious injury. (00310a)
NOTICE
It is possible to overload your vehicle's charging system by adding too many electrical accessories. If the combined electrical accessories operating at any one time consume more electrical current than the vehicle's charging system can produce, the electrical consumption can discharge the battery and cause damage to the vehicle's electrical system. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for advice about the amount of current consumed by additional electrical accessories or for necessary wiring changes. (00211c)
This Heated Hand Grip kit requires up to 3.5 amps additional current from the electrical system.
Kit Contents
Kit contains one pair of heated hand grips plus connecting parts. See Figure 10 and Table 1.
REMOVAL
Preparation
WARNING
To prevent accidental vehicle start-up, which could cause death or serious injury, remove main fuse before proceeding. (00251b)
  1. Refer to the service manual and follow the instructions given to remove the hand grips.
NOTE
The twist grip sensor in the right side of the handlebar has a seal cap that protects internal electrodes from dirt and moisture, and also serves as a retention device for the throttle grip.
To remove the grip, a slight tug may be necessary to release the index pins in the grip from the receptacle in the seal cap.
Upon removing the grip, check the location of the seal cap.
If the seal cap is still fastened to the index pins inside the old throttle grip, it can be discarded along with the grip.
If the seal cap is still fastened to the end of the twist grip sensor:
  • See Figure 1. Insert a small screwdriver or other flat-blade tool into the flat area on one side of the seal cap.
  • Press the leg on the underside of the cap to free it from the slot at the end of the twist grip sensor. Pry up one end of the cap.
  • Repeat on the other side of the cap.
  • Carefully remove the cap and discard it.

INSTALLATION
Heated Grip Installation
NOTE
If a chaser wire was not used, air pressure or an electrician's fish tape can be used to thread the wire harnesses completely through the handlebar.
1.
2008 and 2009 Models: Thread the twist grip sensor wire harnesses into the right side of the handlebar.
a.
While feeding the wiring into the handlebar, gently pull the connectors at the end of the jumper harness to draw the twist grip sensor out the center of the handlebar.
b.
Fit the index tabs on the twist grip sensor into the slots in the handlebar. One index tab and slot are smaller than the others to prevent improper assembly.
2.
ALL Models: Thread the left side heated grip wire harness all the way through and out the center of the handlebar. Some models may require an additional jumper to reach from the left side grip to the mating connector on the twist grip sensor (depending on handlebar height, vehicle model and year). See Figure 10. This 14 in. jumper with black/white wires is provided in the kit.
NOTE
Make sure that the handlebar surface is smooth, dry and thoroughly cleaned of all dirt.
NOTE
Before pulling wire through handlebars, run wire alongside handlebar to determine if an extension is needed. If an ADDITIONAL extension is needed, see parts list.
Some internally wired handlebars, like chiseled or models with handlebar mounted turn signals, de-pinning the heated grip connector may be required.
Take a photo of all connectors for re-assembly prior to de-pinning.
To aid in pulling, spray or rub with soapy water.
