RETURN TO SERVICE
NOTE
DO NOT perform the following steps until the heated hand grips and all related wiring have been installed per the procedures outlined in this instruction sheet for your model motorcycle.
1.
Verify that the right grip/throttle sleeve rotates and returns freely and does not bind on the handlebar or switch housing. DO NOT operate the vehicle unless the throttle functions properly.
NOTE
Verify that the ignition switch is in the OFF position before installing the main fuse or attaching the battery cables.
WARNING
Connect positive (+) battery cable first. If positive (+) cable should contact ground with negative (-) cable connected, the resulting sparks can cause a battery explosion, which could result in death or serious injury. (00068a)
2.
Connect power.
a.
2003-earlier Touring models only: Refer to the service manual to attach the battery cables (positive cable first). Apply a light coat of petroleum jelly or corrosion retardant material to battery terminals.
b.
Models with main fuse: Refer to the service manual to install the main fuse.
c.
Models with main circuit breaker (EXCEPT Sportster): Refer to the service manual and follow the instructions to attach the negative battery cable. Apply a light coat of petroleum jelly or corrosion retardant material to battery terminals.
d.
Sportster models with main circuit breaker: Refer to the service manual, and follow the instructions to connect the negative battery cable at the engine crankcase.
3.
V-Rod models only: Install the air box aluminum cover per service manual instructions. For ALL OTHER models: Install the fuel tank per service manual instructions.
4.
Install the handlebar cover, riser cover or outer fairing, if equipped, per service manual instructions.
NOTE
To prevent battery drain, the heated hand grips are designed to function only with the ignition switch ON. The hand grips produce maximum heat with the engine at cruising rpm.
The heat settings on the heated hand grip control dial range from 1 (minimum) to 6 (maximum).
5.
With the ignition switch OFF, dial the left grip to a number setting. Check that the hand grips are not producing heat. Dial the hand grip to the off position. Turn ignition ON, but do not start the motorcycle. Check that the hand grips are not producing heat.
6.
Start the engine. Check the hand grips at all settings for proper heating.
7.
Tuck loose wiring into protected areas under the seat. Use cable straps to keep wires away from moving parts, heat sources, and pinch or chafe points.
WARNING
After installing seat, pull upward on seat to be sure it is locked in position. While riding, a loose seat can shift causing loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00070b)
8.
Refer to the service manual and follow instructions to close or install the seat.
Troubleshooting
See Figure 21 for the heated hand grip schematic diagram.
Hand Grips Do Not Produce Heat
  1. See Figure 1. Check for proper wire routing. The hand grip main harness must be routed outside of the switch housing. If the wires were routed internally, disassemble the left side switch housing and inspect for pinched wires. If wires are pinched, replace the left side grip and repeat the installation process with the correct wire routing.
  2. Check the wire connections of the orange/white, red and black hand grip main wire harness wires. If a connection is open or weak, repair the connection. Test the hand grips. Otherwise, go to Step 3.
  3. Open or remove the seat per service manual instructions.
  4. Start the motorcycle.
  5. Check for 12 Volts DC across the red and black wires of the hand grip main wire harness. If 12 VDC is not present across the wires, check the fuse in the wire harness and replace it if blown. Otherwise, replace the left grip and wire harness and test the hand grips.
  6. Remove the right side hand grip from the handlebar.
  7. Disconnect the connector on the right side grip from the left side grip wire harness.
  8. Check continuity across the two-connector leads in the right side grip. If the test shows continuity, the hand grips are functional.
Hand Grips Produce Heat with Ignition Switch Off
If the hand grips produce heat with the ignition switch off, then either the hand grips are incorrectly wired to the vehicle, or the left side grip and wire harness are faulty.
Carefully check all heated hand grip wire connections on the vehicle. If the connections are correct, replace the heated hand grip main wire harness, then test the hand grips.
