heated grips on ETZ251?

Postby alexxx » Wed Nov 22, 2017 5:47 am

Hi Folks,

Has anyone fitted heated handlebar grips on their ETZ (or similar vintage) I noticed there is a hole in the body of one of the new standard grips I have, I guess this is for cable entry? would this prevent me from using standard heated grips?

having enough electrical power to run them would be the big problem

Hole in the grips isn't for a cable. Usually there for the fixing screw for end cap or mirror.

You don't have to have the hole in the grip however.

You can loosen and shift the brake cylinder, choke and clamp to the left around half an inch and you will be able to unscrew or screw the end cap. I like doing this.
