Huh?

Not pissing and moaning. Just making a comment as to an issue with the lights. If you can't think of anything intelligent to say, and obviously you can't, please keep your comments to yourself.

If there is, it doesn't work

Well, the temperature was right at 32 degrees. If the heat system won't melt snow off the lights right at freezing then it won't work at all which has been my experience. Generally I don't ride...

Yes

I'm saying they are not part of the grip itself. It's like the grip is an extremely tight fit around the heater part. You just start a slit in the grip on the inside edge and carefully cut with a...

LED lights

One of the short comings of the LED lights is that they don't get hot enough to melt snow. Riding home last night I had to stop every couple of miles to clear off the headlight and motolights, both...

Cut the grips away

You can cut the grips away with a razor blade without harming the heating elements. It is a common technique for replacing the rubber part of the grips.

They are there.

You can see the sensors on the bike. My guess would be is that they provide feedback for the on the go damper adjustment and perhaps they balance the spring pre-load front to back as well.

Most of the day would be spent sitting at the dealers shop and then feeling like a stupid fool for bothering them with something so trivial.

Because it's a long ride and a wasted day to take it to the dealer if it's something simple. That's why.

Thanks for the information.

Rt. Switchgear

My heated grip switch and mode button are not working. Has anyone been into the right hand switchgear to see how things hook up. Any idea what size torx driver is needed to take it apart?

I have a lowered version. They only need to be special ordered if the dealer didn't or doesn't order one. I have had three GS bikes and I don't see any disadvantage to having the lowered version.
