Hey Kelsow, whaddaya'at b'y!

I got the idea from this thread about grips and put two and two together. If I were to do it again, I would use the Renthal Kevlar tapered grips for better longevity and more anatomical shape. I slipped them over the stock grips using compressed air and secured them with safety wire. The heated grips still put out a reasonable amount of heat - just not as much as before, given the layer of rubber insulation you end up adding.

EDIT: Just wanted to give Gangplank the credit for coming up with the grip idea in case nobody follows the link to his thread.
Ride on.
