I finally figured out what I was doing wrong with wiring the grip heaters, the LED was wired in line to the grips. The LED was affecting the current draw of the grips. At least that's my best interpretation. At first I though a realy would have to be used, one for each heat setting. This seamed avoidable, so finally after thinking of what the LED was doing and how to over come that problem, this is what was done. Yeah, no big deal to someone that knows electronics. My knowledge is very basic, I was proud when figuring out how to wire a relay!!!

The power to the switch will be fused and only come on with the key to the motorcycle, just not shown in the diagram.

Here's the Harbor Freight windscreen w/ Velcro for attaching. It looks flimsy to me, but others speak highly about it. Not intended to be a full windshield but more of a wind break for the chest. I'll report back when the bike gets back together.
