SO, with the heated grips, not the heated sheets that go under grips.....what happens when the grips wear out? Have to replace the whole thing?

Yeah that is that is case - but after 46k miles mine are still in really good shape and will last at least the that long again.

Just a suggestion. ...instead of heated grips get heated gloves or heated glove liners.

With the grips, back your hands and tip of your fingers freeze. I'm considering taking my heated grips off. They are better than nothing but liners are the best.

These are the ones I have . You MAY want to by a thermostat switch too . I find that my hands are doing the to hot dance often on the 990 . I didn't have that on the KLR when I bought them . I just turn them off for a bit then turn em back on if needed but usually I just keep my hands moving .

KTM Grips

Just installed the KTM heated grips on my 2012 990 R. Installed auxiliary lights too as long as I had the nose torn down. Solid grip with a slightly bigger circumference. Easy enough once you locate the correct ACC spades. The 2nd bushing for the right side threw me. I just went with the logical one in the photo and didn't install the second. Hope I got that right. Obviously I wasn't the only one if you follow the link below.

Plenty hot, and you can always install a rheostat.

Cool2 Symtec heated grips work well

I installed a set of Symtec heated grips under my original grips and they have been working very well in Labrador and Alaska!
