replacing the wiring on the grip. anyone have an idea of the amps going through the wire from control unit plug to heating wire?

aftermarket heating pads.

have a slight feeling this depends on the heating element but just to be sure.

thicker wire wears out after a while due to rubbing.

I did the operation yesterday evening.
The left side came of easy but the right side was a PITA.

I'm thinking possibly ATV style grips would be an improvement since they don't have the inner flange like a motorcycle grip.

If you don't hug the inside of the grip like I do, you may never notice this.
I know it's an old post, but which Oury grips were you using? I usually use
The road grips and pair them with MX style grip donuts. The road grips have a bit thicker waffle pattern and a shorter & thicker inner flange.
Curious as well if they would have fit better with 2 right grips. I've got 1 new set waiting for when my new GS arrives, but they're only $10pt a pair...
