I know a few places where we can convert those rims to black ones....

To be honest. I may start looking for another set if rims for Knobbys. And keep these for track days. Right now my prime interest is finding a glue for my grips. And getting my panniers to work on this bike.

When I put the heated grips on mine I used hairspray for the grips. They slide on easily while it's wet, and sticks very well after it dries.

I always used hair spray on standard grips. Never had a problem.

I used epoxy on my heated grips. It's permanent though. They needed cut off when I replaced them.

Wouldn't the heat from the grips exceed the melt temperature of the spray?

I found that the heated grips companies recommend epoxy rated for 250 degreas. So I bought some. Mine have been glues many times. The heat expansion and contraction breaks down the glue.. The glue used was like crazy glue.

I also bout some bolts to add a ram mount to my dash. I found this write up below. And already hade the parts I needed. So why spend $80 on an expensive mount?

These are what I am using. Haven't had a problem with a grip coming loose yet, after 4 years of use.

Do they get real hot? These get warm, but not real hot like the BM I had. Those could burn my hands when wet.

Too hot for me to use them on high. I have no idea what the actual temp is.

Any if you VStrom owners with madstad brackets have their original mounting bracket and hardware laying around? I want to experiment.
