2013 Heated grips

Have the '13 heating elements changed from previous?

Removed my wimpy thin ones for some ProGrip Superbike gells.

Yup!
Those look different than mine!
The old style was a flexible kapton coated element...
kinda like this:

I would suspect that yours is a much more robust design,
and will not fail as easily... but may not distribute heat quite as evenly...
but I think like it ...

PS: I think some other BMWs have used this design maybe it's now just being brought over to the twins?

If that is a photo of the '13 grip then yes, they have gone back to using a wound wire instead of a printed element in a plastic film (like Symtec or KTM aftermarket).

I wonder why they did that?
