I know what I'd do with those heated grips.

Could there be further damage within the loom? Need completely new wiring?

Sorry...do you think this is a cause of the broken left hand grip or a consequence? Also the pink is a low resistance wire as I understand, that allows for the low heat setting, so would need similar to replace?

Can't help sorry m8, never had heated gubbins. I normally ride through winter, wear Triumph winter gloves. The southerners will know.  :745:

To be honest. Iím questioning whether itís worth the hassle. Didnít care too much for heated grips on my last bike so not really sure why I care.

If what you are telling us is correct, someone bodged the installation anyway. You'd be best served to remove it all and start again after a bench test and more sleuthing to make sure all the on-board wiring is in good shape. You can definitely get slack on the various connectors but it takes effort to get to the tape, etc. I know since I did it, right? I may have removed the headlight cluster to get to it, long time ago now.

Wow how much are those posi locks over there? Looking at £15 for five over here, as far as I can tell.  :027:

What size locks did you use? Think I might do the same: cut off existing Triumph GPS connector, use posi-locks to change it to sae connector and buy a USB charger that uses SAE.

Try here for posi-locks, https://www.sportouring.co.uk/shop/electronics-gadgets/posi-products/posi-product-connectors/   I know the owner well, good guy, He is doing 6 for £8 as far as I can tell, you might need to phone him though as there are different sizes and the web page doesnt seem to differentiate

As said somewhere earlier, if your heated grips sub-harness from the switch is melting the insulation, you need to replace it, as it'll never be safe or even reliable. I believe that you can get them from Triumph at a not-excessive price.

The resistance wire (which overheats if only one grip working and melts the insulation) feeds the reduced power setting of the grips, i.e. most of the time, so you really need to fix it.

Did you find the actual break in the LH grip? (sorry, been away for a while).

Hi thanks for this. No I couldnít see an issue with the grip or wire from the grip but havenít looked properly (just unplugged the harness for now).

The only noticeable damage was the sub harness.

Iíll take the left grip off to have a proper look and can order the grip along with a new harness if I canít fix the grip.
