I have the OEM 5 position Honda heated grips on my CT. They came pre-installed from the dealer I bought from in 2016 and I have no desire to disconnect them or change to aftermarket (Oxford, etc.) I do however have a desire to switch the OEM grips out to an aftermarket set and was wondering if anyone here has done the procedure successfully w/o damaging the heating elements? Is it just a matter of carefully cutting off the stock grips w/o damaging the glued on heating elements or will I likely find the heating elements also stuck to the inside of the grips and therefore not reusable?
I also have a Kaoko throttle lock so any grip installation complexity is slightly increased because of that as well.
