Honda Original Heated Grips
« on: April 22, 2012, 10:45:54 AM »
I had the heated grips fitted when I picked up the bike, and in this  :172:  weather I've been using them each time I go out - after the fingers get chilly.
I had Honda heated grips on the ST1300, but the ones for the Crosstourer are far better. The hand guards keep off a bit of wind, but I'm not sure they really guard the hands - perhaps against insects!

Three bars = very warm
Two bars = nice n' warm
One bar = simmering nicely

I highly recommend this extra - warm as toast!  :028:

guys, can i presume that the genuine grips show some sort of indication on the dash to tell you what setting you have them on? Also on the question of the dash, is there a clock and air temp gauge???

YES - On the dash there is a clock and air temp gauge

There is a red LED in the switch on the left hand grip. Here is the info from the manual:

Off          LED off
Level 1    3 flashes, repeated 7 times, then stays lit   100% power
Level 2    2 flashes, repeated 7 times, then stays lit    80% power
Level 3    1 flash, repeated 7 times, then stays lit       60% power

Easy to use, easy to see, warm as toast  :062:

I do agree to get some heated grips mounted on the bike for cold days, but in Switzerland they ae fare to expensive and offer limited functionality. I finally desided for the CLS200 product because

- affordable price
- 20sec delay after starting the bike to protect the battery
- fast heat up below 15C until the system reached the temp
- temp sensor which recognises the temprature and adjusts the heating automatically, so with other words, once you found your optimal temprature, no more adjustment necessary :-) as the systems switches off at hot days automatically and will be back once its getting chilly
- easy to mount (2h, when I did it myself)

In case sombodey needs some help how to install, I'm happy to help
cheers, Christian
