Has anyone else done this? If so, can you confirm if wires were pre installed like the Truxton was? In general, is it possible to locate the sub harness connection without disassembling the headlight?
I've had to turn mine off at times because they got too hot, perhaps it depends on the amount of insulation in the gloves that the heat has to penetrate thru? As for the wiring...Mine are routed thru the bars and exit thru the slotted hole in the center of the bars, between the risers, and disappear under the tank - they're hardly noticeable. Between the Triumph OEM and Oxfords, I'd still spend the extra money on the Triumph - besides the small integrated power button, you can't even tell they're heated grips. They're great to have for shorter runs when I don't feel like wiring up for my heated gloves.Another update...got a chance to ride for a couple of hours on a barely 50 degree day. The heated grips worked great and without issue. I’ve heard BMW guys say theirs were much hotter than these and based on my ride I can believe that is possibly true. The Triumph ones get hot enough, but I wouldn’t say they get extremely hot. After a while I could not feel any warmth coming from there, so I turned them off to see if I could tell the difference. I could. After a minute or so I could feel a cooling off effect. And not long after that my fingers started to feel cold. And strangely my feet too. I’d say that the heated grips help to keep you not cold rather than warm. And they do definitely allow you to focus on the ride more compared to thinking about getting warm again. These should work as I hoped in allowing me to ride on mornings that are colder than I could do before without them. This makes them totally worth the cost.
Last note: while the Triumph setup is nice and neat, on a Speed Twin there are still cords connected from the bars which are neat, but still visible. An Oxford set of grips from a wire standpoint is not much difference except for the big head unit control. If you don’t mind seeing the control unit, you can save $$
Would you be able to supply the heated grip installation instructions that cover a 2017 T100? Thanks!Here are Triumph's installation instructions for heated grips kits, including A9638125, the kit for the Speed Twin. Look for the steps that pertain to the Speed Twin. It looks to me like a new sub harness is included in the kit and must be installed.
