So, my girl friend and I celebrated Christmas last night. We are both going to be out of town for Christmas, hence the early celebration. Anyways, she got me Triumph heated grips for my 2000 Sprint ST...that made me very happy in pants :)

Any comments or insider tips before I try to install these? And, no, I am not going to return them to get whatever brand ones for $50.

puss :-D


took less than 2 hours. simple plug and play just have to cut the fairing. i used a dremel and there is a template provided. you could easily use a coping saw just tape off the area.

Yeah, don't make the mistake I made and try to route the throttle side wire through small hole in the bottom of the switch assembly. Just run it right on through the cutout in the bottom of the bars. And take your time cutting that hole in the fairing for the switch. Other than that, really simple installation.

BTW, the $30 set on my dualsport get alot hotter, but I'm glad I went with the Truimph grips on the Sprint. :)

GF sounds like a keeper!!!

Yeah, 80 one day 40 the next! Being from Seattle the 40 WAS no big deal, but when you get these cold fronts that come in and drop the temp in half, it kinda sucks...you body doesn't get a chance to adapt, so 40 is cold now. And yeah, I do have multiple versions of gloves and jackets for all the weather changes but my fingers still get cold. On the flip side I ride in 105 (then add in heat index) and don't sweat!

Getting the grips and getting them installed is a pre-emptive attack before it gets any more colder.

I'll be using the Dremel to cut the hole, and thanks for the tips on the tape and wire routing...there is no way in hell I'd take that to the stealership to get them done.

And yeah, I think this girl is a keeper for sure!
