Left heated grip sometimes not working

As the title suggests, my left heated grip only seems to work sometimes. Any suggestions on where to look first?

Hi mate,

First of all you could check you are getting a constant electrical circuit to the grip, but it is more than likely that the heating element wire has snapped. On occasions it might just make a contact and restore the circuit. It's happened to me before.

Nice simple solution.......peel the grip back, the wire is protected by a thin covering of "something", lift this with a sharp blade where the wire is snapped (it should be obvious where the wire has snapped). Solder in some fuse wire the same gauge as the original, and bob's your uncle, fanny's your aunt........a fixed grip

Good luck and keep us posted as to how you get on

Safe riding.
