Not a whole lot of useable info here, Madmat, but just had Factory 47 12Ē Signature bars installed with the HD rubber chrome contour heated grips I had on the stock bars. I think any standard heated grip will fit the Signatures. Everything was installed at the same time along with CD Truebeam headlight which is a work of art. Canít speak to how long the grips will last. Only to installation and grip performance.
Installation. My independent mechanic made his bones wiring cop bikes front to back for many different jurisdictions around Dallas. Lights, sirens, grips, everything electric that cops have on their bikes. He didnít have any problems, but I knew after watching him for approximately 1.5 seconds I was glad I didnít take it on, but Iím not very mechanical. He used same wiring. Even though the Signature bars are 1.5 inch itís still not easy to run the wires. Kudos to you guys who have the cojones to take this on yourselves.
Performance. I ride with the PGR and committed to do a couple of funeral processions this week in the rain and temps in the 40s-50s. Hadnít broken out the winter gauntlets because Iím lazy and not too bright and my mid-weight gloves were soaked both days. Turned the grips up to 4 out of 6 and they got too warm. Down to 3 and all was well. Pleased with the heat coming out of them. Guessing that with the gauntlets on and temps in the high twenties low thirties will be the only time I crank Ďem all the way up.
