My first set of Harley heated grips lasted 8 years. My current set is on the 2nd year.

I’m my experience, the OEM heated grips on the Limiteds seem to last longer than the P&A grips. Don’t know why that is. Also, until the recent redesign of the P&A grips, they had to be externally wired instead of internally wired like OEM.

Stock heated H-D grips lasted 3+ years with no issues. Switched to the Kahuna heated grips this week so I hope they last just as long if not longer.

Had them through 2 winters on my RGU. They were HOT! Barely ever put them above 2 once they heated up.

Crazy4ink, on the 18's, is it plug and play? Any problems with non compatable connectors?

Looking at either the airfow or big kahuna heated grips.

TY in advance!

Should be all plug and play. Worse part would be fishing the wires through the bars for your left side grip. The right side one will just plug into the end of your twist grip assembly.
