So the grips say a wiring harness is required for the install but under my spedo it had both the hook ups and I didn’t use the harness. Has anyone else 18 or newer done heated grips, chime in with experience from their install or did I do the grips wrong without the harness.

I have installed the kahuna grips, and they are meant to be Interally installed rather than outside the bar.

I’ve done a set on a 18 and on a 19 rgs with using the plug under the instrument panel. Think it has a purple and black wire. I think the extra harness thing is only for the ultras or whatnot.

Thanks glad to know I wasn’t going crazy, they give you so many wires in the packaging making you think you need it all 😹

I did the same install last winter, big kahuna grips, 14" f47 bars, and RGS. No extra kit, everything is plug and play. The connector is located under the cluster, I think it is the only loose connector left there.

You will love them, good luck with the install.

PM me if you have a question

I got the dealer to install during 5000 mile service a few weeks back. Despite what the P&A catalog says, the extra bit of harness is NOT needed on our Road Glides.

They are a great accessory, though with the temps at around 70-75 in the next couple of days, I won't be using them now for another 7-8 months.

Just installed Fat Bagger EZ bars and heated grips on my 18 road glide ultra, I found no power lead under cluster. Had to use supplied jumper from air flow heated grips and spliced into the cigarette lighter for power.

Yes, the RGS and RGU are wired differently.

Correct. For some reason the Ultra doesn't have the accessory lead in the nacelle, you have to run it from an adapter that plugs in under the left side cover. Total PITA.

Train, I saw your post yesterday. I went to the garage 3 times yesterday to look for the install instructions for the grips but I could not find them. I thought there was a note in the instructions about running the harness on and ultra and where/how to run the wires. Again I apologize I can't find it, I think it's what you're looking for.

Maybe anybody else who has done a recent install would jump in.
