Replacing heated grips
My '02 K12RS has the "ribbed" style heated grips. They're getting pretty thin in spots.
I know there's a thread on this site somewhere; does anyone know if I can carefully trim off the grips and slide on non heated replacement Jap bike grips, or do I need to use BMW non-heated grips as replacements ?
I would think that the rubber, once cut deep enough, would start to pull itself apart so that damaging the wires would not be that big of an issue. I could be wrong.
If I put on non-heated grips over the heating elements, could I still just use hairspray to secure them ?
Thanks for the help.
