the heated grips are not working on my rs. the fuse is good
neither grip heat works so i am leaning toward the switch as the culprit.
any ideas of where to start and what to test would be a great help

Both the left and right heated grip go to a common electrical connector near the headstock. This connector is known to get some corrosion. Check for voltage there first.
Be careful removing the spade connectors from this connector. The grip wires are very thin. Also check the resistance of each individual pair of grip wires while you have them disconnected.

If you look into the "void" behind your fairing, in front of the the "gas tank" you will notice that the heated grip wires are connected to a plug/junction. Check the integrity of the connection. I can't imagine what else it could be.

If your stock grips are starting to crack/fall apart, you might find it a good time to carefully peel off the stock grips and inspect the heating elements. Most 1 inch aftermarket gel grips are effective replacments.
