    Symtec heated grips

    Do you have to ride to get them up to temp... wired it all up correctly but they wont get warm whilst it idles. Just wondering if there is a low voltage cut off?

    How long do they take to get warm?

    Yeah used the heat shrink....  i will charge the battery.  They are just the same with bike on or off..

    Only thing i can think of is that the piggy  back connection hasnt made so i will check with the multi meter

    Wire to the battery with inline fuse Lee they will warm up quick...but as you know they must be turned off when you stop.
