Yamaha heated grips review

Recommended Posts

phanomenal07

So to start I was a little disappointed by the heat intensity. I think they work fine for temps above 50. I was pretty comfortable wearing my summer gloves riding around town in 50 degrees. I don't know how it would've turned out if I had to take it on the highway. I had my winter gloves on yesterday at 42 degrees on the highway. I couldn't really feel the heat threw the gloves but I felt like it was making a bit of a difference keeping me slightly warmer. I was comfortable the whole ride. They do blend in really well so  that's nice. Debating weather or not I want to post them in the classified and buy the Oxford grip to compare

Mine are almost too hot on the high setting.  I cannot keep it on high for very long without getting uncomfortably hot, even with my thick winter gloves on.  Did you set yours for a 600+ cc bike?

I did. But I'll double check when I get home

Ditto. Ive ridden ~40 degrees f and have to move them down to medium after a few minutes.

There is a whole thread dedicated to this here:

 

I have found they are decent enough for just about any temp if you keep it <45 minute trip. I have ridden down to 26 degrees. They keep the insides of hands warm enough. The outsides start to get cold after 20 min or so. I use the high setting pretty much exclusively.

 

One thing I noticed is that after  60-70 minutes, they stop outputting good heat. It's almost like they need a break. I rode 3 hours from Seattle to Portland, OR a few weeks ago and it was 44 degrees and sprinkling. After about an hour and a half, it barely felt like they were on. Even when I warmed up and took my gloves off, and let the bike idle with the grips on, they weren't very hot to the touch. That was odd.

I have the same experience as @JBrock and @mjh937 . I've gone to the highest setting only once and only for a few minutes.  I'm usually 50/50 between setting one and two.

Really? I didn't get a chance to check the settings yesterday. But this is very interesting. I doubt I have a super heat tolerence or anything.
