Going to look in more detail as to why the heated grips are not powering up,
As I've already said Motobatt battery is around 18 months old,and I changed Stator (was fried, died on me 3 miles from home after a 100 miles ride out), and for good measure the reg rec was changed same time.
Mainly a weekend rider but always easily exceeding 30 miles and that's a minimum!

Given that these grips were already on the bike when you got it 3 1/2 years ago, how old are the grips? Simply worn out?  :127:
You could have a dodgy on/off switch on the grips themselves, dodgy fuse, connections, wires.

£15-20? Extravagant Art  :008:

You can get one at Screwfix for under a tenner. And even some on ebay for a fiver.

All more than capable of testing anything on the Biffer.  :082:

Fair point Shed. I was thinking of an auto ranging multimeter with min max function and, after my recent shenanigans with the cooling system, a temp gauge for testing the thermostat and ECT sensor. Her indoors had a little wobble when she caught me with her jam thermometer.

In all fairness I hadn't looked at it like that Shed,
So yeah how old indeed are the grips!
Not something I really use that much, ( I forget they are there) :087:
But did attempt to use them about a month ago but as I say wouldn't come on!
Thinking I might just remove them and get one of them gizmos you recommend.
Not a lot of money either :062:

I have an auto ranging meter, and often go back to my 'old' style meter out of sentiment  :008:
Min max is a handy feature, as is the hold feature. Or, if the meter doesn't have these, use your phone and video the meter while testing and look at the playback. :028:

Love the thermometer tale  :008:

I went in the bad books years ago for stripping a carb in the living room, house stunk of petrol for days. Yeah, that went down well!  :431:

And don't even mention the day I reversed over a full oil pan in the garage.  :110: :230: :233:

You might regret not having any heated grips on the chilly days  :008: :190: We all like a bit of comfort!

The Gammatronix gear is top notch.  :028:
