The Barkbuster S-7 fits the recent RT. It can also be adapted to other models not on their list by machining bar weights to proper dimensions, a fairly simple job. I mounted a set on SOs R1100S, for example.
Keeping a relaxed hold on the grips can reduce that heat transfer
[QUOTE=iMav;823007]You guess incorrectly. :)
I'm going to buy some wind deflectors that should help.[/QUOTE]
Check out Wunderlich. :thumb
Here's the bike with the RS mirrors as well.
I'm back to the OEM windsreen, Cee Bailey + 2 here. I had no wind at all with that one. Might be good if I was riding in real cold weather, but I don't much.
Those are the ones I want to get.
Some physical differences among humans in evidence.
Few, I think, can or will continue to hold onto something that's going to burn them or give them blisters.
Apparently there are some people who can ... perhaps because their sensitivity is reduced. Something apparently one needs to know about oneself before using heated handgrips.
On a few other forums, others have expressed similar experiences...but only during long-duration endurance rides.
I felt no discomfort nor showed signs of any irritation until I was a good 12-14 hours into my ride.
Moose Racing, about $25 and some zip ties. They're foam material. Biggest honking wind protection I've ever seen.
My RT has excellent wind protection for my hands. It's only in really cold weather that I can run my grips for very long. Usually for 20 minutes on, 10 off. Never got burned, but it's just too warm to leave them on for any significant period of time.
I bought and mounted the Wunderlich deflectors. Great improvement!
I believe the manuals for our G650GS and R1200GS state the high setting on the heated grips should only be used briefly, to warm the grips , and then the setting should be reduced to the low position for the duration of the ride.

I ran mine in the low and off positions 85-90% off the time. I ran them in the high position for only limited durations.
I suppose this is like the old "frog in the pan of water" story, right?
Drop a frog in a pan of boiling water, and he'll jump right out.
Drop a frog in a pan of cold water, turn on the burner, and he'll allow himself to be cooked.
I hope your hands heal up and you have no lasting effects from this incident.
