    Heated Grip Interchange K1-K75

    Is there any reason why I can't use K1 heated grips on my K75?

    along as the wiring is of sufficient lenght, should be no reason you can't.
    compare pns for each, see if different.

    K1s use barend weights, K75s do not. K1 grips are open at the end to accomodate the weights. K75 grips are closed on the end. You will need to come up with something to plug the ends. Otherwise, should work.

    Thanks guys. It is just a thought for when the grips I have now bite the dust. There are so many things more important to do on my bike that it is not funny. New grips are at the bottom of the list.

    Lynn,
    Why not use K75 heated grips on your K75?

    That is what I have now, but I find the K1 grips more comfortable. When the time comes, I will probably just put another pair on like I already have.

    What I would really like to find is some way to keep the wind off of my hands.

    The late "airhead" R80GS handguards worked out real nice on my K75S. Just a little modification to correctly cover the brake fluid reservoir.

    OR you could buy the correct ones that are made for the K75 and R100GS.

    Then there is another problem with your hand guards or your bike. They fit K75s perfectly. I've had them on my bikes (sometimes). I think I've got them on one of my bikes now. I'll post a picture after I get back from the movies.

    I'm a bit late, but the K1's throttle tube is very different than the K75. You can change the grips-even on heated grips-with some careful work.
