    That DualStar kit actually looks like what I have...see my previous post...

    Also one thing that concerns me is the wire flexing repeatedly over time as the throttle is twisted (I think that the weakening caused by this is why my grips don't heat evenly). How does the factory setup deal with this?

    Veg, here's a thought:

    The clutch side grip mounts on metal, the throttle side mounts on plastic - so - the clutch side looses alot of heat as the bar dissipates it. The stick on electrodes I installed included a resistor which I put in line to the throttle side so it doesn't generate as much heat, which in turn seems to even things up a bit.

    Your right though about that flex. Eventually the throttle side is going to fail.
