I oredered my 2019 AT DCT with OEM heated grips and that was a mistake.
They have never worked so far and I have an E3 message in my dashboard every time I turn them on. Twice at the dealership and still don't work.
Do not buy them!!!!!

E3 is a faulty switch. Change your dealer.

Admittedly Iíve had my ATAS for all of eight days, been on four rides for about 270 miles, but so far the OEM grips work well. The only thing I will say is the left grip seems to shut off at a long idle stop light, then turns on when the bike hits 2,000 rpm. Iíve never had heated grips, so have nothing to compare them to but they work well for me.

How long should it take to do the OEM heated grip installation?

Thanks. I have a really good mechanic who is going to do the work. He isn't a Honda mechanic specifically but he is methodical and well organized, hope we can be done in 4 hours. Did you really have to take the tank off? This does look fairly daunting on the installation instructions.

It's no bother to remove the tank if it's empty, I take it off to make life easier. One thing I change is to move the 30a fuse to under the seat by extending the wiring.

Not to steer the discussion away too much, but with winter approaching I'm thinking of heated gloves instead of heated grips. I had heated grips on my last bike, and if it gets really cold they just aren't good enough at highway speeds.

The more you've found, the less you've been around.

I own both - I wouldn't be without the heated grips. With the hand guards and heated grips my hands are usually fine, only in abnormally cold weather would the heated gloves be needed.

My heated gloves have heating elements running down the back of the hand/fingers, clearly designed to work with heated grips - IMO. They are bulky and not anywhere near as comfortable as my normal winter gloves, I'd prefer not to use them unless I really had to.

Thank you for the information and advice PTwin.
Do you know if it is posibble to change the switch only and not the grips and do you think I can do this job myself?
