Re: Heated Grips rocker switch

Hi there.
On my 96 DR the heated gripe have 2 settings. The switch is a rocker switch with low and high settings with off being the ditch centred.
Hope this makes sense.
Good luck

Welcome from Gtr Manchester.

If you have tried using the search facility, there is no such thing as a silly question as what seems simple to one individual (as they have done it many times previously) may prove problemetic until a newcomer understands the technique.
