Heated grip issue after fork service

I recently had my forks resealed and now my grips donít work. Does the dealer have to disconnect them for some reason to service the forks? The display says they are activated but the donít work at any heat level. The battery is 12.4V when bike is cold and raises over 14V once started. It was replaced 2 years ago. Any thoughts?

As a follow up, I went to the dealer today and the grips are dead again. This will be the 2nd time I have replaced them. Very disappointed. Expected more from Ducati. Time to upgrade to a new multi or seriously look at a super duke.

I'm not sure I'd toss the whole bike over just heated grips, but I agree the ducati ones are junk. I had the oem heated grips on my 2013 diavel strada go out recently and when I took them apart here is what I found...


Junk, no different than the $5 stick on heating elements you find on amazon . And the OEM replacement is several hundred dollars!
I ended up installing a set of oxford heated grips using the existing ducati controller and wiring connectors and they work great using the ducati dash controls. Aside from the oxford branding on the grip you'd never know they weren't OEM and you can get a pair on line for about $70.

Interesting. I went to look at some different bikes today and nothing fits like a Multi. Thought the KTM Super Duke GT would make a good replacement but At 6í2Ē itís all about the riding position for me. I am going to look into the Oxford grips. The OEMs will cost $450 installed so your option is definitely worth a look. I appreciate the advice. If they drop the V4 in it for 2020, I may have to trade up 😀

How were you able to use the existing controller on the bike? I love the idea, just not sure how you hook into it.

When I removed the old blown heated grips I cannibalized them for the old oem connectors which I used on the oxford grips. Plug and play.
