Was riding today on the highway and went to turn off my heated grips - for the 2010-2014s, this involves pressing the starter button wayyy in to engage the menu and select off / min / mid / max. I pressed it once while riding and the throttle cut out.. wtf!! I was going about 70mph and started decelerating, and then it came back. Tried it again, yep - engine running, bike electronics on, but throttle was non-responsive. I got to a straight bit with no cars around and tried it again to test it, and it worked normally. Weird fluke? Anyone else had this happen?

I tried searching "throttle cut out" in this forum, but got no similar issues cropping up.

I think the kill switch switch needs replacing, it costs around 70 GBp/100 USD to buy, the connector is under the tank, so panels off and lift tank to fit.

(have had 4 replaced so far on my 2010, symptoms as you describe on/off/on strange behaviour, it gets worse and could dangerous if you are on a motorway and/or corner, openning switch doesnt help as damage is usually not visible)

I have a new 2014 so no miles really but I wondered if I'd see any issues related to the heated grips and pushing the starter button.

I've had mine for a year now and haven't had any problems with it other than the fuel gauge issue. I have a bit over 7,000 miles on it and it has seen a fair amount of wet riding too.

I wouldn't worry about it if you aren't having problems. Just ride it and if anything comes up have it addressed while the bike is still under warranty.

It's still under warranty, right? Have the local dealer fix it.

That's a safety hazard.

Call me stupid but the Pikes peak never had heated grips from the factory, only the touring and GT models.

Yes correct. The PP did not come standard with the heated grips. However they can be fitted as a genuine part from Ducati. All Ducati dealers can access the part and install just like from factory.

The heated grips are no different to the S touring and the GT. They are the same.
