Does anybody have the electrical specs for the stock vs. aftermarket (e.g. Oxford) grips? Mine are not working but the dealer is having trouble with Ducati Central in even acknowledging the problem. I just want heated grips that work! Would love to find something that worked in place of the originals. EDIT: sorry just saw the reply from Aaron. Thanks and I will give your trick a try-If it’s any consolation, I have experienced the same with my Multistrada 2012. Gone through 2 sets of OEM grips and now I’m just tired of changing them out. And it is correct, there is no fuse (which seems bezare really?) but it’s all fault isolated and controlled through the dash. Basically if the power source is too low it will switch them off, or if one or both of the grips has an impedance/resistance fault (like open circuit or short circuit) it will isolate until not sensed (changed to a serviceable set).
All I can say is Ducati must make the most crap heated grips ever because they never last for me longer than one season and yet I have had Oxford Grips on a Vstrom that last 130,000km and were still working when I sold the bike. I’m tempted to put oxford grips in place of OEM grips and splice the wires so that I can plug it into the dash control power source. But I’m unsure if the heater elements are of similar resistance and would work?
