For few reasons, I intend to remove the heated grips on my RT.
First , I don't like the thicker, bigger than average bike, grip.
Would like to install some stylish Rizoma grips. And I don't
find the need for heated grips anyways. A good pair of gloves
will solve the problem. I need the heat on the outside of my
hand. The inside is fine!
I didn't take the throttle apart yet, was just wondering if it
can be replaced with a standard size 22 mm sleeve?

God, now another question. Does your bike have cruise control (2 cable system).

Then I doubt that you will find a generic throttle sleeve that will fit your bike. You can probably remove the heating element then scrape the sleeve clean & end up with a usable sleeve.

Or buy a used grip on E-Bay (for a cruise control 1200 bike)-- maybe find a non heated grip sleeve but those are few & far between. Or buy a junk heated grip sleeve & scrape it clean.

The damn thing looks as sophisticated as it is named:Heizgriff Griffheizung BMW R 1200 GS RT R LC Linkheated grip bar 61317702381 439
Would hate to destroy mine, that is in good working condition. I would rather trade it for a non working one. Anyone interested?
If not am buying one on ebay.
Thanks again, D.R.
