Just bought the bike. LH gets hot fast, but I don't think the RH works. What are some usual problems with the heated grips? Since the LH works, I'm assuming it's not a fuse issue, so...

Any help is much appreciated for this newbie to K bikes

Evening Scott

Most common problem is a broken wire going to the grip heater, second most common is a broken wire in the heating element itself.

Trace the wire back from the grip until you find the connector then check for power there with the heaters ON.

If power found then unplug the connector & measure the resistance on the grip side of the connector. (if it shows open then you have a broken wire or broken heating element)
