    I will be watching for answer's here too. Took in my 17 RTL for the 2nd yr. service. Told the service writer that my hand grips got way to hot on low an I would have to turn them off they got so hot thru gloves. Their answer from in the shop was, it has a low an high switch there is no ajustment for heated grips. WTH I knew that. So 3 weeks now the right grip on low still heats but barely, and on high is even less warm than low. And the left grip quits working on high an on low barely anything. Totally screwed up. You would of thought they would have at least checked the damn grips. Now warranty changed to the extended Best warranty an it will cost me the deductable if the guy that works on spyders decides there is a problem besides, there is a high low switch. Sorry for the rant in your thread.

    Default Interesting....🤔

    Does sound like an electrical connection problem. Could be that the grips are not connected to the switch High to High and low to low, something they should be able to check out easily enough. Might check with another shop/dealer. Many bikes have heated grips and there must be more information out there....

    Some times the little wires that run into the grip get pinched, brake, or short out! There small and the grip some times twists that's when the gremlins come out and play!! Good Luck!! Or you could have a switch acting up, they do see water now and then!

    Thanks, I'm going to take it apart and look for pinched or broken wires tomorrow.
