Question about 2001 Triumph Triumph Bonneville

Ignition switched supply for oxford heated grips

Hi
I have just had a set of heated grips fitted to my 2001 bonneville, but unfortunately they have wired them directly from the battery. If some one inadvertantly or deliberately switches them on whilst the bike is parked this will very quickly flatten the battery.
Is there any auxiliary points on the loom that I could pick up an alternative feed, which will only be live once the ignition is switched on ??

Thanks a lot
Steve

    Hey Steve,

    Try wiring the hot lead from your grips to your headlight (+) wire. That should take care of that issue. Also, bump up the fuse in the fuse box for your headlight another 5 amps from what it already is. That should cover the extra load on the circuit from heated grips.

    Good Luck my friend,

Triumph Bonneville 2004. No lights indicators or horn. Bike runs starting from ignition . relay. Something burnt out? Sorted, new ignition switch and everything 's cushty.


Hi, Porl and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

How do i get the wiring through the bars to the heated grips.


If you remove the pass switch on the left hand switch housing you have room to fit the round rocker switch in the his housing. This makes for a very clean installation. Since in the day time I ride with high beams on the pass switch was of know use to me plus flashing your high beams at a car you intend to over take seems to produce a rather random out come. I traced out the diameter of hole I would need with a scribe and then trimmed it out with a Dremel, test fitting the switch as I went. Much safer then trying to drill a hole that large in a piece of plastic.

The empty three wire plug under the nose fairing is intended for the factory heated grips. I cut of the plug and wired into the power here. There are three wires, 12v hot, 12v signal, & Ground. The 12v hot use the fuse in the fuse box marked for the heated grips but remains hot even when the bike is off. So I wired in a 12v relay using the signal wire to switch the 12v hot with the ignition. This will prevent dead batteries if I leave the heated grips on or if a passer by feels the need to flip switches on my bike; it's happed before! You will be able to tell which is the 12v hot and 12v signal by pulling the heated grip fuse and seeing which wire remains hot.
