No--but.... Heated grips will only put an added load on a battery, and that won't cause boiling of a battery. What WILL cause a battery to boil is overcharging or charging at too fast a rate. Now, then--when you add heated grips to the bike and you make a mistake somewhere in the wiring, you can affect the charging rate, and it's possible that a voltage regulator/charging system sees more current being drawn than it's used to and it's trying to replace that current as well as charge the battery, and it's feeding a higher voltage/current to the battery than was intended by the designers. You can check this out--put a voltmeter on the battery terminals, run the engine, and turn on your heated grips. A normal charging voltage for a vented lead acid battery should be about 13.8 to 14.4 volts; yours may go a little higher. If you're seeing a lot higher than 14.4 volts, you either have a defective voltage regulator or perhaps such a bad battery that it's screwing up your charging circuit.

SOURCE: What would cause the battery to heat up so hot that it would boil

It sounds like the voltage being applied to the battery is way too high. If a 12V system, it shouldn't exceed 14 volts, half that for 6 V systems. If you don't have a meter, buy one at Radio Shack or any auto parts store for < $20 US or if near a Harbor Freight Tool store <$10 US. Ask for a digital multimeter.

SOURCE: I have a jammed Honda 600 Transalp centre stand.

I have just fitted a main stand to my Transalp 650 , if by jammed you mean rusted i think the only way would to remove it ! if thats the case you would have to remove the springs take out the split pin and tap the main bar out , grease well and fit back using two screewdrivers , use a larg phillips and a small flat screwdriver, lever the large spring down to the spring holder with the phillips and then then flip it onto the spring holder using the small flat screwdriver, then i used some strong cord to pull the small spring down onto the same spring hook ( holder)

SOURCE: what can cause my honda 600 rr to lose power

The last time I had this problem with a CBR it was water in the fuel. We flushed the tank add carb cleaner to a full tank. Replaced the filter replaced the plugs. And the 600 came back to life after like 5 miles of running. I stopped and took it up to 145 with no problem.

SOURCE: hi, i have a honda

If when you re charge the battery it comes back full power and starts the bike no problem then it has to be the stator circuit somewhere from stator to the battery to test this you need special meters and bucket loads of experience even mechanics usually pass electrical issues on to someone else!
sorry I would only suggest taking somewhere to diagnose this one unless you a master electrician?
One thing could be worth a shot is when a battery continually gets drained and recharged they generally end up toasted in very short time and your engine will have more cranking compression when all warmed up so will need the best battery power to re start. could be worth changing the battery and testing this theory - I would highly recommend new battery even if you get the charge issue fixed as you don't get many re charges out of them any way!

A battery boiling dry is an indication that accessories have been added to the motorcycle incorrectly. If you add a radio or spotlights and attach the power wire directly to the battery, you bypass the voltage regulator/rectifier. The charging system can not regulate the charging system correctly and over charges the battery. If you want to add accessories you need to add them using a power wire past the regulator/rectifier so the charging system can properly regulate itself. Hope this helps.
