Replacing Triumph heated grips
« on: January 12, 2018, 11:42:25 AM »
Can I cut the grip off the throttle side or do I need a new throttle tube? 

If so does item 11 here include the tube or not?  Hard to make out.

These are the original Triumph heated grip set and just under 7 years old and are now crap, compared to new Oxfords and the like.

Doing an image search for the Triumph part number, T2040254, seems to show that the tube is included.

I'm going to try and use a Stanley knife to get the heated grip off, they are no good so nothing to loose. Hopefully should be just glued on

https://goo.gl/images/J7M999   just following this thread and found the link from RAT, it does look like THE RH grip includes throttle  tube  and also that the heated one can only be butchered off!

There's a shedload of bikes that use that throttle tube

https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/view/T2040254

so have a look on That Ebay (though you won't find a huge margin between buying one there and buying a new one, they're not exactly eye-wateringly expensive).

Looked at it this evening.  RH grip is glued on but not too bad by the looks of it. Will slice and dice when the new gross arrive.

Started the replacement today.  All going well.........until trying to get grip over throttle tube. 

No won't go.  Outside diameter of the Triumph heated grip tube is 26.55mm  Internal diameter of Oxford grip is 25.55mm

The tube was easier to clean off than I thought.  Required a small craft knife and my trusty gas powered iron with the hot air attachment.  The Triumph heated grip is only glued at either end around the circumference.  Once the grip was off I was able to heat the covering of the heating element and literally peal that off.




Have ordered a replacement grip/tube from Fowlers but will try the Lathe on Monday to reduce the tube diameter.
