Heated Grips on K51 (2016 r1200GSAdventure) - 5 grip settings
« on: January 09, 2024, 06:53:22 AM »
On my 2016 GSA I just set the heated grips to have 5 settings.   I set them at the % I wanted and then pushed it.  I had read it wasn't possible and I know the screen only has the two ticks.   

What I'm experiencing is that when turning on the grips, I get the two ticks.. then 1 tick, then off.  Then I press again and the indicator stays off.  Then again and the indicator stays off, then again and the indicator still stays off.

Does this mean I now actually have 5 levels set and the 6th press is to turn off the grips?   Or is my bike just confused because I pushed a 5 level grip setting to it. 

If this is the case I'm happy as I can use my EZCAN on heated jacket and have the ability to set more levels instead of using an the Aux 2 light setting.

I have added four settings for my grips on a 2018 R1200GS and the TFT shows 4 stages and then off. I have not actually ridden with different settings to experience the real world feel though but there was heat at all levels.

Is there heat at the multiple off settings?

Double check with the GS911 to see if it still shows the extra levels.

Also maybe try fewer levels and see if that changes the indicator.

Look no further than unblocked games 76, your portal to a world of free online gaming, accessible anytime and anywhere.

 As you suggest, using the GS911 diagnostic tool is a great way to confirm the actual number of heating levels and their functionality. Connect the GS911 to your motorbike and check the specific settings for the heated grips. This will tell you definitively if there's residual heat at the "off" stages or if it's truly off.

My wife's 750 is the same and wonder the same we set her grips to 5 and her dash (none tft) only show 3 dots for heated grips when when setting 5 and then you press heated grip button once it's shows nothing press again shows nothing press 3rd time gives me 3 dots 4th time 2 dots 5th time 1 dots so is this the same of it's now actually got 5 settings but the dash is not capable of telling us this info?
Interested if anyone knows the answer to both our questions

I think of the TFT like a TV screen, you can change channels or project whatever you want (within reason) where as the old school dash board is set from the factory to what it can do, (although I may be wrong).
My TFT shows all the levels I added, I only put in 4 as I figured fine tuning any more was unnecessary, will see how it feels.
If you use 4 then you only get one none indicated level, the highest? Maybe less confusion.

Hi yeah but I think that's what we are trying to confirm if that is defo the case, so when we press it and nothing happens are they actually still on but just on the setting which the hash doesn't allow I suppose the only was really is to do it and try it haha

Hands on, literally.
