Heated grips installation?

looking for a bit of help here. got my grips mostly installed today. unfortunately, i was unable to figure out the clean way to remove the throttle side sleeve. i disconnected the throttle cable, had all the switch plastic out of the way, slid the control assy down to the very end of the bars, but could not figure out how to get the sleeve out of its containment.
so... what's the trick that i missed?

If you're referring to the grip itself, there's a plastic sleeve underneath the rubber sleeve. The whole grip should just slide off like the other side.

no, i understand that concept. the lip area that the throttle cable sits in acts to hold the sleeve in place. that lip is what i am having trouble disengaging.

the lip should rotate allowing the sleeve to slide off if I remember correctly... it's been awhile, but I have something I can post... hold on

got it! there's actually one more clip piece that retains the inner edge of the throttle sleeve that they don't bother to tell you about that has to come off (it is shown in the diagram as the piece immediately below the #2 twistgripcover).
now on to changing out the mediocre stock horn for a real Fiamm!!
thanx for the help, it is appreciated.

Bet you can't get this kind of service and response on a Harley site. Of course, we wouldn't be talking about heated grips on a Harley site.

unfortunately, no such good fortune transpired on installation of the Fiamms. without getting magical, and drilling into the telelever, there seems no good anchor point for dual horns. and only one is not significantly better than the stock bosch, anemic as it is. so, we bag that idea, at least for the time being.

someone did it somehow and it was posted somewhere... there is not a lot of room in there to put an extra horn.

actually there is a way to mount Fiamm horns without drilling, because I have done it. There is very little space as was said before. The trick is to use the original horn mounting bracket, and then use/fabricate another bracket for the second horn. The horns will not mount side by side but do barely fit if they are lioned up one behind the other. It is noteasy, but it can be done. If I get a chance, I will post some pictures, but I am not going to remove the bodywork. Good luck.

Did you install the BMW factory heaters? If not what? What was the final price?

How do you disengage the throttle cable, after you take off the twistgrip cover? I'm stuck...

found a used set of BMW grips for the S, included all wiring, fuse box, right side control unit., everything. all for $150. anyway..to remove the throttle cable.. i found it easiest to remove the top control cover and the bottom cable cover. that will fully expose the throttle grip and cable area. loosen the mounting bolt for the right grip, and extend it toward the outer edge of bar. that will expose bare cable underneath. slide unit back down, keeping some cable exposed. twist the throttle WFO (it's good practice!), maintain firm grasp of bare cable, and return throttle to off. loop of cable will now form above throttle grip. hold that with needle nose pliers, and work cable to go thru slot at ball end opening. remove ball, cable is now free. just like working on a bicycle's brake cables. (apologize for length of this, haven't had my first coffee yet. process is faster than it takes to read this!).
