I've made it through the first mild Arizona weather with my OEM add ons.  I do notice just a mild difference between the temperature of the left and right, but it's not that big of a deal in my part of the world.  If you are a true cold weather rider, then I'd look in to the fixes here to even out temps.    Usability while riding is excellent.  Installation, easy.  If I had to do it all over...OEM again.

I have a 17 Tenere and no ES...NO heated grip.  For and ES model costing approxiamtely 1000 more than a standard model Tenere, it is hard to believe the stealerships want around 630 to install them (parts and labor). That means the suspention is worth 400 bucks...I doubt it.  I will install myself and be done with it.  I really think the factory grips make the most sense given the plug and play feature.  Where I live the heated grips are a must.

I like the way you can adjust the power level on each of the 3 settings and all done through the dash.

I've got adding heated grips on my to-do list for this year.  2016 non-ES.  I understand the concept of connecting with the factory accessory plug.  The question I have - I've installed a 3CS from Eastern Beaver.  It's using the accesory plug.  Has anyone wired in the OEM plugs behind the 3CS?  Would I lose any functionality or the display of the grips on the dash?  My other option is Oxford, which I have on other bikes.  I'm not too excited about those for the S10, mostly due to fitment.

Thanks much,

The heated grips do not use the acc plug. They have dedicated plugs for the grips on the 2014 and up. They are very tiny plugs, one light grey one dark. They match the color on the plugs that come on the factory heated grips so it is a no brainer. All of this is providing you are talking about putting the oem ones on your 2016.

Thanks for the clarification on the various plugs.  That definitely changes things.

Heated Grip Menu Disappeared????

I have a 2015 Tenere ES.
Last week I used my heated grips using the menu switch and they worked fine.
Yesterday I went to use them again and the heated grip option completely disappeared from the menu!
It occurred to me that a fuse simply may have blown but looking through my owners manual it isn't clear which fuse controls the heated grips........ or maybe thats not it at all?
Anyone experience this? -JEP-

Happened to mine when the right grip failed (under warranty) the menu disappeared, neither grip worked  until the faulty one was replaced.

Original heatet grip is "Plug and Play".
Meaning that when the wiring can detect heatet grip, the software will automatic show the menu.
And when not present (or broken), menu disapers.

Thanks guys I suspected something along those lines. I checked the referenced fuses in the service manual and they were all good.
Sounds like a trip to the dealership! -JEP-

No, in your part of the world, "ES" means the electric adjustable suspension.
There is no way, in the model name, to tell if it is a gen 1 or 2.

Personally I think it can be read from the VIN number.

And no, heatet grip is not standard on gen 2.
Both gen 1 and 2 is avalible as "ES" and non "ES" model, and the non ES have not heatet grip (at least in Europe, not sure about USA)

Slight correction, there was no ES for the Gen 1 bikes, that was introduced in Gen 2, which is the 2014 model year and newer.  The ES version includes the heated grips as standard in the US as well, and the standard model does not.
