Hot grips ?

I'm looking for any experience about hot grips on electric scooter.

I've found these ones for about 43€ they are supposed to be 1.5A 12V (->18W)

I would remove the chrome

I would remove the chrome plug on the end of the grip and examine the interior of the throttle grip with a small light to possibly determine how it might be attached. Too much force could damage the potentiometer, so I suspect that you will have to carefully cut the grip off of throttle shaft.

Winter riding always seemed a bit marginal to me - one ice patch from disaster.

And here in the US they use a lot of salt on the streets - this presents a corrosion - and even a skidding hazard due to patches of loose salt left behind when the spreader trucks have to stop or turn at intersection.

The ability of the dc-dc

The ability of the dc-dc converter to accommodate the extra load of the hot-grips should also be considered - I wouldn't think an extra 18 watts would matter as long as you aren't running them along with the headlight at high beam and turn signals on. Any ideas anyone?

Grip removal

I don't know what model bike you have, but an easy way te remove grips on some is with a high pressure air nozzle. Get one with a pointy tip, insert between grip and handle, and blow 100 psi in. Grip will come right off. Best luck.

It DOES NOT FIT

I've ordered and received hot grips for my Emax.
For the left handle no problem it's 22mm like on classical scooters.
But on the right, after quite a long struggle to remove and not to destroy the grip from the handle, the diameter is 30mm on one end (and 27 mm on the other) where a classical right handle is 24 mm :(.

Anyway I tell you how to remove the right grip :
1- unscrew the little black (6 faces) screw wich fix the rotation of the handle
2- remove the handle from the handle bar (everything after will be easier)
3- turn the "chrome plug" by turning it by 90° and pull to remove it
4- plug a thin & long screwer through a little hole you'll made with the screwer on the edge (end side) of the handle in order to put the screwer between the grip and the hard plastic inside the handle (do this gently to avoid breaking the hard pplastic core)
5- when the screwer reach the chrome ring area twist and roll it to unglue the maximum surface between grip and handle
6- take off the screwer try to pull the grip from below the chrome ring (grab it with a piece of hard plastic or your screwer)
7- you'll are now able to plug and roll the screwer from the chrome ring side, and it's now possible quite all around the handle.(you also have to know that it's possible ;))
8- when it's well all unglued : pull on the grip and here it comes
9- check that the diameter is ranging from 27mm (plug) to 30mm (ring)
10- Put a bit of glue inside the grip you've just remove
11- Glue it back :)
