Found this on another site,
placed 4 - 160k resistors between the following pins on the seat plug connector:

Pin 3 to pin 7
Pin 3 to pin 10
Pin 6 to pin 4
Pin 6 to pin 8

This replaces the seat thermistors with fixed resistors and
the heat control unit allows the heated grips to work.

I believe any resistor between 40k and 200k will work. I picked 160k
because it is the thermistor value at 0 degrees C.

Can't answer your at the moment; but I have been lead to believe that they are " separate " but " connected " in circuitry. Stand by for a response. This post will keep you on top of the heap for what it's worth.

Joe, Two Wheel is bang on with that. We can allow you to unload the Wing, but the fountain of knowledge must remain flowing!:D

Did you perform the resistor job ?

I have replaced the passenger backrest also, do I need to add the resistors to the plug for the passenger baskrest too?
If so do you know what pins need it?
Thanks for all the help...
What are you doing Sponge ? Are you messing with your seat ? Or even worse, the wife's comfort seat ? Talk to me.

No, Jan and I purchased a Hartco seat and we replace the passenger backrest also...
This seat is FANTASTIC!!!
I rode 500 miles yesterday and was ready for more...

I made up a wiring harness with the 100K resistors today got everything from Radio shack. The hard part was getting pins to fit the plug on the bike I had to get small round pins pound them flat and file them to fit but after getting everything soldered together and plugged in I started up the bike and turned on the heated grips then waited to see if everything was going to go up in smoke but nothing happened after a few minutes I checked the grips they were warming up nicely. So it looks like this is a good fix for anybody with this problem.
Good work Madmax. It looks like Sponge104 may need to profit from your efforts. Hey Sponge ! Do you have your old seat ? You should have the wiring harness already.

Do you mean cut the harness plug from the old seat and make a shorting plug with the resistors?
Has anyone found out if I need to do this to the passenger backrest or not?
Thanks, Tom

Hey Joe,
Ever thought about publishing all your fixes, ideas etc? I know lots of us would buy a copy! Guys like you are worth a million on this forum.
