    So I am at the point that the grips are very worn on my 14 Vision tour and offer very little grip.
    I do not want to use grip puppies or anything like that. Though I live in a hot weather climate I would like to use the OEM grips but at the price they asking 185.00 each grip they are on drugs.

    Has anyone tried an after market heated grip and tried to connect them to the stock harness connectors so they can be used as stock? worse case is I can Use non heated grips last resort though.

    any help would be appreciated.

    You lost me at "I do not want to use grip puppies....."

    I love my puppies!

    Why no puppies?

    Are you more of a cat person?

    Someone had posted not long ago wiring diagram for Avon grips to use factory switch.

    Personally I'll give the grip puppies a try when my grips are worn out. Got nothing to lose at that point.

    Why not try them now, before they start to smooth out? I wish I got them sooner before mine started on the 13. I added then right away on my 08.

    Grip puppies have a limited lifespan and from what I've read you can't get them off to replace them. Best to get the life out of OEM grips first.

    I tried them last year they bulked up the grip a bit too much for me.

    I've had mine for several years now on my 13. One does have a rub from where I rest my thumb but that's it. However, they can be removed. They are just foam. When the time comes I'm going to simply slice them with a razor. Not all the way through and then just rip them off.

    There is an ulterior motive on my part. I want to make sure My Vision has everything it is supposed to. I am looking at a cross country to possibly purchase and before I sell my Vision it needs to be right for the buyer.

    The pic is not the actual bike but the one I will be hunting for.

    VISION, BABY!
    Hahahahahahaha!!!!!

    You're crazy, Pedro!!
    You'll miss the Vision if you get the Cross Country.....and you SHOULD try a Indian Challenger, IMO.

    I didn't know you needed heated anything in Texas!
    Indian just released air conditioned seats for it's big bikes. Probably would be awesome down there!

    Great to see your still around!

    I'd love to have a couple bikes at my disposal!!!
    I Gunner in the garage would be great, and a Vision for long trips.

    Just got back from a 3 day ride on our Scouts. The bike can definity do literally anything. Obviously it's not a Vision. Wish I had cruise control on the highway.
    It's happy to cruise at highway speeds, surprisingly.
    Fit all the gear on, and had a bungee net for extra junk.

    Pedro ---
    Make sure you post the new bike when you get her!

    The only Indian I did like was the scout. simply because it was sporty and quick. I liked the minimalist look to focus on the sounds and riding .look. If I sell the Vision then I would get the cross country, if I keep the Vision I may consider a smaller bike like the scout.

    Service for Indian in my area suck, I was warned by many about the two local Indian Polaris dealers. Just horrid. Even the local shop that received my bike from shipping told me the same thing.

    I tested the shop when I was looking for tires, told me I had to leave it for a few weeks??? I said what?, walked away.
