good question, these will be needed as people in the northern states get into the colder temperatures with summer coming to an end.

There was this statement on the website

Internal Sensor monitors battery power level and will automatically shut off the grips if battery power is too low.
Even without knowing if the grom has enough amps to power it, i'd just get it and see if it works as-is, the worst that can happen is the grips shutting off.

I just found out that the company, AME, is in my town. So, I will pay them a visit next week.

Its already getting colder at night. I wouldn't mind a set but we just need confirmation before going ahead with this. I usually just hack it out with winter gloves but toasty grips would be a huge bonus.

winter glove is probably the better worry-free way to keep your hands warm, and cheaper too.

The Grom doesn't have enough capacity to charge the battery while running the heated grips.Save them for the Gold Wang.

Having insulated gloves makes a big difference but heated grips would be nice.

One of the reasons Ill be switching to a Shorai lithium battery is for the increased amp hour rating to run things like these or LED lighting :D

Along the same lines of having enough amperage, how many of y'all think a Grom could support a Stebel Nautilus horn? Every bike I've ever had, I've installed a Nautilus on. Hell, even my '99 Jimmy has one.

Did you know they discontinued production on them? Ive heard someone makes a replacement now but I havent tracked it down yet.

I thought they brought them back though... I know for a minute Stebel was bankrupt, but then they were back.

How does a higher amperage battery increase anything other then startup? The stock charging system won't increase its output just due to a higher amperage battery.

IMO it will still drain the battery while running if high amperage accessories are added (probably ANY electrical accessories on a Grom).

Just an update - it does. It's an excellent improvement. The installation was a bit tight, though. :)
