It's winter here where I am, so I can't ride, but I decided to test a suspicion. I started my bike up, and set the heated grips to the max setting and let it run that way for about 10 minutes. I went back out and checked it, and the grips don't feel any warmer.
So, is that a valid way to test my grips, and assuming it is, how do I go about tracking down if and where the problem is?
A side question, are the heating elements within the rubber grips themselves, or are they part of the handle bars? Because if they are in the grips themselves, that's likely the problem, as I need to get some replacement grips for the bike. Which reminds me, I should go order those up.
