When I have the grips on the high setting for about 30mins or so continuously I start to smell burning electronics. Anyone else also get this?

You shouldn't smell anything if you are moving  :008:

I smell it going freeway speeds with pretty much no one around. Gets very pungent when Im stopped and will go away if I lower the heat settings or turn it off. Something that should get looked at?

Something's not right. Warranty replacement!

I've used my heated grips as well.  they're not as warm as others I've used but they're not too bad.
Doesn't help much either way if you're commuting as you're fingers are constantly on clutch and brake and have little time to actually 'grip' and feel the warmth.

As Podders said, the 'oven mitts' might be best even though they look crap.  Function over form I guess!

My first set of heated grips on a bike. Rode for the first time today with summer gloves on and anything over 35 I couldn't feel the heat at all.  :008:

I think they are heated grips for the return trip of a nice summer ride, it's still 20c but compared to the hot epic days riding you've had, it's chilly, so you flick em on with your summer gloves and they're nice and toasty :008:

You guys need some handle bar muffs. Work like a champ if you can remember where your controls are.  :018:
Some good ones out there these days. In years past the bmw owners manual said to only use the high setting to get things warmed up faster then go to the low setting. Don't know if that is the case still, but I do know the high setting sometimes can mess with your skin if you can't feel it. link to a photo.

Personally, if you need muffs (I have a set of old ones) it is just too cold.  :005:
And Merry Christmas to you guys.

Im a little disappointed as well as this was a big selling factor for me because I ride as long as the road is clear of ice/snow.  These are okay at best but doesnt hold a candlestick to my Hot Grips that I put on 3 different bikes.  Those would make your palms itch because there were so damn hot.  Guess Ill resort to a winter glove for that time of year but I dont care for the bulk.
