Model 800-023-S is a replacement grip for part #800-023.
High temp epoxy rated at 250 F required (not included)
To be wired only in SERIES so that each grip gets 50% of the available voltage. When 2 identical heated grips are wired in SERIES then each grip will get 50%.
Overall outer length is 5-1/4". Inside bore length is 4-7/8". Meant for 1" handlebars.
Some snowthrowers have heated grips as options, such as certain MTD models.
We once purchased a Yamaha snowthrower because they advertised that they
had a 40w electrical output, and we learned that they had overstated the
facts. The grips did not get very warm because their system did not truly put
out enough electrical current. The only way to check the output is to
simulate a 3 amp load and check the voltage to see if it can keep it above 12.4vdc
If you see a voltage drop that is significant then the grips will not get hot.
To simulate our electrical load of heated grips, use Radio Shack power
resistors as shown on the webpage:
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062291 Buy two
packages of Radio Shack catalog or store #271-132 resistors. Wire the 4 of
them in parallel so that the resistance is 2.5 ohms.
Hook them to your snowthrower electrical output and then raise up the engine
rpm to a normal operating speed. Check voltage at the snowthrower's
electrical output lead while it is sending power thru the 4 resistors. If
the voltage is above 12vdc, you have enough power.
Radio Shack locally might not stock them so phone them first. They are
$2.99 for 2 resistors rated at 10 ohms/ 10 watts / 5% tolerance.
