Has anyone put a Throttle Tamer on a Scrambler with stock Ducati heated grips? I have heated grips and know that they come pre mounted on a throttle tube but don't know if you can take the grips off the stock tube and put them on the Throttle Tamer.

I wish someone could answer your questions because it's exactly my question, if the answer is no, you can't take off the stock tube from the ducati heated grips to mount the grip on the throttle tamer, I will not install the ducati heated grips! I will rather buy oxford heated grips that have no tube so you can installed them over the throttle tamer. Since I have the throttle tamer, I don't want to have to uninstall it as I like much more the throttle now than the stock snappy one!! please anyone can answer??

I remember reading that they were not compatible. I had the same question... go my bike with 500 miles on it and the previous owner had the heated grips. Wanted to throw on a throttle tamer but read somewhere it cannot be done because of the tubes in the heated grip. Not to mention I removed the grips when changing to a lower profile handlebar and the heating elements of the grip seems to be built into the same piece of solid plastic that makes the tubes. I didn't see a way to do it.

I just ordered a 2017 Icon with heated grips... asked my dealer if the progressive throttle tube reportedly found on the desert sled was on other 2017 models and would it work with heated grips... he didn't know, but he did tell me the heated grips for 2017 have a different part number, so _maybe_ the progressive throttle tube is included in the 2017 OEM heated grips... Ask your dealer to find out for you if this is of interest!

I read the other day this progressive throttle will indeed be featured on every new Scrambler in 2017, not only the Desert Sled.
