Talking How to change the trottle grip

I have a 2011 Ultra Limited with an electronic trottle. When I change the trottle grip is there any special steps to take to adjust the electronic trottle when I put the trottle side switch housing back together?

It's much easier with throttle by wire. Nothing to it really just a gear at the end of the bars that slide into the teeth in the end of the grip.

Like he said. One of the easiest mods you will do. just split the control housing and slide off old grip and slide on the new one. I will tell you to do the left one first cause of the way the left non-glue grips are made this will set the angle of any pattern the grips have and so then you can match the right to the left.

Also make sure you put a spacer in the brake handle to protect the brake switch.

Did you buy new heated grips? The Limited has heated grips so if you change them dont you need ones that are heated? I would like to change mine but was under the impression I would have to buy heated ones and they are just so dang expensive. Am I missing something?

I'd do the opposite -- The angle of the gear teeth are going to dictate one of only a few possible resting positions over a 90 degree twist -- The left grip can twist during install to match the right.

NOPE, Wrong, not talking a glue on grip. These new left hand side grips seat in "one" position only. Look up grips on the HD site for the OP's 2011 then click on installation instructions, then read about the left grip install.
Left side first unless you don't care to match them in the event the grip purchased has a rotating pattern.

Not sure what you're talking about on the right side having a 90 degree twist as the right side (TBW) grip can be installed at any 360 degrees.

No, you do not need to replace the heated grips with heated grips. My hands seldom get cold so I decided to forego buying heated grips. I simply bought Kury ISO grips (unheated). I put heat shrink over the ends of the heater wires inside the handlebars, then to be double sure I wrapped the wires with electric tape. The Kurys went on without a problem. I now have 1600 miles on these without a complaint.
