    Hi,
    May be a bit late to reply on this but might be of use to someone else:
    I have a 2019 Crossrunner (may have been manufactured in 2017)
    I have just traced my Honda heated grip wiring to two terminal blocks that include other functions to the left hand side of the fuel tank.
    You'll need to remove the plastic side panel that attaches to the side of the tank to expose the connections - fiddly.
    I found this by needing to disconnect and bypass the O2 oxygen sensor. Thing is my heated grips stopped working at the same time.
    Realising this some time later I removed the bypass and reconnected the oxygen sensor and the heated grips started working again.

    Possibly just a means of saving wire by Honda? or maybe the grips are linked to the engine operation?

    If I were wiring up aftermarket heated grips I think it would be much easier to find a good earth and a good +ve feed and avoid doing what Honda have done.

    Honda's heated grips are a tad weak anyway but with a decent set of handguards they are sufficient.
    It's probably a case of wire economy on Honda's part but, obviously, the grips won't work with the ignition switched off irrespective of whether or not the engine is running.

    What is the general feeling about handguards, I have seen some acerbis items that just use the bar end bolt as a fixing point.

    Depends on the guard I suppose.

    Most handguards do a crappy job at keeping your hands dry or warm, hence I use elephant ears over the handguards from octobre till april.
    Stop making sense

    I've found the Givi guards to be effective and they mount securely to the bars.
