Beverly Hills, CA October, 2013: When people come up with simple brilliant ideas, it usually goes no further than just a simple brilliant idea. GripAce™ inventor and motorcycle enthusiast, Timothy Ledford had the same inspiration of a brilliant idea that turned into a classic American success story with no compromise. Timothy envisioned putting all his motorcycle switch controls under his fingers in his left hand grip, a simple, light bulb come on idea. Of all the incredible improvements in motorcycle design and performance over the last 4 decades there has been no significant changes made to the switch systems on motorcycles. From this idea in 1990, Timothy came up with a motorcycle switch system that is multi patented and manufactured by his company, Grip Ace Industries, and being used around the world.
The GripAce™ hidden switch system controls your turn signals, hi/lo headlights, horn and starter. It also allows handicapped riders that are missing a hand or arm, to control all the necessary switching functions to ride safely and obtain their motorcycle riders license.
Regardless of motorcycle type or hand size, you can position the switch pad so that it’s attainable for the owner of the motorcycle. The GripAce™ system can be made to work with or without the stock switches, imagine that? Harley Davison did a beautiful job with throttle by wire while GripAce™ has completed the “Ride by Wire” system for all motorcycles. Custom motorcycles builders of cruisers and sport bikes have embraced the GripAce™ because now they can removes all excess wires and switches from the handlebars, allowing for the ultra cool streamlined look and remain legal.
Riders are also saving a fortune in labor when wiring their handlebars. The switch pad can be custom fitted to most billet or rubber grips and even in the handlebars. Grip manufacturers are starting to add the GripAce™ system to their own line of hand grips. How about an internal throttle and internal clutch with switches in the handlebars? It’s now possible and feasible.

button pad installed in the left handlebar for thumb operation
The GripAce™ hidden switch system adds self canceling turn signals and hazards lights to motorcycles not equipped with such functions. The riding safety for many riders will be increased because the rider maintains positive control of the motorcycle, without lifting their thumbs, while activating the starter, turn signals, horn and hi/lo beams switches. In addition to these standard functions, the system can be used to control accessories like air ride systems, L.E.D lights, ETC. Ideal for the tech minded, button pushing generation.
The GripAce™ HIDDEN switch system retails for $399.95
