    Excellent looks very neat. Do they wrap right round the bar? ie heat the grip thru 360 degrees?

    I have oxford brand heated grips fitted to my bike very easy to install. Had to remove the fuel tank to make the wiring nice and neat. Very happy with them had to ride to work 6.30 am couple days ago my hands were nice and toasty. Just one bit of advice is when connecting the power wire make sure you find an ignition wire that is not active when the key is turned off otherwise there could be a chance of having a flat battery.I picked one of the light wires under the fuse box and connected the negitive terminal straight to the batttery. I have had them on the bike for about a year and haven't had any problems.
    Life's pretty straight without twisties!!

    thnx for the answers but im really only interested in the orignal heated grips.
    I think it looks less messy than the others.
    But since they are quite expensive i was considering installing them myself if its not to complicated

    Re: heated grips,complicated to install?

    So you are aware, I had a number of problems with my heated grips that were fitted by the dealer, eventually it turned out to be a dodgy switch......I wonder if they would fix them if they were customer fitted?

    I can't see them being difficult to fit, no more than any other brand anyway. I do however liek the centre switch on the Honda ones!
