Ocford Sport grips. Smart controller turns off if you forget to and the 4 levels of heat are great for various conditions. Sealed in the event of riding in the rain.....or snow. Price point is great. Heated gear that is out in the elements is not something you want to find the cheapest one. Being as your hands are exposed to a lot of wind on a naked bike, the single or dual level heat grips won't cut it.

Just ordered the Oxford ones.
I think my right hand may be getting too much vibration as well. Seems to get sore fairly quickly.

Always wondered about how good heated grips actually are when it's the tops of your hands that get the cold wind. Years past, I bought a set of Gerbings heated gloves that were great in all kinds of cold, but still not sure about just heated grips.

I've used heated grips and the heat from the palms radiates out to the tops. I've ridden in temps down as low at 4C (38F) and speeds around 120K (75mph) and they work. Your hands will get chilled but they will stay warm enough to stay mobile with no stiffness.

Makes sense. Have to keep that in mind. I'm typically pushing 30° on my morning commutes to work..

The Oxford grips have the wires coming off the grips. Not much you can do about that. They are encased so they look like a cable or line of some sort.

What a palaver.
initially used double sided tape to stick the grips down but the heat caused the adhesive to soften.
stuck them down with superglue and got it under the throttle tube.:(
had to disassemble throttle and remove glue from inside tube and bar which was in a bit of a mess.

Job done :yo:

Yes the Oxford being hard rubber don't stick very well to the bar or the throttle tube like soft rubber grips do and the heat will eventually loosen grip glue. I ended up having to use a screw underneath to secure it to the throttle housing and one underneath to secure the left side to the switch housing. Hasn't moved in 2yrs now.

Anybody can help me with install for the oxford sport grip? Dealer said I cant install heated grips for the ride by wire system... I think they bullshitted me.

I'm not familiar with that brand but in my duc I use Daytona heated grips installed myself. 5 different heating levels. I ran mine into the fuse block on my bike getting ready to start year 3 work like a charm.

You could add a connector on to the heated grips and plug them right in to the charger port for sure.

I wouldn't be connecting anything there. Why can't you connect directly to the battery?

Why not? Because the battery is hard to reach I thought connecting directly will be a good choice as it output a 12v
Anybody have a picture of the Oxford grips on m821?

Just because you find a wire with 12v on it doesn't mean its capable of carrying the required current. How much current do the grips draw?
