Heated grips

I was wondering if someone tried the Symtec Head Demons on their 919?

This kit: External Handlebar Grip Warmer Kit Metric

I really like the switch style on this kit.

I was interested in the Oxford grips but the controls of the Heat Demons is just 100% better.

The Heat Demons seems to be for custom bikes tough (1 inch handlebars)

Finally a decent switch! Reads to me like they are fine on the 7/8 bar - send them a e-mail to confirm.

ever think of heated gear? If you think you might buy a jacket, then just get the gloves. I find that it's easier and keeps your WHOLE hand warm. the heat demons are $150. Thats how much heated gloves are.

^^^ agreed, what's the point of heating the inside of your hand if the outside is still freezing cold, heated gloves are the best if you are already gonna pay around $150 for the grips

Resurrecting a thread, and no surprise that it is the thread of a fellow Canadian considering the topic.

I have been riding into December, and I start riding again even before the winter tire law expires (dont get me started on that law... this year I filed my 2 week dispensation saying: "Going to Ontario to get Tim Hortons coffee"). But -1C/30F is where I draw the line.

I'm looking at the Oxford grips which seem to be improved since the last model. Questions:

1) Will these be an exact replacement for my grips? between the control pods and motovation bar ends I have very little extra space.

2) What else will I need for the install? I see from another thread that the EC Master Ground block would help... the alternative is just putting a fuse and wiring to the battery?

3) Best place for the controller? I would rather it be stealth...

4) Any issues with Renthal bars?

5) Bonus Question: Do any of those grip muffs (sounds dirty) work with bar end mirrors, or would I need to cut holes?

I know there is the debate of heated gloves vs grips too... but I know I'll always remember to bring my grips.

Oxford also makes heated grip sleeves that's easy on and off. Not sure how well it'll stay with the grips, particularly the throttle.

hot hands

I use Oxford heated and removable grips as found here: Oxford Products=

I think I paid $80.00 Cnd.

Thumbs still get cold however and I think some kind of wind-blocker is needed next.

How do you like them? Do they stay on the grips well?
