What type heated grips are you using? I'm lookin' into them now trying to decide which kind and so far the Oxford's are in the lead... I'm also looking into brake light modulators and a kit from Electrical Connection to turn the rear turn signals into running and brake lights when the signals aren't being used. The kit uses LED rings and shows red even through the amber lenses.

Been using these. May not put out the heat of the Oxford. but go under your exsisting grips Very satisified. Ride year 'round and use "hippo hands" in real cold weather and don't have to use bulky gloves.




Heated grips is the question and our Dual Star Heated Grip Kit is the answer!

If you ride in wet or cold conditions you know that safety and control of the motorcycle can be severely compromised by cold aching hands.

Keeping those paws warm increases endurance and riding enjoyment (many riders claim that heated grips help to reduce forearm pump which can result in numb hands and wrists). No need to wear big bulky gloves, now you will have no problem keeping your hands warm! This kit is on our top ten GOTTA-HAVE-IT list!!



Mylar tape-style dual stage heating element (4" x 2 3/4") wraps around and adheres permanently to the handlebar beneath handgrips to provide toasty comfort at high or low temperature settings. Extra long 32" insulated wires are then routed along existing cables/looms. These tricky little items allow you to use the handgrip of your choice! 12-volt system draws only 36 watts on the high position.



High quality 3-way toggle switch and connectors included

We use only 3M (VHB) Very High Bond adhesive

Design specific element wattage for each side

Hi-Low resistor has been eliminated! Yes!

Does not require a battery in the system

Compatible with our excellent Grip Cement

Extra long 32" insulated wires!

Alright Mr. Search Police-searched with negative results for LED turnsignals and brakelights that simply replace stock bulbs that arer high visibility. Not interested in integrated solution. Looking for lower power draw and safety. Any recommendations?

i have these in the rear: 2 SUPER AMBER 24 LED TURN/PARKING LIGHT BULBS 1156

and these in the front: 2 AMBER 24 LED PARKING/TURN SIGNAL LIGHT BULBS 1157 2057

videos of comparison. crappy video as it was a cell phone at the time. when i get the bike back together i can do a better comparison.

front: front.3gp - Windows Live

rear: rear.3gp - Windows Live

with leds i always try to get the most leds possible. I have never had anyone complain of never seeing my turn signals and never have had close calls with it. I just make sure i use them every time.

you have a lot of room for bigger bulbs in the turn signals also with the tail lights (tail lights and headlight are the only lights on the bike regular bulbs) i am getting ready to put leds in the rear as i have a blown bulb in it.

i am thinking of these for the turns in the future: 2 AMBER SMT 27 LED TURN SIGNAL LIGHT BULBS 1156 1073

however i got stuff i'd rather do on the bike.

They work fine. Be careful installing the rings, not to break the bulb, plus have to run extra lines to the bulbs and splice in the diode circuit. You got to be a little handy to splice and tape insulate it or you could short out your lights. It's lasted a couple years no problem. Could I have spent a lot more for a twin bulb solution...sure. Hope that helps.
