360 or 180 degree Heated grips

Hi,
How do you know which you have ? Do Honda still do both or have they moved to all being 360 ?
Cheers Justin

Wouldn't consider them as they are a waste of money. Heated gloves every time they are more effective heat all your hand cheaper than grips and when you sell the bike you take them with you. Buy Gerbing gloves and you get a lifetime guarantee on the heating elements.

I fitted OXFORD ADVENTURE grips . . .360 degree and four settings . . .I'd never had heated grips on my two previous bikes, but after having these, I would never be without them , ... around £150 total including fitting by dealer . . .no brainer in my opinion, but each to their own eh ! (by the way, I also have "Grip Puppies" fitted to the bars and the Oxford heated Grips work perfectly through these).

So you paid £150 for heated grips that only heat the palms of your hands so the outside of your fingers will still cramp from the cold then you spent an extra £15 on grip puppies plus the cost of your winter gloves maybe £100 plus so in total about £280 when you could have bought a pair of top quality heated Gerbing gloves for £110 that did exactly the same and saved you £170 and when you sell the bike the heated grips are gone and its a no brainer as far as you are concerned well I'm glad you are happy

Geoff as long as you are happy that is all that matters ... Ignore people who find pleasure in running you down.

I must be the cheap skate out if the gang then. As I bought a set of Oxford Hot hands, which are the wrap around type for £30 at cost price , and they are 8yrs old and on my 3rd bike. Backed up by a pair of winter gloves supplied by BMW which my Dad used some 12+yrs ago { who said that BMW couldn't make a product that would last }

Anyway, I'm toasty so grips work for me :033:
