Heated Grips
on: September 30, 2015, 08:36:41 PM
Only had the bike since Saturday and since Monday had it all in bits and been in the garage every night fitting the heated grips and putting the sat nav wire under the tank,WHAT A GAME that was,i bought oxford because they are the hottest iv'e tried,had to cut 10mm off of them,BUT the biggest problem with these is you have these ugly white joining blocks with exposed wires only 6 inches from the grip,so I had all the wires extended so they all go through the frame and join under the tank,RESULT it looks so neat looks like the factory wires,really pleased.

I've got Oxford Grips on my XJR, think they're far better than the Honda ones on my CT.

Sorry didn't even think to do pics and I don't know how to put them on here anyway,hartley when I had the genuine triumph grips on my last bike not only were they more than double in price than the oxfords but full on they were only half as hot and once you got over 50mph you couldn't even tell they were on,so oxfords every time especially now I can get the wires extended.

If you had just invested in a pair of Gerbings heated gloves they take minutes to install warm all of your hand including fingers palms and back plus when you sell the bike you can take them with you plus they are a top quality winter glove and cost less than all heated grip kits when you factor in the cost of the gloves you wear.

I have Oxford Adventure grips fitted to my CT by dealer, very neat job, and 360 degree heat, far better than Honda ones and very affordable. no problems at all after two years.
