The heating element is moulded into to OEM rubber grip.   It’s not possible separate them.  Same goes for the switch.......

I agree with Hartley, I have the Oxfords on another bike, they defiantly get hotter than my CT 5 position grips. :028:
 
While I’m ok with the heated grips I have, i’ve been wondering what to do when/if the grips wear out, and have been considering adding a thin foam sleeve now, so as they don’t.

Anyone tried this?

I had foam covers on my previous CT which had 3 position heated grips, they were a little better on the heat front. They were called grip puppies. I bought them mainly as I find the standard grips a little too small in diameter, (something else the Oxfords resolve)They were fine.

Here we have heated Gerbing and Hotwired Sedici gloves.  In combination if needed with the stock hand/wind protectors (bark busters) we are set for colder weather
