heated grip
on: August 19, 2019, 11:55:00 AM
Hi, I have lost the top half of the heated grip button on the left bar.  It is a genuine honda part, a piece of black plastic that covers the on off button.  can anyone help as a new complete unit is 300 pound

I suspect the best advice will be to replace with an Oxford unit and have £200 and warm hands

Will say the Oxford are just ok.   There’s is no concern that the Oxfords are too hot.
I purchased the Oxfords because the Honda kit in the US was on hold ( changes or update).
I am aware some complaints on the Honda grip as well.......updated controller ?
I never operate the Oxfords on any temperature lower that 100%.
I have a set of ATV Oxfords on my ATV that also barely warm and never hot.

Good news is..........The left ( with the button) and right heated grip are available as a separate part.  See part diagram:

I almost lost mine as well.  I was sweating it.

Short of hitting wreckers or have a really good parts guy my guess is Oxfords are forthcoming.....
