    Honda heated grips

    I've a 19 plate CT with the Honda headed grips with 5 settings. They seem really weak.. If they are on the are on setting 5 and even then they are only warm at best! Is this normal? I've heard they aren't the best but that bad? Is there a check that can be done to see if they are faulty? Still under warranty but stuck in lock down..

    Thanks..

    I have no complaints about the Honda original heated grips. My CT is from 2014.

    Yep - as Hartley says, they really are that bad and I’ve done exactly the same and replaced them with Oxford grips.

    If you try Heated Grips in the search option you can find a dozen of pages with the same subject.

    Yes a search does show up lost for heated grips.. Heated grips for sale.. Heated grips wanted. Also the early 3 stage grips but I didn't find anything on the updated 5 setting updated grips..

    Hence asking the question...

    The 3 stage were better if only marginally.  I really don't need them so went OEM anyway, for the rare occasion I need them.  If I was North of here Oxford for sure.
