What Make / Discarded??

I have stuck this thread as there is still interest and I appreciate like many others a first hand experience such that it eliminates others making the same mistake. Could you mention what you discarded and what you ended up going with, possibly photos as well?

I just ordered a second set of the KOSO Apollo heated grips (for my Canuck Versys...), for $110.46 delivered to AZ, from AMAZON (Pompton Sport Center).

I went with the Oxford Touring heated grips on my 09 V. I love them and haven't used them past 75%. I have the newer version that turns it self off when the battery isn't being charged.

Very easy install except I had to sand the clutch side handlebar for the grip to fit correctly as there was a ton of paint and clear coat on the handlebar. They cost me 96 dollars in the US and I was able to buy them in a store instead of ordering them (same day install!!!). The only real "issue" I had is that I had to use a "U-bolt" from Home Depot as the screws they give to use the clutch/mirror mount are too short for their own bracket (the bracket to mount the temp controller unit). The U-bolt cost me about a dollar.
