Arrow best heated grips

so... lots to choose from. some as cheap as a couple bucks on fleabay. who's using what, and are you impressed

if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?

I'm using the Oxford Premium heated grips with a v8 controller and they are AWESOME.

Great grips without the big ugly controller on your handlebars and 6 individual heat settings. Not cheap but worth it

I went the cheap route with the BikeMasters. Got them on amazon. Installation wasn't exactly easy, they're insanely tight, and DO NOT USE SUPERGLUE. They get hot as hell though and work fine through grip puppies.

Amazon link.

I concur +1 for the A'ME grips. I've had them on my Versys since month one. Now 10K miles later with no problems. For sure like not having a bulky controller on the bars, and they REALLY put out the heat. I rarely go higher than #3 with them.

I have Oxford Heaterz and love them. It hasn't been cold enough yet for me to use them on anything but the lowest setting. I can't imagine using them at 100% power. Easy to install, too.

I have Oxford Heaterz on both the Versys and KLR, work well and are easy to install.

Or was that look THEN leap?

I also went with the Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure grips. They're super warm through my grip puppies and I rarely need them over 50% power unless it's sub 15f.

It's good to hear that they're working well with Grip Puppies on. I removed mine and assumed that I wouldn't be able to use them again.

It probably takes longer for them to get warm than without the GPs, but they get good and hot...

If you include the cost these are the best heated grips. $17 US/$23 CDN including shipping from China and included heat controller. Two heat settings, 50C/120F and 75C/170F

I've got the super cheap ones from fleabay. They work great and are super warm. So, they have my vote!

I've got these R&G Heated Grips For 7/8-inch Diameter Handlebars - TwistedThrottle.com

work great, but I find myself wanting heat on the tops of my fingers so planning to get heated gloves or glove liners.

Oxford Heaterz here on my KLR...Had them for about 1.5 years, work great on 50 to 75%...it was 32°f this morning. I have the OEM brush guards to block wind and I wear a winter MC glove. Without guard? Not sure if grip alone would do it.

On my Versys, I have the Oxford Rainseal Muffs

I really like the mitts,muffs whatever you call them. Got mine at amazon listed under ATV Mitts for about $25.00 shipped. With these and heated grips its like having you hands in a nice warm oven...Had them on the Versys. Now use them on the FJR

the originals were called Hippo Hands.
