Hey there; I'm glad you posted this. I bought my Versys used with a set of Oxford heated grips already installed, and I haven't killed my battery yet, but I am annoyed that it doesn't shut off with the ignition. I wouldn't have known about Twisted Throttle's solution if you hadn't posted it, and it looks pretty sweet. Please let us all know how it works out.
On a related note; I took my V out on a very cold day here in Maine last month, and noticed that if I rode with the grips set at 100% heat, the grip would slip loose from the throttle tube, gradually rotating back towards me.
I posted a question about fixing this problem and got some good answers here:
You may want to check this out before you install them.
Having said all that, I absolutely LOVE them!! I can't believe I didn't spring for heated grips years ago!
