The Heat Demons won't go inside the stock Versys bars, as the bar ends are welded, drilled and threaded for the bar ends.Im looking at the heat demons becuase the switch looks really factory and the reviews that I could find look ok. I am going to wait and see what the Versys 2010 acc list looks like there is apparently going to be heated grips? But who knows when they will come out. Its stil warm over here in Sydney so I can wait a couple of months.
I slightly bent the mounting plate to a less extreme angle, and it bolted right up.Also the mount for the controller is supposed to bolt into the mirror mounts but it does not fit nor are the bolts that it comes with long enough. A U-bolt has since solved that problem though.
I checked and and they're still under warranty. After over a year and a half and 33000 miles, yup, still covered. Twisted Throttle is sending me a new controller.
Curious how those AME units work out for y'all. It seemed like they have a single grip mounted button to control each side. Might not be as easy to operate as some other solutions, but it means no switch panel to mount. That plus the grip shape are pretty compelling. Can you easily adjust the temperature while riding?
I received and installed my new Oxford heated grips controller today so I thought I'd update. This new one is version 8, the one it replace was version 7a. Big improvement.One of the reasons I chose them was the dead-simple install. Connect the fused power lead to the battery and don't worry if I accidentally leave them on. If I had known that feature wouldn't work, I might have made a different choice. I was also disappointed that the two middle power level LEDs are hard to see in daylight. On my older set all the LEDs were easy to see.
Damn! This is what I get for being proud of the look of my switch installation for my Symtec heated grips. On a cool morning recently I switched on the grips and they didn't work. I assumed it was a loose wire, but when I took everything apart and tested, the switch was bad! I was able to buy a new switch that's similar and fits in the same hole I'd already drilled in my dash, and now everything works. But I am not too confident that the new switch will stand up to terrible weather.One of the things I like about the Symtec is you get to choose either a metal toggle switch like the one shown in the post above or a black rocker switch. The black rocker switch makes for a very neat installation that could pass for original equipment, IMO.
