I've just picked up a 2012 Versys 1000. Loving the Versys so far! A few have recommended Oxford Heated grips. Two questions. One, which Oxford Grips have people chosen? There appears to be three choices, of which only two probably make sense. Heated Grips / Hot Hands - Oxford Products USA Inc.

Heaterz Premium Adventure - Heated Grips
They will fit onto most motorcycles that use 7/8" (22mm) Ø handlebars. Each grip has an open end to allow the bar end weight to be refitted without the need to trim the grip. The standard length of the Premium Adventure Heaterz grip is 5.19" (132mm). Should the length need to be shortened, they can be trimmed to a minimum length of 4.80"

Heaterz Premium Touring - Heated Grips
They will fit onto most motorcycles that use 7/8" (22mm) Ø handlebars. Each grip has an open end to allow the bar end weight to be refitted without the need to trim the grip. The standard length of the Premium Touring Heaterz grip is 4.72"" (120mm). Should the length need to be shortened, they can be trimmed to a minimum length of 4.37"

Second question - where are people placing the control unit?

TIA.

Paul

Heaterz Premium Adventure - Heated Grips That is what I have and as to the controller, looks like I need to take more photos.





Not the best of pictures but I installed the mirror extenders because my Oxford controller was slamming into my tank bag, plus I needed more real estate for my Garmin

When I bought mine, for prior bike, it came with a mounting adaptor that attached to the two bolts on the left handlebar controls. I believe this is still sold but as an option now. What is left hand toggle switch for?

Yes the adapter uses four screws in the back of the controls. The switch is high beam of my Denali set up, this is the original single pole waterproof switch supplied with the D2 Denali , I removed two pins and swapped connections, so low is on when I key on the bike, I have my Osram 65 watt in the high beam so I prefer running the Denali on high and switching the OEM high beam on when I don't have opposing traffic . My over 6 hour ride in the dark, never had 1 car flash their lights with the Denali on high beam. That is a whole different story with the Osram on, much of that night ride I used the passing switch , as my focus was looking for moose and other nocturnal animals, several times it was several seconds facing headlights, just a simple release of the passing switch.

For the Heaterz Premium Adventure - Heated Grips, did you have to trim the grips? It seems like the Touring ones a closer to the width of the stock grips.
