Heated Grips - Oxford

Has anybody got a photo of oxford heated grips fitted to DL 1000 that they could post or direct me to a previous post that shows them.

I am trying to see how you set up the Throttle side .

Thanks

Rodney

Mine are the original oxfords. They make a sport bike model now which I have heard are longer. The length has never been a problem for me, if it was I would remove the throttle locker.

I did mine that way - wire on top. If I could do it again I would route the wire on the bottom. I also have mirror extenders and they interfere a little with the heated grip wire.

I did the wire on top too... I tried it both top and bottom and having the big lump of rubber on top gives me more room for my thumb under the grip. It was clumsy and confining with the wire on the bottom.

Thanks for your replies on this one, I noticed when you have put it on top you have moved the throttle cables forward as well.

Thanks

I just changed out handlebars on the Vee last night and the trackside heated grips I had would not come off without being damaged. So I bought some Oxfords and WOW it puts out a lot more heat!

I have to give Oxford two thumbs up on the quality of the product.

At 75% you can barely hold onto the grips with bare hands from the heat. I prob ride to work next week "if this damn weather will clear up some" so I am looking forward to trying it out. :beatnik:

It's kind of strange, how the mountains pay us no attention at ll. You laugh or cry and the wind just keeps on blowing.
