I installed the Oxford grips, and they work great, however use caution. Towards the end of a 6300 mile trip from here in the Seattle area through Mainland Mexico and Baja the bike stopped being able to start in gear. With the clutch pulled in obviously. I'm not positive yet, but I'm pretty sure the problem was the Oxford grips are thicker than the OEM grips, and maybe even thicker when they're on full heat. I think what happened is the clutch switch plunger because the clutch lever couldn't be pulled in all the way wasn't extending fully, so the starter circuit remained open. Solution is to either cut a small piece off the end of the plunger, or file down a little bit of area on the clutch handle right where the plunger hits it.
