Oxford Grips usable as Heatroller?
Oxford grips come with a rheostat of sorts and it occurred to me that it might be able to control a heated jacket liner as well as the grips. This would save having 2 sets of wires, 2 controllers and some cash.
Is this do-able?
I cannot work out the current draw of the grips and jacket combined from the websites, nor figure out whether the bar mounted controller is "man enough" for the job.
Lastly, I assume that the 650 can handle the draw, if both aren't on high - I rarely have the grips over 50 %. Assume a Widder or Warmnsafe @ +/- 35watts.
An alternative might be to hook up a socket receptacle on the bike to take a cigarette lighter type plug for the jacket (and also a tire inflator if needed)
