Are heated grips "really" worth it????
I am gonna have to say......why did I wait 3 years to finally do this?:rolleyes1: With some good motivation from Firedog45 and Badtraindriver, I finally bit the bullet and bought some Friday. I went with the Oxford Heaterz, I did allot of searching and found them to be the ideal grip for me. BTD came over today and we got them all installed, actually very simple and straightforward. I like that the grip is the heater, and I don't have to fool with heater tape. The controller even shuts off, should you forget to power down "at 11.5 volts". Were we both not so anal, we could've gotten done pretty quickly....we just had to route the wiring JUST RIGHT. I mounted the controller to the cross bar on my Pro Tapers, I really like the location. Very bright LED's to let you know the power is on.......and these boyz heat up FAST!!!!!:eek6: I highly recommend this product for these reasons......easy install, parts can be replaced, heat up FAST, great quality grip, looks and works great, and the "price is right". I got mine at the Iron Pony for $51 out the door, and some of you paid how much for the OEM grips????? I will be slipping some grip puppies over them, that should help them last even longer.
So in closing, if you are considering heated grips........git er done!!!!!!!! Thanks again Matt for helping me today, I always enjoy wrenching with ya.
