Oxford Hot Grips to Fuse panel

I am thinking about buying the Oxford Hotgrips. Is there a way to wire this to my aux fuse panel I have. my fuse panel is already hooked to a relay so it makes since to just hook it to it, has anyone else done this? Thanks

I didn't do mine that way, but I don't see why not. Wired to the battery you might have less of a voltage drop, but unless you are riding in sub freezing weather you will probably never have the grips on 100% as they get very warm. Make sure the controller on the grips is a model V.7 or greater, some of the earlier controllers had issues.

Edit:
If you wire them directly to your battery it won't (shouldn't) drain your battery completely, because they will turn themselves off if the voltage drops below ~11.5v.

Super easy. Route the wiring to the fuse panel. Red to positive, black to negative side of panel. Insert proper fuse into panel and your done.
