My final post on these. I give the Oxford hot Grips 10/10 for heat but 6/10 for fitment. I think the power connections are a bit cheapo, one cable kept falling out of its connector during fitment but I was too invested in cable routing etc to warrant taking the whole lot off and starting a warranty claim.
Unless they are protected under plastics somehow you are going to have to buy something else to cover up the connections around the headstock area to make them waterproof. I was hoping to get the connections buried in the fairing sides but you would need to make up an extension cable for one grip to be able to do that. Better waterproff connectors would of just been better.
The Adventure Grips are possibly a bit too long for the AT and If I did it again I think I would buy a shorter set. Right hand side required no filing of the throttle and no glue, the fit was tight but was quite straightforward, just a bit too long though, see pictures why. Left hand side was loose, superglue failed first time, reapplied again and I hope that does it this time. I am not sure I wont have to do it again or fix it some other way, it was too easy to slide on.
Can I complain for £50? Not really but I would pay another £10 for better quality cabling. The length thing is my fault, I should have researched the length a bit more myself. I could of filed off the lip on the throttle body to get an extra mm or two and I might still do that, as it didn't require glue I still have that option.
