heated grips

whats everyone use for heated grips i was thinking of the Heat Demon External Grip Warmer Kit for Motorcycle (210019RR) with the PROGRIP 714BK Black 125mm Dual Sport Gel Grip looks like a good unit.

I use Oxfords on my AT. I had Koso Apollo on my NC700X and they were good too.

which oxfords did you install and how did you power them up? do they have a automatic shut off when you turn the bike off?

I have the Oxfords as well. Touring style I believe. Mine are routed into an Eastern Beaver fuse block, but I had them connected directly to the battery on my last bike. Yes, the controller is "smart" and shuts off after a couple minutes if it notices the bike isn't moving. I trimmed a little off the throttle side grip for installation, but found out that I didn't need to. I like them and would buy them again. I feel like they're a good value.

I'm using Oxford Hot Grips - Touring Edition - perfect size for the AT.
Mine are connected to the Eastern Beaver PC-8, I prefer the certainty that there is no power drain when I turn the bike off. I don't want to take any risks on a bike that can't be bump started.
The grips perform well, nice warmth easily felt through my winter gloves.

I installed the factory heated grips. Aside from having to nearly completely disassemble the bike, I'm pretty happy with them. They produce good heat on the higher settings and descent heat on the lower settings.

I also got the factory heated grips on my 2017 AT
I wanted the neat integration into the dash and on the handlebars.
I find the 5 settings a nice range of heat with 5 being warm enough for almost all cold cases.

The cost was almost $400 though, and my mech told me it was not a straight forward install. I guess it was quite a price to pay for the neat integrated look.

Why drive when you can ride!

Has anyone tried the A'ME Heated Chicane Grips? They look really comfortable, but I'm not sure of the size and fit. I emailed a seller, but no response yet. Does anyone have any information? Cheers.
