My 2019 looks like it’s a conventional throttle tube set up...... now on “ Hold” with fitting Oxford grips..... PLEASE can someone confirm if ok on a 2019 bike?........

Installed the Oxford Touring heated grips on my 2019 AT. Fits absolutely perfectly.
Just make sure on the left side you sand the handlebar/remove existing glue, on the right side you'll want to sand the throttle tube (and if I remember well it was a pretty tight fit). Check the position you want to have the grips before taking out the glue (you want to avoid having the cable in the way of the indicators on the left and you don't want it too much towards the front where it would prevent full clutch action.
Once you're done properly cleaning the surfaces with rubbing alcohol, its time to glue (can be easier if one if holding the bike steady and the other is pushing the grip on). When done properly, the grips will never come loose. My brothers put 50000km on his Oxfords and the grips themselves started wearing out...but they still worked and never moved.
