Oxford Heaterz Cruiser Heated Grips
The grips were easy to install. I would recommend using a gel glue instead of the thin glue included. I used the Oxford heated grips in 40 degree temps while wearing Columbia Omni Heat gloves. I had to turn the grips down to 25%. I can't wait until it gets colder so I can see how well they work in lower temps. They really help keep you comfortable which increases your riding time, and that's is what it's all about. I love this product.

Hard but warm. Buy heated Gloves instead.
Product is not hard to install and well manufactured. Suggest just putting the controller on your tank as it looks OEM anyways. They get pretty hot and definitely make a big difference in riding comfort and help keep the cold away. However my bike doesn't have hand guards so the wind still hits my hands and keep them from getting too hot. I can't feel much of a difference in the different settings and normally keep it at 100%. I have a 30 min one way commute and have ridden with them down into the teens. The grips are definitely much harder than OEM grips and not as comfortable. Nothing wrong with these grips but I would suggest keep the OEM grips for comfort and get heated gloves instead since they are more effective anyways.

Very hot, easy to install.
In 30°F weather I only turn these grips up to 50%. I have some good First Gear gloves that are OK to about 45°F and with these grips I can ride in the 20°s no problem.
Getting the stock grips off of my Triumph Bonneville was the hardest part of the install. With a little windex and a small screwdriver in the old grips I was able to finally get them off without damaging them. The new grips fit snugly and I only used a couple drops of the included super glue on the left side grip. The controller is very basic and I wish it had a battery saver circuitry like other grips. Hopefully I never forget to turn them off and drain my battery when I turn my bike off.
I had to cut the threaded portion of the grips off to fit my bike. I used bar end mirrors.

Pretty easy installation
I installed these on a Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager 1700. The grips fit perfectly (1" bars) and I had there old ones off and new ones on in less than 20 minutes. Rather than run the power wires to the battery, I connected them to the auxiliary power ports in the fairing. Gave them a test run and they heated up quickly and evenly. And they get hot on the high setting! I think these will definitely fit the bill this winter!

Works as advertised
Works well. Gets nice and toasty warm on medium setting. Installs easily with plug in connectors. Only issue is it does not come with a handle bar clamp to mount switch. Only comes with adhesive tape and that wont hold it. I'll have to figure out a way to hold it on.
