EXCELLENT customer help
My new Oxford heated grips are the best accessory I've put on my bike. They were easy to install and work great. The best part of this purchase was the PHENOMENAL support I got when trying to decide which grips to get for my bike. All around a great purchase. Thank you RevZilla!

If you are looking for heated grips this is a great product for the price!
I've had Oxford heated grip products for a number of years and I just replaced my original Oxford heated grips because they just wore out from use. My old grips were well worn from keeping me warm faithfully in temps down to the teens. I was hoping to make it through the winter of 2013-2014 but recently they finally quit. I was pleased to find out that Oxfor has an updated version (The Adventure grips you are now reviewing for yourself).
The Adventure grips are well worth the investment, It was a very easy installation and the improvements Oxford has made to the product makes is "plug-N-Play"-like so that you are back on the road quickly. In the two weeks that I've had this, my second set of Oxford grips, I am entirely pleased.
The control unit is waterproof and hardened for the weather. All the wiring is robust and connectors are designed to keep out the water. Wiring eyelets or loops are for ready connection to the battery and if you are worried about accidentally flat-lining your battery, this kit has a voltage sensor and watches out for you and will shut off the grips (if you forget to) at 10.5v with the battery saver feature.
The grips went on as expected (follow the instructions) and they are comfortable and bring up the heat as they should. When applying the grip glue use care to not foul up your throttle.
With a gloved hand in a few minutes you are again comfortable and your muscles are not tightening from the cold. Muscle fatigue is dangerous these grips provide the solution. Five settings on the controller provide you an improved range for heat. Two larger buttons provide for easy control of the heat levels. It comes with everything you need to install (mounting bracket, hardware, zip ties, etc.)
The price is worth the investment to ensure an enjoyable (AND SAFE) ride with hands that are warm and can safely adjust your motorcycle’s controls. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.
Fitment: 2008 KLR650 (63k + miles)
Riding type: Commuter and Touring.

Works as described!
Purchased and installed pretty easily. The control can be mounted in several different ways. Read the installation instructions and make sure it makes sense but the wiring is very simple. I had to file my throttle ridges to get the grip on but other than that it was really simple and a quick instal, it took me longer to figure out where I wanted the controller. I just returned from a 2600 mile trip where I traversed temps into the 20's and rain in the 40's and never went past 75% on the heat control ( I don't have hand guards). I cannot imagine needing these on 100%.
Buy these, enjoy them and never look back!

Super Tenere Grips
I added the Oxford Adventure grips to my Yamaha Super Tenere. They are a perfect fit to the width of the original grips and work perfectly on the bike. I wired them to a switched accessory fuse, but supposedly the electronics in the system will turn them off even if they are wired directly to the battery. The controller works great and is easy to use with gloves on. From a heating standpoint, they have a wide range of power output. At 100%, they are extremely warm!

I put these grips on my 2004 DL1K. You do want to be careful to angle the wire on the throttle side so it doesn't foul the brake lever when the throttle is open, but installation was straightforward, and the plug and play wiring harness makes connecting things easy. The controller is easy to use with gloves on, and auto shutoff to save your battery if you forget and leave them on is a nice feature as well. On the top two settings, they get truly hot, so I tend to use them on the lower settings. Warm fingers = happy riding.

luxury on two wheels who knew?
I bought these grips after reviewing them on Revzilla
I thought that they would be a good idea for future trips on my Vstrom and did not think I would use or need them in SF Bay Area .But they have proved to be a real bonus on the bike .Getting caught in the sudden fog or just when the temperature drops below comfort levels is no longer something to simply endure.Its kinda like having a campfire on the bars to warm the hands and everything else warms too.These are a cheap luxury and when you have them, you won't want to ever take em off.

One of the best mods I've made to my bike!
Had my mechanic install these on my 2011 Suzuki GSX1250FA and I couldn't be happier! They work great and are a little bigger and much more comfortable than my stock grips. I've found when my hands are warm it keeps my whole body a little warmer especially on those Spring evenings after the sun sets and I don't have my warmer gear on. I can also wear my normal gloves and ride in 40 degree weather with these on and I don't have hand guards on my bike. Get these! You won't be disappointed!

Conquer the winter
I ride year-long and after purchasing the Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure Grips - I have realized that for years I've been such a fool.
Now I get to experience the joys of riding in any temperature with the comfort of toasty hands and finger tips!
Oxford is the way to go - their plug-and-play system is fantastic. Wiring directly to the battery leads - its just connect and route it through the bike. Oxford is generous with their wire lengths, so I decided to tuck and bundle the excess length (no problem, I had room).
The grips are fantastic. Thicker in diameter than my original grips - I quickly adjusted and prefer the feel. It gives more area that my glove contacts the grip = more heat. Regular cold days I might run 20 or 40%. It was low 20s today w/snow - cranked those baby's to 100% and I was happy.
I had to file the lip off my throttle end (plastic on the KTM) for a proper fit, a few extra minutes but installation was a breeze. Like others, I had a panic moment when installing the grips with the super glue (the second you put it on and it gets stuck mid-way through the grip I just started mashing on it thinking it'd get glued stuck mid-way on my throttle).. but it went on smooth and secure. Had to adjust my throttle and brake because the right grip end poked out even after trimming. No biggie.
Love the product! It's a must-have, I feel I'll be using it all year long because it adds so much comfort.
