James Z:The end is open, so the bar end still fits and so a Barkbuster should be no problem. At worst you might have to fabricate a short spacer of the exact diameter of the handlebar to move the Barkbuster out slightly so it doesn't tighten against the throttle and keep it from moving freely. I had to do that for the bar end of a Yamaha I put these on, I used a copper plumbing pipe spacer cut down to about 1/8 inch. You could probably use PVC pipe too. Nov 24, 2013
James L:Yes, these grips have open ends and should accommodate bark busters bar end weights. I needed to add an additional washer to my bar end on the throttle side because the grip was a little long for my ZX6R. When I first put the stock bar end weight back it was pinching the grip enough that it prevented the throttle from closing. Simply adding a single washer gave it the extra space needed for the throttle grip to operate properly.Nov 24, 2013
A shopper asked:I have 2009 Kawasaki concourse sport tour bike. will the Oxford Heaterz Sports Heated Hand Grips product install well on this type of bike? i'm not very mechanical however with detail instruction i will have a better chance.Oct 21, 2013
James Z:I don't have a Concours, but I have installed these grips on two motorcycles so far, a Yamaha FZ6 and a Suzuki GSF1250 Bandit. The Bandit was a snap - remove old grips, install new grips, then figure out where to run the wiring back to the battery (HINT: Be careful hear that the wire isn't pinched under the fuel tank or it may wear through and blow the fuses - guess how I know this? Check the wiring every time you lift or remove the fuel tank for any service, not checking one time is what got me). The FZ6 was harder, because I had to install a spacer to get the bar end weight out far enough to not be pressing against the grip and making the throttle difficult to turn and return (the grips could have been trimmed shorter, but I preferred the nice finished look of the grips over a possibly sloppy cut job). Just take your time and it isn't a hard job.Nov 13, 2013
Tim D:You should do a google search to determine the diameter of your handlebars (or call a dealership and ask).
The install is actually straight forward, and the most difficult part could be with fitment of the grips (see my product review for details) due to Oxford's manufacturing tolerances.
The wiring is extremely easy and straight forward - follow the directions and you shouldnt' have a problem.
I would (prior to removing your old grips, and installing these) pre-run the cabling from your handlebars to your batter, to insure the pre-cut length is long enough for your application. On my bike, the connector cabling was almost too short and I had to run the cables about 3 times to find a route that worked.
RUDY B:It depends a lot on the throttle tube. If the throttle tube is smooth it aids in the install. If not, you have to dremel it smooth. Word of advice, do not use the included glue, it dries too fast. The grips fit is tight enough without use of glue. I have personally done 3 installs. The toughest part is the grip install but if you have changed grips on any bike then it sould be okay. Another key part of the install is to make sure that the wire for the is positioned correctly prior to pushing grip on the bar (i like the wire to be on the bottom). Also, it helps a lot if you use hairspray on the inside of the grip, it helps with lubrication and eventually when it dries acts like glue...hope all this helps you...great product.Oct 23, 2013
Robert K:Sure it will and it will work better. I've installed these on 2 friends' Connies. The instructions are easy to follow. The most difficult part is removing the plastics and lifting the tank to run the wires. You simply wire it to the battery (the module makes sure it will not drain your battery if you forget to turn it off, no worries). Then you install the grips and mount the controller to the clutch perch with the inculded longer bolts.Oct 23, 2013
Thomas K:Yes, get the ones for the 7/8" handlebars. Might be a good idea to tap a relay into your tail light or license plate lite to switch it on instead of direct to battery. If direct to battery and left on, might drain the batter once the bike is shut off. Plenty of info on wiring the relay on line. In my experience the hardest part was sanding the handlebars so the grips slide on.Oct 30, 2013
David H:I just installed them on my 1988 Goldwing GL1500. They are very easy to install. The whole job took 30 minutes. Just make sure your handlebar size is correct. Have been using these grips for about a month and love them so far.Oct 21, 2013
A S asked:I have a 2011 KLR 650 and was not sure if the heated throttle grip was 1 piece with the tube or do I need to purchase a new tube? Presently the KLR has the grip and tube as 1 piece. If I need another tube does RevZ sell one that will work?
TIM V:These are just the rubber covering you slide over your existing throttle on one side and over the bare handlebar on the other. The inner diameter holes are specifically different sizes to accommodate this.Dec 3, 2013
