Oxford Hot Hands Heated Grips
These were really easy to install with plenty of wiring for my 05 GSXR600 and they get very hot. Even with Winter gloves and a freeze out liner inside I have to take my hands off every once in a while so they don't burn. They make a huge difference when it's cold outside.

Exactly as advertised
This product had a very easy install (and I'm a newbie with no experience - if I can do it, anyone can!). The grips get very hot, but that's the whole point. Yes, of course it would be better to have a temperature control, but that would add to the price. The Velcro stays in place on the grips and makes it only slightly larger in diameter - I'm a female w/ small hands and it only took me a couple of rides to get used to it. For me, the only downside is the appearance of having the wire on the exterior of the bike. But, it's better than freezing my hands off! I wouldn't recommend these as a permanent fixture because of the appearance, but they are absolutely the way to go if you only need them for a few months (thank you So Cal!).

Just as advertised
I love these things. They are easy to install and get hot, hot, hot. I really like the idea that they are so easy to remove because I didn't want permanent ones. Revzilla had them to me 48 hours after I ordered them online....wow.

Very nice for cold hands.
I'm in Texas and ride year round, commuting to work - 30 mile round trip. I got these a week ago, so I've used them every day for a week. Temps were (F#- 49, 42, 34, 33, 29. #cold front came in# First day they were Way to hot, #not cold enough out), had to turn them off on the way. I really noticed the bulk it added to my grips, BUT I have small hands AND they did squeeze down some as the week went on, so.... not that bad. 2nd day a little better because it was a little cooler. On Wed I really needed them. They would get too hot in my palms and I would turn them off....cool down and turn them back on. the colder it got the less I turned them off and on. On the 29 degree day I didn't turn them off, just lifted my hand for a second to cool my palm.
All and all I really like them because they work and I can remove them every spring.

Oxford Hot Hands Overgrips
Bought these grips as an alternative to permanently installing heated grips. They can be installed and removed in minutes and are very hot. My fingers used to go completely numb on early spring rides when the temps were below 40F. I have been out riding now in the mid 20's and my hands and fingers have stayed toasty warm. If I am in slow moving traffic I have to turn them off because my hands start to get too hot. Great product.

These were pretty easy to install, even for a mechanically challenged person. They warm up quickly, and cool down very quickly.
You only want to use these with winter weight gloves, otherwise you'll probably burn yourself. they were a little too warm through my middleweight olympia gloves.
if you are only going to do it once, you might be better off with the replacement grips. if you hop bikes all the time, or sell frequently, these are great. They do fatten up the grips a bit and it can be annoying, but you get used to it compared to having frozen hands.
