Heat Demon Heated Grip Kit with Metal Switch
A definite must!
Heated grips are a definite must if you are going to ride in the cold weather. These were several times cheaper than the OEM grips and I am very happy I bought them. They are also easy to install. 2 small wishes: 1) longer wires and 2) bracket to mount the switch.

Good product with short wires
I installed this on my 1980 Yami Midnight Special. Installation wasn't difficult; I used dish soap and the Pro Grip 842 gel grips. Getting the wiring to the right place was difficult and in the process the ring connector on the ground wire broke. I just soldered it to the other ring connector and no problems. I did find the wires a bit short; I'd rather tie up a bundle behind the headlight than have to extend the wires. Would recommend; it is warm but not too hot. Should help keep me from getting hypothermia like last year.

Worth the price. Can customize to your liking.
Installed on old 1978 R80/7 BMW. Rather than using kit switch, I used Radio Shack #54-037 On-Off-On lighted rocker switch(sealed/marine/ waterproof) and also added 5amp in-line fuse. If you use the included toggle switch, order Radio Shack #54-905 rubber boot cover. The beauty of this kit is you can use Grab-On Grips which I have used for 30 years. Make this a winter project for proper contemplation and clean job. Have not actually tried them yet, but they feel great just on low setting. Use high for initial heat up.

Calienta puños sin ningun problema, incluso en 2 llega a quemar y hay que bajarlo.
Buen producto y a mitad de precio que en Chile, facil de instalar.

These are a great alternative to OEM heated grips
I've been using the Symtec grip heaters for a long time now - they work great. What's even better, the latest models come with a mounting bracket for the switch.

Works as advertised
Basically it does exactly what it is supposed to do. It keeps my hands warm. The low setting works great. The high setting is too hot, at least for me and the temperatures in Mobile AL. Instructions were a bit lacking, but not too badly. If you have just a little technical capability you can get through the install with no real headache. The kit SHOULD have a line fuse in my opinion. $4.00 at Autozone will solve that problem however. Overall I like the product.

Great product, few hassles
This is the third set of these I have installed. Great quality, easy installation, very durable. These things get hot on the high setting, which I rarely use, the low setting is usually sufficient. The only negative is that the metal switch that is supplied seems to be of inferior quality as the toggle itself is loose in the housing, it works fine though.It would be nice if a weatherproof rubber cover were included. If your installation allows, use the plastic rocker switch version or better yet, a heat controller.

i cant believe i have froze my hands for so many years. I just put these on the TW before a recent ride and wow do they work good. The right grip does get a little warmer than the left but who cares when your hands are warm. When i left at 8am it was 28 degrees outside and i rode to town with the grips on low. High will almost cook my hands. No need for big fat gloves. I rode with vented leather gloves on and thats all i needed. I did have a cheap set of mitts over the bars but i dont think they were needed. Best $50 ive spent on a bike..
