Heated Grips

I just got an email from M+P advertising R+G heated grips for £29.00.

These got a 'best buy' from Ride.

Any thoughts?..or options...

They were fitted to the XT when I got it, which I was pleased to see as I have had them on my Blackbird for about four years and not had a problem.

They are reduced..normally £45 or so ...

TBH I thought R+G were a quality product..

I have been using £25 Dr Bike heated grips from J&S for years and they work just fine, you don't have to pay top money, my mate with Oxfords on his XT says my grips get hotter and faster than his, I don't have the fancy control but i do have five settings. Just make sure you fit them properly, using connectors, a fuse, relay and seal all the electrical connections.

I just took today a set of dr bike hot grips off a bike I have just bought to strip. They work fine if anyone wants them I won’t use them as I have a set of Oxford on my xt and I also have a new spare set of oxford grips I took off a bike that I fitted them to I sold the bike after 3 weeks so took them off so I have a spare set so don’t need te dr bike ones
