Hmm. Those would be good on my other bike.

Wonder how well they last. Shame they are not quick turn.

I 'll go back  to my favourite vsm  heated grips thank you .
Something electrical and that cheap always scares me, I get visions of holding onto burning handle bars

Me too.
Bought cheap heated grips. Unboxed them, had a look at them... then bought the Oxfords.
Had not a problem with them. They even helped me out. On a ride noticed that the grip controller was flashing. This only happens when the bike is shut down if you don't turn it off as the controller does not sense a charge. Any way it was flashing on a ride, when home put the volt meter on the battery...low charge, the RR was on its way out. I would have not known that.
 In most cases you do get what you pay for Razz

I've got Oxfords.  On a 16 hour trip down from the Northern end of the state in heavy rain, at Easter, they were priceless.  

When my "waterproof" became sodden early in the piece, I ditched them for my Summer long (unlined) ones and cranked the grips up.  I was a bit dubious of how this might affect the state of my battery over the time, but there was no problem with the high setting for many hours. (I do not also have accessory lighting, GPS)  Obviously the Bandit is capable of delivering plenty of power. Most of this ride was after dark.  I did not get cold hands, though they were very wet, through 4 consecutive tanks of fuel.   

This is now my preferred way of operating - the unlined gloves are easier to get on and off, provide better feel, and the "good gloves" are going to give up anyway if it is really wet. Thinner gloves provide a better conduit for the heat to the hands when wet.

Add the Barkbusters Bizzards to the mix and your hands will be warm and dry. Can't speak highly enough of them.

I bought some gear of Gus a little while ago and he thru in his spare set of heated grips.

I haven't used them and probably wont as I've designed my own, so Greg you can have them for the price of postage.
