Music to my ageing ears! Given the Mk1's interest in stator/reg/regulator frying perhaps this accessory is best avoided! Warm all over spells.......C..A...R. :087:

My Mk1 has Oxfords. They’re fabulous. I used them last weekend and had to turn them down to 40%.

Best solution I found, which I had on my Fazer 1000, was Oxford grips and Barkbusters to keep the wind off the outside of my hands.

Do very little winter riding now so only have heated grips fitted. These have come in very handy whilst touring in the mountains.

Never had a set of Oxfords fail on me, and have had them hard wired or direct to battery. :028:

I am lucky enough to have Honda heated grips, which came with the bike, which was just as well as they are over £200! Very neat. Very efficient. Should be for the money.

Like others here, I found that the backs of my hands were cold. Cured this with RST battery heated gloves, which heat the back of the hands not the palms. Sorted. Battery lasts quite some time on low, which is sufficient. I find as I age, I am more susceptible to the cold. So have a wired in heated vest as well for long winter journeys, which works well.

The heated grips I removed from the Biffer were OEM Honda, guessing they came new with the bike and, judging by the wear on the grips, probably lasted nearly ten years as they weren’t working when I bought the bike. Having removed both Oxford and OEM Honda from previous bikes, the build quality and heating element were superior to the Oxford grips. Honda heated grips are available from Fowler’s Parts for £140 inc VAT. Part number 08T50EWA801.
