xr heated grips

I had the heated grips installed a couple weeks ago and must say I'm very satisfied with have just use the low setting and they get very warm at 29 degrees a whole better than the ones I had on my rocket3 which after it got below 45 degrees wouldn't do much for u
I would most defintly recommend the victory grips to anyone

The wife got me some for our anniversary and I'm enjoying them immensely. Great for taking the chill off if the hands start to get a little cold or for keeping them toasty on a cold day. It's been in the 30's here this week and my hands have been good. I wish the wiring was a little longer though, I can see the individual wires under the jacketing on a 3" handlebar pullback.

If you think grips are great WAIT till you get a heated jacket.
Now you will know what toast feels like.

I've been looking into getting those as well. Is it something I can easily install myself?

+1 on the heated grips!

Tried heated gloves with my previous bike, but the wiring was always a pain to deal with.

Last two long weekend bike trips happened to coincide with cold fronts where the temps didn't get out of the mid 50s on one trip and started in upper 40s with high in low 60s on the other (hey that is cold for Texas). Not super cold but would have been very chilly without proper layering and the heated grips, especially riding for 8+ hours a day.

I had my grips installed last year, but since then I changed out my bars on my own and would say I could have installed the grips easily myself.

Cheers,
Randy

The hardest part is getting the clutch side grip off and the end caps. Everything else is straight forward.

Just as a little added information. I use my heated grips on low even when it is not really very cold. I have diabetes and my circulation in my hands is not very good while my arms are extended. Using the heat adds much comfort to my rides.

Put heat in the seat and you won't need all that other stuff.
