Default Replacement Grips

The heated grips on my '08 are deteriorating. The rubber is feeling like a bad batch of gummy bears. If I don't wear gloves, my palms look like I am wearing gloves. Is there an aftermarket "heated" replacement grip available anywhere, or do I simply have to do an OEM replacement?

look on the net for grip puppies. Good feel don't leave your hands black or tacky. You can feel the heat just fine. They slid over your grips.
If you have a goldwing shop around stop in they usually have them

Heat Demons and Avon grips both are options. Actually heat demons are used in the Avon grips. However they won't work with the victory stock switch since they offer more heat settings than low/high. You can mount their switch on the vision's dash but it looks like ass. For a clean look, OEM is still the best.

+1 on the grip puppies. Don't use soap to put them on though like the instructions say. I use hairspray. It is 10 times easier to slide the grips on. If you ride a lot, you will need to replace them about once a year. Still cheaper than a new set of grips.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

I have the Avon heated on mine. Since I have a Ness bike it didn't come with any. 4 levels of heat and the grips are many to choose from. I got mine through Witchdoctors. The controller is made for handle bar mount which our Visions won't take. WD shaves the mount for a flat surface mounting of your choice. Mine is on my center console.

Waaaaay better than stock heat (Wife's XCT has them so I know). Sorry no pic of the controller mounted. Mine is under my GPS on the center console which you can visualize in the last pic. It wasn't mounted yet.

Spoke to Avon on Monday. They are working on heated grips that work with Victorys that don't require the modified HD controller. I did not ask about the timeframe. I just needed a regular set of grips. I would call Avongrips.com and ask for more details.
