I'm very pleased with my Heat-Demons. The heat up in a short time and get very warm. I set them on high to heat up, then drop 'em down to the first or second heat setting. The directions would win a contest for world's worst. Read then a few times before commencing the installation, so you have a grasp of what they are trying to tell you. During the job, you'll find better ways than they suggest. Great product though. I like that there are no exposed wires. There is adequate space for the furnished backstrap that holds the control in place. I placed it on the right cuz I have too much stuff on the left bar.

Here are a couple, the mfr and Amazon. You can simply Google "Heat-Demons Internal grip heaters." They do come in black and chrome.

I actually like them on the right side better. I didn't think they would work like that but thinking back, I guess there is no reason they wouldn't.

Anyway to the OP, They work well. I don't know if the metal ness grips will be as comfortable as some sort of rubber grip, but Im sure it will help. I bought mine on eBay for $120 from some motorcycle superstore. There are a few different versions. The older model for metric bikes don't get as warm as the updated version. I called Heat Demon directly and the lady gave me the model number for the updated ones. Their customer service was top notch! Once you have the right model number, just search eBay and amazon for the best price.

I wonder if they updated their instructions also. The ones I had to work with were the worse. Whoever wrote them had to be on drugs.
Incidentally, you'll need to drill 2 holes in the bar according to the instructions; one for the wires behind the controller and another for the wires to exit for the power source. For the latter, I used the hole already there for the clip that holds the wire tied for the wires under the bar. Just wire ties the wires to the bar--the appearance is identical.
You're welcome Mags!
