Default Heated grips

I think I asked this once before but too lazy to search for it on the phone this evening. So I apologize in advance
What AFTERMARKET heated grips are some of you using.
Ones to buy......ones to avoid?

On Strom, oxford heated grips. Pretty good heat.

On Bambi, show chrome. Not as hot as oxhords but okay.

Oxfords were around $70 or so from Twisted Throttle. Iron pony has them also.

Has anyone self-installed the Oxfords? Is it simple/complicated? Does it require adding relays?

Oxford Premium heated grips are a piece of cake. Plug and play. No relays. Work great too.

I know the original post is a couple of yrs. old, but I finally got around to installing the Trackside brand heaters I bought from Cycle Gear last August.. Installation was ok, however, they don't mention on the pkg that you'll need adhesive for the throttle side. Picked up some of that gorilla snot adhesive & slathered just enough on the throttle tube & left it set-up overnite before finishing up w/ the wiring connections. Got everything all tucked away so it looks factory & the main point is that the grips do their thing. Rode in to work yesterday a.m. w/ the temps in the low 30's & could definetly feel the warmth through my heavy padded deerskin gloves.
I think they were on sale in one of their latest flyers for less than $40 also!!

you have to be careful what glue you use. the heat from the grips can break the bond of lesser glues.

Yep, I was wondering about that also... We'll see if the Gorilla Glue 2-part epoxy I used holds up. :>)
