With this method you get to use the dirt grips you like and when they wear out you just put new ones on. The fancy KTM heated grips are extremely hard and molded as one piece so they are non replaceable.

aw that's a good idea.

FWIW, snowmobile grips are the same way. Polaris uses a high and a low trace, makes the wiring easy if you don't want the cost/complexity of a controller.

The RSI high-output ones are really warm, I put those on my Pro. Is nice. And bird-approved.

love the oxford setup but with this you still choose your own grip.

I did the throttle on both sides with ATV heaters. The ATV heaters were much less expensive. Got them from Grand Prix. Seems like they were about $35. It's been several years ago, so can't remember for sure. But they work well.

I've picked up Symtec's for bikes for $30-$35, occasionally they're cheaper on sale.
