Take some pics when they get in and let us know how well they work.

Christ! How can you go wrong at that price?

If mine weren't working perfectly I'd be buying a few sets of those at that price!!!

Well, if I install them and they don't work, I'll have wasted an hour or two of my life dinking around with removing the handguards and installing them and such as well as 5 bucks.

It will be good garage therapy time either way, though, I suppose.

I install mine over the hand guards and then put grip puppies over the heaters. They work very well this way. The grips insulate the bars and the thin grip puppies transfer the heat well into your hands. This way you don't wrestle with those frig'in grips again....augh!

Hope this helps....

Actually my grips are loose ie I never put any adhesive on them after I took them off to mount up new bars.. I don't really see the problem with them being that way, either. They aren't like falling off, but I can turn them around the handlebars if I want to. it makes it handy for switching bent bars. Maybe the grip heaters will help "tighten them".

Think of the bars as a huge heat sink......they will pull a lot of heat from those grip heaters...just saying, to each their own.

I just bought a set of those, too. $5.48 delivered. I mean that's cheap even by a KLRista's standards!

They arrived in about 2 weeks...maybe sooner....and look OK.

Will wire them up and snap some photos showing what I did and how it went.

I've found they are barely worth having.
