    As heated grips go, this is a good value. They work well and the rheostat is a nice touch... doesn't look cheap. They have made riding in the cold actually comfortable. For the first time my torso gets cold before my hands do. I have ridden on the interstate for more than an hour in 25 degree weather comfortably with these grips.

    My only complaint is with the installation. The left hand grip went on nice and snug but the throttle side was just plain loose. I had to apply some filler material underneath it to get it to grip the throttle sleeve effectively. Even with that it came loose one time when I was on the road and I ended up riding home just gripping the throttle sleeve.... a real PITA. Once I replaced the filler material I was back in business. It would have been nice if the grip had just fit the first time.

    The oversized throttle grip makes installation a pain. I put some toolbox drawer liner around my throttle tube...lubed that with grip glue, and pounded the heated grip on. Both grips are oversized, so these might not be for people with smaller hands. Also, there is no relay included, so if you install per the instructions, you would drain your batteryif you leave the grips on by accident.

        Comments about TRACKSIDE Deluxe Heated Grips:

        This product was very easy to install and came with plenty of wire length. I installed a set on my 2012 KLR650. Right side throttle grip was a bit on the loose side, but I lathered on the contact cement and it adhered well. These grips get very hot. I have only ridden on short distances (10 miles) so far, and when on high they start to cook your hands in 35 degree weather while doing 75 mph on freeway. I would recomend this product, especially for the price.

        Inflexible, hard plastic underneath

          Comments about Deluxe Heated Grips:

          I tried to install this on a pair of aluminum bars. Even with heat it would not go all the way on the left side. On the right side it was too big. Figured out why, the inner part of the grips is hard plastic like in-ground sprinkler pipe with no flex. Couldn't get the left grip all the way on or off using heat and a gear puller and had to cut it off. On the up side, Cycle Gear took them back. So if they will fit for you, great, but didn't work out for me.

          A second problem is the control doesn't actually reduce the electric draw, just ports it elsewhere. An issue if you don't have much electric output.

          I went back to using the the stick-on pad type that has three wires for a true high/low option.

          Try them, not much to lose and if they fit for you, great. Otherwise take them back.

            The reviews were mixed when I bought these so I kinda took a chance, but I'm glad I did they are awesome !
            About 5 mins into your ride these things are warm enough you need to turn them down. Grips are larger but if you have large hands they are great.
            Could use some diagrams for where and where not to cut if you need to open the ends though, I was afraid I was going to cut the conductors inside when I opened the throttle end (I have hand guards and bar ends) 2nd gen KLR

              I bought a set of the Deluxe Heated Grips for my motorcycle. I have never owned a set of heated grips and was a little worried over some of the reviews I had read, but for the price I had to check them out. They installed easily with no fitting problems. Used them on the first ride, 20-degree weather and only had to have them turned up 3/4 of the way. Kept my hands nice and warm!!! Great product, great price!!!!

              I have a nice heavy riding jacket and gloves with a liner...still got cold in the mornings. Heated grips makes a HUGE difference. Better to spend money on this than expensive gloves. Quality of the product is surprisingly good for this low of a price.
