    As good as my MUCH more expensive grips!

    Great buy! You can't get electric heat to your hands for less than this! These work as well, if not better, than my $120 heated grips. I use them on my Dual Sport bike & only wired up the HIGH temp setting.... Can't believe I'd complain about this but they are almost too hot on high. I was concerned that there was not a larger element for use on the left side to compensate for heat transfer to the bar. Turned out to not be an issue because the elements get plenty hot!The plastic toggle switch provided did not inspire confindence for offroad use but $6 will get you a better switch from any local auto store.

    Good, with a few caveats

    Overall a good product but I didn't install the resistor used in the Lo setting. I tried it out first and made the mistake of touching the resistor to see how hot it gets. Plenty hot, let me tell you.

    I just use it on the Hi setting and didn't even wire the Lo circuit.

      Comments about TRACKSIDE Grip Heaters:

      I picked up a set of these for my Girlfriends R6. She commutes year round and said the worst part is her fingers in the low temps. I installed and tested these and they work awesome. She's a fan.

      Install was easy but wiring took a little longer than actually installing the grips. I also used some safety wire on the throttle side so make sure the wires dont break over time. (A post I had read regarding these.) I picked up some new grips at the same time and all went together well. She's quite happy.

      PS> I would also recomend some thermal tape for the clutch side as the aluminum tends to zap some of the heat out of the grip. After the thermal tape it warms up nearly as quickly as the right.

        I added these between a set of grip puppies and my stock grips. On low they are really warm and on high there are almost too hot until it gets below freezing. bottom line they make a huge difference and would add them again.

        On sale for about half price is hard to beat. Wires at resistor can break over time. I slip about a half inch of plastic tubing over the wires on each end of the resistor, then fill it with silicone caulking. When it dries the caulking supports and protects the wires.

          These are moderately simple to install. Just follow the instructions. However, you will need to buy a Fusible Link ($1.95 at the auto parts store), as this is not included in the packaging. I recommend 14 gauge wire with a 15 amp fuse. Also, be sure to wire this into switched + power from your ignition switch (you can Google the proper wiring diagram for your bike). Also, I found the toggle switch a little on the cheap side and also a little clumsy. I sourced a really nice SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) rocker switch ($6.95) from a wiring products store. This made it! Once you go heated grips - you won't go back.

          Comments about TRACKSIDE Grip Heaters:

          The money spent on this product makes it a no-brainer to extend the riding season. I added an automotive style relay and fuse holder for safety and to ensure it didn't kill my battery if I left the switch on. I don't recommend using the "low" setting because the power resistor in the kit gets extremely hot! Some electrical knowledge is required to install this product safely.
