Heat Demon External Heated Grip Warmers Kit The Symtec Heat Demon Heated Grips are a great, must have accessory. 2-stage heated grips that keep you comfortable and warm and riding with these really do extend your riding season. This quality kit allows the heating elements to be fitted neatly and discretely under the OEM grips or your own favorite aftermarket grips. Easy to install, with 2-stage heat settings, the kit is suitable for all types of bikes, tourers, sports, and off road / enduro bikes. The kit consists of two heating elements on flexible Mylar tape that attaches to your handlebar (clutch side) and throttle tube (throttle side) via permanent adhesive on the back. The right and left heaters are different, to accommodate lower heat tolerance of plastic throttle tubes. Features 3 amp draw (36W) on the high position. No external resistor or other parts are needed to install. 3-position (off, high, low) metal toggle switch or surface-mounted plastic rocker switch Increases rider safety and comfort Extend the riding season Easy to install

Information on Revzilla was complete. The package arrived 2 days ahead of the expected delivery. Instructions were clear about fitting and wiring. Installation was accomplished by following the steps, getting the grips off is always a challenge even with an upgraded air compressor. The grips are nice and toasty for the morning commute. I installed the grips as a back-up to heated gloves, one failed on a trip, since has been replaced by the manufacturer. Warm hands are definitely are better for safety. With these heated grips you don't have to stop to change to heavier gloves the day cools off on a day trip. The high setting is good the get the grips up to temperature and then the lower setting works for keeping maintaining. I would recommend these. A word of advice, before you buy take the grips off and see if you have a knurled surface on the bars, be prepared to grind this down, otherwise it's a piece of cake.

The humidity in the Mid-Atlantic area is the sweaty issue. This suit make ride feel like shirt sleeve with armor. The knee pads can be adjusted to be very comfortable, just takes a little patence. You can keep the suit on if you take a trip to the supermarket, very comfortable to wander around in epic ventilation. I have the yellow reflective strips which do get you noticed, highly recommended for commuting.
In traffic you can feel the abient breeze, so no baking at the stop lights.
The mesh ventilation in the legs prevents my dress pants from being pressed into multiple creases, I can wear a suit to the office and not have to have it uncreased once I get to work.
This is a great value, does exactly what is expected, fit is nominal. You can be cool, look cool and be protected.
Ordering was easy, delivery was ahead of time. Great purchasing experience.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The boots arrived and fit snugly. The two position latch closing is a good feature.
The padding on the left boot did not quite go up to cover the seam about 2" below the lip of the boot on the outside. I used a piece of foam to buffer the seam but now the boots are more supple I don't need it.
Plan on walking around in the boots for a while just to mold them to your feet and introduce a bit of flex to the upper.
They are comfortable, great grip, easy to put on and provide a lot of protection.
Pros Great Value, Rugged, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fit like a glove! Fingers are long enough and shaped for operating your machine. The outer does get soaked but the inner liner keeps you dry. I use these a lot they are very comortable and a good seal to the arms.
Give good tactile feel. I like them. The wiper on the left finger works very well once you get the action.
The double layer does not make you sweat even at 92F with the sun beating down.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Watched the product video to understand how the helmet works. Checked how to size the helmet. Reviewed the return policy (very good) incase needed. Helmet came well packed. fitted like a snug glove, met all the helmet fit tests. Having spent some time in it, it is part of me. Excellent product and service. This is my first helmet now I'm getting back into riding after many years. I looked at many helmets before choosing this style, being able to hold a conversation clearly when stopped without pulling everything off is great, particularly in the rain! The visor clears well.
Thanks Shoei and Revzilla for representing it accurately.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.
