Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure Heated Grips The Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure heated handlebar grips are made especially for adventure bikes. The grips have ergonomically engineered surface structures to optimize riding performance. Thicker rubber in areas of maximum wear rhombus tread patterns for high levels of grip and feel diamond tread pattern where maximum grip is required. Overall grip length is 5.19 and can be trimmed to a minimum length of 4.80 without damaging the heating elements. What really sets the Oxford Heaterz apart The answer is many tried and tested features such as the silicon cables which provide flexibility in the coldest weathers and the winter grade wiring prevents cracking and short circuits. The bonded grip design has been in use for many years and is well proven. The grip compound and thermo plastic rubber construction is designed to absorb vibration, making them extremely comfortable and durable, often outlasting standard grips. The silicone wires that come from the grip are angled to eliminate water ingress and resulting corrosion/ice damage and have special unique internal supports which are heat shrunk together to prevent damage if the wires are snagged. In addition, five carefully chosen heat settings allow the perfect temperature to be selected in ALL weathers and most importantly, the switch will switch off if the voltage drops to 10.5V to ensure that the battery is not damaged to the point that it cannot be recharged to full capacity. Easier than ever to install due to the new intelligent heat controller eliminating any need to wire the positive to a live ignition feed simply connect the 2 ring connectors to the battery. You'll find everything supplied by Oxford to fit your Heaterz from a wiring loom with ring connectors to the battery with simple plug and play connectors to attach to the switch and grips, smart mounting bracket and switch right down to the glue and cable ties all neatly packaged in one box. Features Fits most 7/8 handlebars Standard length 5.19 Minimum length 4.80 Sealed for life 5 heat settings give the perfect operating temperature with LED lights to indicate the level Up to 122F (50C) Rainproof switch Draws under 4A Miniaturized electronics Simpler wiring Sonically welded 2 year warranty

I installed these on a 2011 KLR. I bought the Adventure version because of they are longer than the Sport and Touring models. The controller is a nice improvement from the older version. This is my third set of Oxfords. Revzilla was fast shipping and cheapest price I could find.

Fit
Small
Slightly Small
Large
I'm 6'6" around 190 and bought a Large Tall. It fits pretty good, but I could use about 1 more inch in the sleeves. The fit is slimmer than other Firstgear jackets, but not as fitted as the TPG line. There's plenty of adjustability to tailor it to how you like. I had a Firstgear Venture before this in the same size and it was MUCH larger all around. I don't think Firstgear jackets have a standard small, medium, large, XL across their line. You need to try it on to make sure it fits.
