Grips
« on: December 31, 2014, 10:20:45 PM »
Got some Oxford Heated Grips for Christmas. Unfortunately in our climate these are a common staple on bikes here. I'm just glad I snagged a set, I've been listening to everyone rave about them. Since I ride early and late in the season these should come in handy. Just have to find a mounting spot for the controller....

Did you install these? I'm curious about how much drag on the system these will cause...how does the battery hold up? The old RRs don't start charging with the alternator until 5,000 RPM...is it the same for the newer bikes? You peaked my interest...

Never mind about the newer bike comment...I just noticed you have an '03 also LOL

Have not installed, but will next year once I get off my ass and get my swingarm spools fixed. Still have no idea where I'm going to mount the controller. But was thinking of making a combo mount for the controller and my walkman mp3 player. I'll figure something out over the winter. The bike is away now and I have nothing to do but dream of what could be.  :banghead:
Not concerned about the battery, I'm never below 5k rpm, and honestly when it's cold enough to need these you're not on the bike for long :) Should be ok.
