When I got my New Silverwing in 2014 I asked for heated grips to be fitted. They fitted Oxford grips that has a low and high setting. On the leaflet with the grips it just says "Original Commuter Heated Grips" It does have a product code of OF771. Hope this helps. As an all year round rider I have had them more or less on "low" all winter, as they are wired to the ignition they can't be left on to drain the battery. Smile

Crustycrutch.....I've fitted the Oxford Premium Grips OF 691. They are fitted directly to the battery so no need to wire through an ignition source making the wiring a bit easier. The built in electronics prevent the battery from becoming discharged.

I used the same ones they are brilliant. I really like the way they sense if the bike is running or not, so you can wire directly to the battery and when you switch the bike off the grips turn off too!

No, just the usual stuff having to remove tupperware and feed the wiring through. You also have to remove the handlebar shrouding as well and make sure you have enough slack for when turning the bars from side to side. I think I did mine in an afternoon and that wasn't hurrying. Well worth the effort.

Yes that's a good price, but those are the sports ones. You'll need the touring ones for the silverwing, they have a more cushioned grip http://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/101830
