Symtec or Oxford ? What are the best ? And are the Hein Gerricke heated grips the same as Oxford ?
Yep, I think your right. I just added heated grips as an option when I ordered the bike.They look the same as Daytona heated grips in KTM packaging..
I got the KTM ones on my SMT.They're not the best by a long chalk.Too bloody hot or not hot enough and nothing in between. End up flicking between start and on all the time. Mine are also starting to wear quite bad aswell after 12000 miles.Yep, I think your right. I just added heated grips as an option when I ordered the bike.
But the do work bloomin well whoever made them. Always had an issue with the ones on the Dakar as the left would get nice and toasty but the right was frankly shite.
No such problems with these
The Daytona/KTM grips are crap. I suppose they do comply with the Trades Description Act in that they heat the grips, but on full blast (Start) - they're so hot that they fry your mits and after a few miles they become uncomfortable, or luke warm (On). You'll keep having to switch between the two settings (just as the dealer warned when I had them installed).They look the same as Daytona heated grips in KTM packaging..
Need to run wires through your clothes then and unplug them etc. Too much of a pain in the arse for my liking. Gloves have also been known for overheating and cooking hands. Rode with my KTM grips all through last winter and just my summer gloves. Apart from too much heat/not enough heat they were fine. I now tend to just lift my palms and fingers off the grips and let some cool air in under my hand from time to time.Hmmm, interesting comments. Maybe heated gloves would be a better solution
