Oxford heated grips Q and A session
« on: November 09, 2014, 03:57:58 am »
Driving out and about today, 70mph plus, made me realize that I may want some heated grips.(40 degrees Fahrenheit in Chitown today)

Seeing that I just purchased a trident can, a 2005 Harley sportster, new suspension(for previously mentioned purchase), screaming eagle exhaust, alligator bob leather seat and multiple oil changes I am a little low on funds at the moment.

I find it hard to part with 200+ for OE heated grips with the Oxfords running around 90 bones. Has anyone tried the oxfords on the trophy yet? Or maybe another brand?

As discussed in another Topic "Anyone fitted Heated Grips themselves "

... you could always buy the individual parts and fit them yourself,
which ( bizarrely ) works out a lot cheaper than buying the full Kit  :169:

If you get them here, for example : Triumph e-Store all the individual parts needed add up to $100.43  :028:

Check with the supplier before purchasing - there appear to be two variants - one with a Shorting Plug and one without.

When fitting themself you will still need a trip to a Triumph Dealer to enable the Icons on the Instrument display,
although the Grips will still work before then - so could be put off until next Service time ?

Thanks guys. I read that posting previously in regards to kit buildout. I had my doubts, but pulled he kit explosion and was baffled by the difference in cost between parts and kit. Long story short, I ordered the parts. 103 and some change shipped.

Having just fitted heated grips to my Tiger 800 I think you did the right thing.  With all the parts its just plug and play without any fiddling, especially if you want to use the Trophy heated grip switch.
