Oxford Heaterz

I bought a pair of Heated Grips called Oxford Heaterz for my
1993 R100GS.
Anyone install a pair and use the superglue supplied?

Any tips?

I have heard many different dos & don'ts.

Daryl, I fitted the Heaterz Premium Sport grips to my 1974 R90/6 recently and am loving them. I really like the five heat settings and the controller is easy to use with gloved fingers.

Fitting wasn't straightforward - I had to turn down the ridges on the alloy throttle tube on a lathe to permit the RH grip to slide on with a slight friction fit. I used the supplied super glue, brushing it onto the LH bar, the RH tube and into the grips as recommended. As expected, the glue sets quickly so you need to be certain about the initial fitting angle as you push the grips on. Think it through, make chalk marks - that sort of thing.

Wiring was simple enough. Wiring on my bike is somewhat modified and I have a supply of extra switched power, earth and always-hot power terminals in a panel under the tank for this sort of addition. I added a 10A fuse to a switched (by the ignition switch) power terminal as a supply to the grips.

i understand the concern about using super glue, since removing the grips would probably involve cutting. That's ok with me.

A feature of the Heaterz is that when the supplied voltage gets much below 12V the controller turns the grips off and the green LED flashes. I've noticed this happening while idling at traffic lights.
