    Is it possible to have both?
    On their site they say there could be a problem fitting Oxford and KTM grips.
    I`m guessing after market wrap around heaters would work.
    Any one know for sure?

    I have the G2 and KTM heated grips, they work fine, no problems.

    +1 as Goti. I have the same and works fine as well.. Just an FYI...

    Since the G2 has the rough surface some have ground it, made it smoother etc so the grip fits easier. I was able to get it on as is with a some patience but I don't plan on changing it. Just try to line up where you'd want to have the power chord coming to the grip so it doesn't get in the way.

    We have warm and safe grips on a 400 cam, works well.

    Warm hands are essential for good control in the cold.

    what he said :D

    I used black silastic to re-glue the KTM heated grips, so far so good

    Any one in OZ stock the G2 tamer? I rang Dalby but no go.

    No, I got mine from G2, iirc $135 shipped.

    I've seen them on fleabay also, maybe worth checking out.

    The KTM unit is a copy of G2, but dearer iirc.

    Not sure about the price difference but i would go with the G2 system rather than the G2 tamer. It comes with a few cams (I was able of choosing them when I got mine) so you can find the one that suits you better
