    Tried to put on heated grips to my R80 Gs Basic some years ago with help of a member. Failed. He was good in electrics and said no need to pay so much for ready made heated grips and better to make a good one by buying all needed parts. Sent me diagrams, parts lists etc... But It confused me and was difficult for me to find all that things in the city I live.

    I think it is better & easier to buy and apply a ready made grip. But can't decide which one is better.
    I don't want to throw away the original grip which is on my airhead now. So don't want to change them with something like Oxford which I need to change the grips.

    Heater plates which put under the grips looks sensible but don't know how to apply them.

    Would like to hear advices about this issues: which one is better?
    Oxford style ready heated grips or
    The heater plates which put under (already have original) grips. And how to do it!

    :huh

    Cheers
