Hi, Can anyone recommend any heated grips for a Cali.  Oxford now seem to have cornered the 'quality' end of the market, but personally I have never been impressed with their products.  There are lots of Chinese ones out there of variable quality.  I also want one where the switch goes on the bars and that don't switch themselves off when the revs drop.  Any ideas?
Thanks
Everyday is a good day to ride a bike, but some days are better than others.

I really rate the quality of Daytona Grips. Not the cheapest but nonetheless very good.

They were doing Keis brand at a decent price recently.

Got Keis from 2 wheeljunkie £19.99 easy to fit to the V1000 and very easy to fit onto the EV on the EV take bar end weights out easy they are held by a rubber stopper , get a very very thin screwdriver under the rubber grips and gently open it a wee bit a squirt of wd 40 and work the driver around the grip came off real easy, On the throttle side I used a Stanley knife to cut the very edge from the heated grip took the rubber grip off same as the other side ....
I then cleaned thoroughly the bars and used rubber solution glue slid the clutch side on and refitted the bar end weight same with the throttle side MAKE sure you re use the thin plastic "washer" and make sure the throttle operates ..re fit the bar end weight then wire up as per diagram, I took the feed from a switched live at the fuse box presto heated grips took me about 30 mins ...On the V1000 I did have to cut off the old grips .... but the EV the grips are totally ok and re useable

I use the oxford grips for two months now. Apart from the ineterconnectors which are crap they look well made, the routing of the wires right out of the grips could be better. They work.

The wraps are'nt bad....I think they are Oxford....and they do have a bar switch with a lite....and of course are easily removed...and the wiring stays in place till you need them again....

It's not England cold but it does get to 4°C in winter nights when I still want to ride.
