Heated grips on 2008 - 2011 Blade - Fitted
At the main UK bike show last November I picked up a set of 'R&G' heated grips and fitted them last week. Was not to much trouble, wired into the switched live feed for the tail light.
Today did first really long ride with them - temperature 5 - 8'c all day, some sunshine but also low cloud / fog / mist
Verdict is that they are fantastic - they have 5 heat settings and did not need them above 3 (OK I was using thin inner gloves with my summer gloves) but still made a huge difference.
For £30 / $45 (Special show offer price) they are brilliant - all wiring sits above airbox under fabric cover, with control on top yoke - think Honda want about £300 fitted for the official set.
Got 170 miles from a tank of fuel, which really shows that the bike can be made into 'sports tourer' with a few alterations (Scottoiler, higher screen, sat nav, Ventura / Kreiga luggage).
even managed to remove the old grips without cutting them so will be able to remove when I sell the bike and put originals back on.
