Heated Grips

Is there a plug under the tank on speedmaster to plug heated grips into?
If so what make grips?

I've run Oxford heated cruiser grips for the last 2 years without a single problem. All the necessary wiring reqd is supplied in their kit.

Do they just plug straight in then?
Or is there wiring to do?

Oxford heated grips come complete with there own wiring loom , all you need to do is connect everything up then connect the live to a good live or direct to the battery and the neg to a good earth or again direct to the battery . I have used oxford grips on 2 bikes for many years wired direct to the battery with no problems ..

There is no plug and play grips i'm afraid, it's a wiring job, embrace the challenge I use heat demons, very tidy install & no big control box...

I stumbled across the Oxford Hot Hands - http://www.webbikeworld.com/r3/heated-motorcycle-grips/ - which fit over the existing grips and can plug directly into the SAE socket near the battery. Seems these would be plug and play, but I don't have any experience with them.

Jonny, been running my heat demons all last winter and with our weather most of the year with no problems, they do only draw about 3 amps. I can't speak for Oxford products as I've never owned then but a believe there can be an issue with the controller

Cjp, I'd worry about wrapping something around the grips, would they slip etc, wiring things directly to the battery would would but forget to switch them off and you've got a flat battery in minutes use a relay and find a switched live.
