Yeah ... that's kind of why I'm not a really big fan of aftermarket crap. I've always been very satisfied with Triumph gear, even if it is somewhat overpriced. I've already been disappointed with Rivco Risers (bolt holes shallow) and Rivco lighted mirrors (improper fit) and Rivco is supposed to be good gear.
The only other after market stuff I've tried is electronics and luggage. The luggage (Saddlemen and Tourmaster) - no problems. I also use a Signal Dynamics flasher on my taillight and a Screaming Banshee horn ... both great products. Everything else is Triumph factory accessories.
I was thinking of the Kuryakn grips, so I really do appreciate your post. I think I'll go with the Triumph heated grips instead ... probably excellent quality and while not "pretty", my guess is that I'll get some use out of them since I live in the north. I'm betting that I won't have to worry about a catastrophic failure either.
