    One of the first things I did to my Chieftain. Work well and get used often.

    I have them on my Springfield DH. Had them installed last October, they were on sale, cost me about $300 OTD installed by dealership. Worth every penny.

    Now that you mention it -- I forget about the heated seat. I don't forget about the grips.

    Love them on the RM. Strongly considering adding them to the Springfield.

    Avon makes some, but when I asked a few months ago, I could not get a good answer on if they are plug and play or f modifications are needed.

    The simple answer is “yes”. Gloves can not prevent blue hand, something only preventable by heated grips.

    That's funny. I need the clutch side for the same reason. I'll send you a PM.

    In the low 50’s this past fri. Ran the grips at 5. I was warm the whole 20 mile ride!

    I think I've only cranked them up that high once.....was riding in 40F rainy weather.....the grips on the RM get so freaking hot, it's amazing! (and I LOVE them....)

    Yeah I did not know what a difference warm hands make for a comfortable ride. So glad I pulled the $$ trigger.

    I am positive that I’ll never buy a bike without heated grips again. Even in the mid 50s they are a huge difference.
